Down the Dordogne
I can’t tell you how happy I was to be back in a boat, cruising past French villages and paddling frantically through rapids in the Dordogne river. Follow that with a nice Perrier and grenadine cordial in Argentat overlooking said river and… aaah, that’s my cup of ‘thé.’
My memories of holidays in the centre of France are very dear to me and so when I heard I’d been invited to discover another department in the region, I couldn’t wait to pull my lifejacket on. I’m going to be sharing two posts very soon on my experience in the Corrèze region. One for if you’re a bit of an adventurer like me, and one if you only want to sign up for the chilled stuff. Whether you choose tracks, or relax, you’ll loose yourself here!
I’m not normally one for a brown colour palette, but being surrounded by nature and beautiful stone houses called for a wardrobe reassessment! I guess you could say that the Correze region brought out the hippy in me. My crochet vest never looked so at home than amongst wicker chairs and rocky outcrops!
Turns out, these flares are super comfy and actually surprisingly practical for climbing! (Highly useful life info there.) As for the bag, I brought it along for a bit of fun. Afterall, I could hardly leave it at home when I was being wished a ‘bon voyage’. NB: You may be more sensible opting for a snazzy waterproof rucksack!
Back soon for lots more on my French adventure!
