Maybe I can convince my sleeping beauty SO to accompany me on vacation to France next year :-)

Thank you so much for linking to me as it means I have now found your beautiful blog. I look forward to browsing through the archives, but I'm afraid I will have to set aside a rather large chunk of time to do so. I can't wait :)

You know, I think you should go there Peter. It was so relaxing but for the saga of finding anything resembling an internet cafe.

But take the camera and next time, I'd like to stay in Meyssac and would recommend it a a centrally located point, and very close to Collonges la Rouge and Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne.

Thanks Trisha, and nice to find you out here.

Maybe it was, Manic :) although I'm still longing to return to Italy.

Thanks Michelle. I had the same problem with yours and ending up spending quite some time reading through your site.
