Today we are going to visit
I stop for a snapshot of
Entering Chambord is entering another world, think of Disneyland (
We buy our tickets and have to get in through the back door. I merged a few pictures to have you take a look at how big the castle is.
Inside the castle is a lot of art and there is original furniture. Because the castle is linked with the royal family, all kind of intrigues have played here.
On the second floor most rooms are empty, and I must say this is kind of a relief. The contrast with the ground floor (that also looks a bit Disney -not bad but a little bit overdone, hé, what do you expect in a renaissance castle) is enormous, but in my heart this is more how I would want castles to look like: )
We look into all rooms, take the double stairway up and down, walk on the roof, and keep ourselves busy for 3 hours. Then it is time to go home, it is a day well spent.
Dinner is prepared on the skottel, Caroline took a surprise picture.
I cook with a Teflon® sheet inside the dish, to produce low fat food. I prefer cooking with oil. (and when I get fat? I burn better in Hell that way, though I hope not).
For sweet we have yoghurt. Would I ever have to choose between yoghurt and beer (both made for us by living organisms) I think I will prefer the yoghurt (unsweetened, sour, thick, white, the pure stuff; ) but it would be a close finish.
