After six days in Dordogne with my Colorado friend, it was time for the grand finale. We threw caution to the wind and took our very first hot air balloon ride over the Loire Valley. Visiting Chenonceau no less.
The tour of the Château at Chenonceau is not exactly what you’d expect from a tour of the Dordogne region of France. It’s in the Loire Valley. We drove a long way to get there, but it was worth it in every way — and from every angle.
First, a boat ride on the River Cher.
…and if that wasn’t enough…

My first balloon ride!!!
A toast to Julie and to me for a fun and memorable reunion! Here’s to friends!
May they be with us for a reason, for a season … for a lifetime!
