Good things about autumn:
the leaves change colour
cinnamon scented candles
Périgueux, Dordogne, Aquitaine
Beautiful, remote Perigueux is unspoilt French culture at it best, with history that predates most other European cities. The town tries, and achieves, in maintaining its small town feel, and has several country events held throughout the summer, all of which involve food.
When visiting in March, the weather was the crisp, sunny Spring that was perfect for exploring; wondering around the marche, coffee on the street, and picnics by the river. Don’t be put off by the quiet of the town. Explore, and ask around, you’ll find traditional (and very informal) wine bars showcasing some of the best wine in the region; sit and listen to local French gossip whilst enjoying a glass.
The region surrounding Perigueux includes some of the most spectacular rolling hills and stone cliffs you will ever see. Dordogne is known worldwide for the size and quality of the fruit it produces, whilst the surrounding wetlands are perfect for duck-hunting. Perigueux produces the world famous Fois-gras, a fatty goose live pate, and of course truffles originate from Aquitaine.
Perrigeux railway station offers connections to Limoge, Bordeaux, and Brive-la-Gaillarde, alonside other regional destinations.
Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets.
So, love the people who treat you right and forget about the one who don’t.
And believe that everything happens for a reason…
If you get a chance - take it;
If it changes your life - let it.
Nobody said that it would be easy…
They just promised it would be worth it.
Let summer 2012 begin
