"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

Touraine and its chateaux


Chateauroux and Montresor - just two of the chateaux that we looked in on during our two days in Blois in the Touraine. I spent six months in Tours in 1969 as part of my college course and so most of the chateaux names have some memories for me. It is an area that I'm particularly fond of. It was just a shame that the weather wasn't better - all that grey sky!!
