Chablis region - France
17.11.2014 - 24.11.2014
Now we are only one and a half hours away from Paris (which is our next stop) where we meet Aunty Jack for a fun filled couple of days. But right now we are in a medium sized village with about 1500 people living in it - it's called Seigenlay and since the 16 hundreds till now there has always been 1000 to 2000 people living in the village.
And here's some more facts about Europe that I'll hit you with........
The biggest cities in Europe are Paris and London
Golf was invented in Scotland
The largest island in the world is Greenland
The biggest country in Europe is Russia
Monaco is the worlds richest country
We are staying in a Manor, it's just the 4 of us but it is massive and has eight bedroom, eight bathrooms, three sitting rooms and a movie theatre (that we can't work) and it's probably the nicest place we have ever stayed at. We are here for a week and here's a summary of what we get up to.
45 minutes away there is a small medieval town with nice buildings in it. But by the time we arrive everything was shut for winter so we take a ride to Chablis - another wine town. Then on our long ride home in the rain with us on the main road a police car pulls out of a side street and nearly wipes us out. We continue on, then the next minute we hear sirens and they are behind us telling us to pull us over. They finally get out of their car and If anyone has seen the movie The Heat, that's exactly what they look like. They didn't speak much English and after checking all dads documents they let us go - we are still unsure why they picked on us.....
Living in a country manor we make fires, carve sticks with my pocket knife, mow the lawns with the ride on lawn mower and generally just chill. They have a golf course on the property and us boys have a few good rounds of golf.
We head to Paris tomorrow for a week then it's Bon voyage Europe and hello USA.
Bye for now Harry
