After morning Grand Café and good conversation with the Saturday group, we were inspired to venture out to places of travel topics.
The one place that truly stood out was Domme, France. We had to see this site for ourselves. Into the Land Rover and down the road we went without any sense of direction other than “I think it is this way”. We quickly saw road signs along the way pointing us in the correct direction we were seeking to go.
As we approached what we thought was the community of Domme, which was Cénac, the signs continued to lead us a different way. Up and around the side of a mountain with tree-covered roads and tight twisting turns we reached Domme.
Out of Lany and onto the cobble stone streets of the small and quaint city. A posted sign showed viewpoints, which made my insides rise with excitement. We figured if a place posts such a sign to show people where to go, then it has something worth showing.
Our short walk by shops selling local merchandise and foods brought us to these astonishing views. This naturally fortified city overlooking the Dordogne River definitely can make a person pause to caught their breath.
After enjoying the beauty of the countryside and watching the land look alive with cars on distance roads and a tractor plowing a field, we gathered our senses and off we went to find our way back to Les Mazettes.
France’s countryside is full of whining roads, green pastures and lazy day lakes. We are looking forward to jumping into more French lifestyle while here on our journey. Tomorrow we have arranged to meet with a tutor to help us immerse ourselves deeper into the rich and flavorful culture this land has to offer.
