Somehow, yesterday was already my last full day in Troyes. Today I will spend the day in Paris before catching a flight to the UK tomorrow where I will first visit a friend in Scotland, and then spend a few days in Ireland with my sister-in-law. After the UK, I will give the sis a quick tour of Paris, before making my way back to Troyes next weekend for one last night in this cute little town. Sure, my time here is one week less than the hubs, but our month in Troyes sure has gone by quickly…
Located in the Champagne region of France, Troyes is a lovely town dominated by charming streets and plazas, historic, half-timbered buildings, and some of the best stained glass windows France has to offer.
Appreciating a slower and quieter pace of life than what we’re accustomed to in Paris, our time in Troyes has largely been spent sampling (ever so affordable) champagnes and the area’s local cheeses, enjoying leisurely walks around town with Heidi, and admiring the town’s numerous churches.
I’ll be sad to leave this area of France next week, but am looking forward to another month some place we’ve yet to explore. Before we do that though, enjoy with me, this month’s round of photos – snapshots from Troyes.
