reims, france

No better way to go into a weekend than to talk about last weekend.

We went to Reims, France! Faye, David, Isaac, Matt, Trish and our family were looking for a great Christmas market to visit this festive season, and Reims ticked a lot of boxes- not the least of which was that we didn’t have to fly. Although, I am not sure it makes a difference if you have little kids on a plane or on a train. They can’t handle it either way.

In Reims we enjoyed mulled wine, spiced cider, champagne, Belgian beers, a frightening amount of cheese and saucisson and foods involving bacon, lots of cookies and crepes and other deliciousness, ponies, a weird carousel, a weird animatronic puppet show, gorgeous Cathedral views, a mini-train ride, and hotel room parties which involved 3 guys and 3 bottles of Four Roses bourbon. Also a lot of time on trains.

And I know this picture is blurry, but it’s a man walking a raccoon on a leash/lead. French people!
