Semur En Auxois, France September 2018

Magical Weekend in Semur — As soon as we crested the hill in Burgundy, where Semur En Auxois appears on the horizon, I started grinning. With Thomas, my French tutor, his girlfriend Stephanie and the fascinating artists, musicians and artisans I met, this weekend trip was extra icing on the cake that is my life these days. I stayed with Jacqueline and Gerrard in their hilltop home overlooking the fortified medieval town, walked lots of cobbled streets and alleys thick with flora, had more French lessons in a garden besides the rapids of a river and enjoyed wine in the town square late at night after an outdoor cinema music party hosted by a French film director.
