This weekend was my favorite group trip of the semester, and one of my favorite trips in general - we went to the Loire Valley to visit beautiful French castles! We stayed in a hotel in Tours, which is a central Loire location, and took our bus to the castles. On the way to Tours, we stopped in Bourges, to see the Cathedral Saint-Etienne (Stephens), and take a much needed walking break (the bus ride was 8 hours from Grenoble to Tours).
