The week was not supposed to include a quick trip to the South of France and a night in Paris. The week was supposed to be spent in the office here in Kentucky...but when my friend Luke asked if I'd join him in the South of France I couldn't say no.
I spent six years taking french....can I speak french after all those years? No! ...but I can read it, and I absolutely love the history, the culture, and the bread. This was my first trip to France and it was beyond exciting to see my textbooks come to life.
For the adventure we had been invited by Grey Goose to spend a few days at their chateau outside Cognac. In the region all of their vodka is made. I don't know much about vodka...but I can tell you with scenery like that...the stuff is bound to be good.
The following are a few of my images from the trip.
