London was much better than I expected it to be. People were nice, it was really easy to get around, plenty of cool things to see and do. I’m actually surprised that I enjoyed it as much as I did. I figured that it would be just another city, but I really had fun. Maybe that means I’ll enjoy Paris more that I originally thought as well. I guess we will see! I was really nervous about traveling solo and I still have my reservations. I have to say though, having my friend Melina for the first day of the first city really gave me the confidence I needed to continue on. It’s crazy how having the first day to spend with a friend can really make a difference. I’m confident that my choice to go ride horses on the beach of Den Helder instead of going to Amsterdam is the right one. Will I regret that decision, maybe. But at least I’ll go into it confidently. Another thing that I did not expect to have such a big impact on my travels is the fact that I’m taking footage for Snowman Films along the way. Getting out there and exploring merely to explore has been wonderful. I’m appreciating some of the little things that I see simply because I’m taking time to view them through a camera lens. I like to take pictures and document what I’m doing but sparingly. This opportunity to host a travel show and gather my own footage seemed like a great way to turn this into a work trip, but honestly I think it has been a great way to get me explore more. I’m in Bordeaux and I’ve spent most of my time here drinking wine, working, wandering and it has been wonderful. I forgot how much I love the small towns in France. These old villages have so much history along with them. It’s fun just to walk along the streets and admire the architecture. I spent much of my time in Bordeaux speaking with a wine shop owner, Anthony. He taught me how to taste wines properly and about the many different types of grapes in the Bordeaux region. We talked about farming grapes as well as farming corn. We compared stories on what it’s like running a bar and a business. I really enjoyed my time at Tchin Tchin Wine Bar with Anthony. If you have the chance to visit, please do! You won’t regret it. On to Paris!
