Aug 8, 2014 - Chambord

The drive to Chambord was fairly insignificant. The weather had dried out and it was sunny and warm, and although the traffic was a little bit busy, we were doing OK for time. We stopped a rest stop to get some food, and have a breather. Tess was going to take over driving from that point, but it was getting heavier and heavier and she asked if I minded continuing for a while. I got back in after our food, and continued until we had gone past Orleans, and then the traffic had started to thin out. I pulled over at the next rest area, and...

Sep 2, 2012 - Amboise & Chambord

Today we are going to head out to look at Chambord, and drive along the Loire to see what is in the other direction.

After lunch, we rode our bicycles over to another Chateau called Chambord. We did not go into this chateau, we just rode over to see it from the outside and take some pictures. This worked out great...

Apr 13, 2008 - Loire Valley...Day 3 (Blois and Chambord)

So I have to admit, day 3 of Loire Valley started out a little rough. We had been out late the night before in Tours and then continued the party in our room after we got home. Leeson and I woke up a little late and were moving pretty slow so by the time we got down to breakfast we had about 3 minutes to down some coffee and shove some food in our mouths before we had to, you guessed it, get back on the bus. We headed off towards Chateau de Blois. It was the residence of several French kings; it is also the place where Joan of Arc went in...
