Now this is a story all about how my life got flipped-turned upside down and i’d like to take a minute just sit right there i’ll tell you how I my weekend in Monaco had me floating in the air. Please excuse that cheesy start to the story but I wanted to start it off a little different. Any who as alluded to in the first sentence I have recently been to Monaco courtesy of the great people over at G.H.Mumm Champagne. This trip though was no ordinary trip because for those who don’t know Mumm are one of the sponsors of Formula One otherwise known as F1. Why does this matter? Well this particular weekend trip would enable me to experience my first ever live Grand Prix at one of the most iconic circuits in the world. Not too bad for a guy who sits behind a screen writing features in spare time right? Apologies in advance if the following induces mass jealousy, envy and awe but this was for journalistic purposes, I done it for you guys, honest! haha.
Believe it or not, there’s more to France than Paris, in the same way that there’s more to England than London. Chances are, like us, you’ve been missing out on a huge chunk of a beautiful country with so much to offer. On one end of the spectrum there are Mediterranean beaches and on the other the snowy French Alps. The Dordogne Valley fills the gap into between these two parallels with wondrous landscapes, quaint villages and esteemed French cuisine. Sit back and enjoy the view Through The Lens once again as we capture the beauty of Brive-la-Gaillarde.
