We were recently thrilled to be able to travel the canals of the Burgundy region of France in the most charming manner. I must say that this is my new favorite way to "travel deep."
We were aboard the beautiful "Le Papillon," or "The Butterfly" in English, for our one week stay in Burgundy. Le Papillon is one of the péniches hôtels travelling the back waterways meandering through the French countryside. Although the canals are hundreds of years old, these luxury boats are relatively new to the canals. We wandered through charming villages, visted centuries old chateaux and wineries, and ate some of the best meals and drank the best wine that I have ever experienced. Our little floating hotel went everywhere with us.
Although we took lots of pictures, pictures can't describe the food or the serenity of the countryside. They can't capture the warmth of the sunshine or the people . They certainly can't begin to tell about the food or the wine. Oh, the wine.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, an experience is worth a thousand pictures.
