Planning your next holiday? What type of traveller do you see yourself as, a researcher/planner or someone who flies by the seat of your pants? - personally I am a planner this is ideal for us, have something to look forward to and also ensure that I select the best activities which are in keeping with my travel ethics. Do you think twice before you book yourself to ride an elephant or pat a tiger in Thailand ?
Flavigny sur Ozerain - Burgundy - France
One of my favourite discoveries in 2010, during our European odyssey was the cute little tins of mints or lollies found in small delis or 'bureau de tabac' and souvenir shops - so when planning our recent trip to Burgundy - France, I discovered that they are still being made in a small 'village de France' in the old fashion way and I found the town where they are actually made. So it was a must do day trip to be added to our itinerary.
The little town of Flavigny-sur-Ozerain is classified as 'Les Plus Beaux Villages de France' (The most beautiful Villages of France) and for good reason. As you approach the town you get a glimpse of it in the distance, it was truly gorgeous. Flavigny is particularly famous for the production of their Anis of Flavigny lollies(mints) sold in cute tins.

Am so excited that Urban adventures have released a new experience: Cambodia cook-out - cooking class in Siem Reap - In 2013 I was lucky enough to get a trip with Intrepid Travel to Cambodia and was rather thrilled at the opportunity. Cambodia was on my bucket list after all - I spent time in both Phnom Penh and Siem Reap exploring the country with travel colleagues (the best part of my job!)
On our trip to Europe we had two short days to spare between leaving Bruges and making our way to visit family in Burgundy - and as we caved into a car hire for 10 days we decided that we should find a cool little spot en-route. We picked up our car off the train in Paris and drove into Burgundy. So looking up some random google images and a few reviews here and there, off the pages lept the town of Semur-en-Auxois. As you approach the town you can see the walled medieval city with its bridge leading into town.
