Week 10 2018


The Antique Fair in Libourne last weekend was held in the most enormous barn I've seen.  Situated in the Caserne Lamarque (the old Police headquarters in Libourne) from the outside it looked like a regular building, but inside it was a great big space.

Spring is arriving and the temperatures are finally rising, but don't leave home without an umbrella!

Whatever you do this week in the Dordogne and Gironde regions, have a good time.
Best wishes,

Week 10
