Based on how much everyone enjoyed my New York Photo Diary, I thought I should do one for this holiday we had in France too. We stayed in a gîte near the village of Pontcirq which is 13 miles North West of Cahors in the Lot region of France.
The Lot is famous for its walnut groves and Cahors is also an appellation d’origine contrôlée of Malbec red wine, which means you get to drive past a lot of vineyards (and I mean a lot). Unfortunately, I didn’t get any vineyard pictures but there’s lots of blue sky and sunshine to take a look at.
There’s also pictures we took in the Dordogne region which is approximately an hours drive from where we were staying. I used to go on holiday to the Dordogne with my family and I am definitely planning to go back more. The photo at the top of this post is in a town called Sarlat and I just love it. The statue is hidden away down a side street and is one of those statues that we always used to find my accident, and this visit was no different which meant I obviously needed a photo to add to the collection of ones from this holiday.
One day we also went to an animal park which was near Gramat in the Dordogne area and although it was a slightly grey day this was actually a good thing as it was a 2km walk in total and the fact it was cooler definitely helped. We saw lots of different animals including lots of cute baby animals too but the most surprising thing we saw was a fox up a tree.
