About the Book
Join Laurie and Tom as we explore the Lot River Valley for over 5 weeks during May and June. We started our journey in St Cirq Lapopie, the Jewel of the Lot and France's Most Beautiful Village for a number of years. After more than 3 weeks, we moved onto Cahors, the Malbec capital of the world, famous since Roman times for its black wine - although we didn't wait until we arrived in Cahors before downing a few bottles. After a week in Cahors, we wrapped up our trip with a few days in Toulouse. In addition to stocking up on olives, cheese and chocolate to take home, we stumbled on La Halle de la Machine, where we took a 30-minute ride on a 45-foot tall, 52-ton Minotaur. A great trip with unforgettable experiences.
