First week of lent – first feedback

France was closed this week! We were staying near Châlons en Champagne so I tried to visit the cathedral there – described as a belonging to the spearshaped gothic style. The building was started in 1235. However, the cathedral was closed. We enquired at the tourist office and they said that it is not open at the moment because they can find no one to secure it. We did see the ‘impressive Gothic north facade’ so I think I can count that as a visit.

On Thursday we tried to visit the Caro Chapel of Light but this was closed for maintenance. However, we found the office and negotiated – and were let in. Pictures and more info over the weekend.

I did manage to ‘Just sit and be’ on the ferry coming home today!
