Champagne without the Bubbly

champ3Call me crazy but I went to Champagne on Saturday and didn’t drink any. In our last ditch effort to have grownup fun while the kids were at camp, my husband and I took a day trip to Reims, the heart of Champagne, but we had other things in mind. And to tell you the truth, while I like wine just fine, having visited vineyards in France and California, the whole tasting thing kinda leaves me cold. But even minus champagne, our day in Reims was really special. We enjoyed strolling around town, champagne-2stopping for coffee and later lunch, and touring the cathedral, the basilica of St. Remi, and the Palais de Tau, home for many years to the region’s archbishops. Reims is full on Gothic but gets a special place in history as being the site where Clovis, the first king of the Franks was baptised.
