Hello everyone! I am so excited to show you my pictures for the past week. I am residing at La Girauderie in Brossac, France. It's an old french farm manor house wpurchased a little over 15 years ago by a group of english men, interested in the restoration project.
I have been staying here with Paul, the owner, and Kathleen who is also visiting. Both are from England and I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them.
Last week was phenomenal weather, unfortunately this week doesn't appear to be as nice. I have been working on the garden and some organization projects in the library and office space.
I was able to visit Angloueme, the jewel of France. We drove (about an hour away) Friday morning to spend a few hours traveling around the city.
On Saturday, I traveled to Lourdes, where I stayed through Monday. I was able to visit the Grotto and the religious areas, as well as explore the historical spots like the defensive armory built above the city. Probably my favorite adventure was a hike I took Sunday up the Pic du Jer. I loved being outside and the view, which you'll be able to see below, was fantastic.
