(September 13, 2016, Tuesday) A trip to France ain’t complete without Champagne and fine dining.
We did those in Reims, which is a 50-minute train ride from Paris. The map below shows the car journey because for some reason Google Maps doesn’t have the option for transit. Anyway at least the map shows how far Reims is from the French capital. Plus, the map looks good.
Our first activity was the G.H. Mumm tour, which included a history of making Champagne and, yes, actually drinking Champagne.
After that tour, we went straight to a restaurant to have lunch. I tried to remember all of the fine dining etiquette I had learned several years back. I was happy because I didn’t spill anything. I didn’t make a mess! Yeah I think I’m starting to grow up 🙂
Notre Dame Cathedral of Reims
Before going back to Paris we explored Reims on foot. The Notre Dame Cathedral of Reims dominates the city.
