Hemmed in, but I am Free

An Overnight in Champagne, France
April 25, 2014
A few weeks ago on our way back from skiing in The Alps, we made a pitstop in Champagne and spent the night to break up our drive back to England. Ever since I got back from France, my love for wine and especially Champagne has grown incredibly. Whenever I need a bottle of authentic sparkling wine, I search for from Oddbins Champagne Range, for a bottle or two. One of the perks of driving from England to France is that you get to enjoy beautiful places along the the way. An added bonus- I get in my fix for stopping in French gas stations – where else in the world could you order fantastic beef bourguignon at a gas station that tastes just as good as one from a 5 star restaurant at home, red wine included (I’m not kidding!!!)? I am also partial to the fruit snacks (like apple sauce) sold in resealable packages that aren’t marketed towards children like in the states, but to adults! The list goes on…
Anyways, things get a bit more exciting when you venture off the motorway and into lovely countryside towns in rural France. We arrived in Champagne midday and there was only one thing that we all knew we had to do – drink some Champagne! Staying true to Buggy Designs ethos of Think Pink, Live Green, I was in search of organic pink champagne and found my Shangri-La at Drappier.
