week 11 2019


I'm back in the Gironde after a great week of training in Tuscany.  I've never been there before and it is so beautiful.  If we think we have some old buildings here, they are nothing compared to those I saw in San Gimignano and Siena

San Gimignano, Siena and the sunset from the villa - the skies of Tuscany!

If you're looking for a place to visit - it's worth a mini break... or longer!  Fly into Florence.

Whatever you do in the Gironde or Dordogne regions this week,  have a great time.

Best wishes,

Week 11

Week 8 2019


If you like to watch cars, this coming weekend, Castillon hosts the 6eme Rallye Bordeaux Aquitaine Classic. 

Over 100 cars, in various classifications race around the Castillon countryside.  The course changes each year, to see where it will go in 2019 click here.

The cars will meet up initially in the centre of Castillon on Friday afternoon.  To see full details and information visit the website here. I shall certainly try and catch up with it somewhere.

Whatever you do this weekend in the Gironde and Dordogne regions, have a great time.

Best wishes,
