FRANCE TRIP | GIVERNY + MONET

Yall! I’m doing it, I’m finally wrapping up our April Europe trip with this post! Without even trying, because it’s been in chronological order, I’ve saved the best for last :)

We really can’t brag enough about Fat Tire tour company! We love them and trusted them with a big percentage of our Spain and France trips.  This tour was also through them and was definitely a highlight for me.  It was a full day trip, 8.5 hours to be exact. We started with meeting at the storefront and packing up in a bus heading to Normandy, specifically a village called Vernon. When we arrived we walked to a mini storage that was so old and rustic it made America’s public storage facilities look like something out of 2089.  From there we saddled up our bikes and hit up the Market of Vernon.

Not only were these strawberries seriously the best I’ve ever had, literally melting in your mouth, they smelled so fragrant too!

FRANCE TRIP | CHAMPAGNE TOURS

One of the activities we both definitely wanted to do while in France was go to Champagne country. We figured the easiest route was going through a tour company so we booked a day tour out to G.H. Mumm and Mercier through our go-to Fat Tire Tours.  Champagne drinker or not, the trek out there and tour is worth it for all~ beautiful small towns, authentic French cuisine (paired with local champagne of course) and lots of history.
