Bon Viveurs

Had a fantastic time in Reims over the weekend, tasting champagne. Tori, Hills, Ginia and I drove down to Folkstone to catch the Channel Tunnel over. Usually efficient, a series of blunders left us arriving in Calais at 1am. After giving up on the horrendous map printed off the Etap website, we found our hotel in St. Omer at 3:30. Saturday was spent refueling in St. Omer then driving to Reims, checking into Hotel Porte Mars (with their world class soundproofing and self-proclaimed copious breakfasts) before spending the afternoon tasting the wares of both Pommery and Martel champagne houses (the photo is of us outside Martel). An evening meal of fois gras and steak tartar finished me off. On Sunday we enjoyed a roud trip around the small villages south of Reims before driving back to Angleterre. Next time: Bordeaux or bust!
