A Winter Stroll in Les Essarts
I can't help looking back wondering if I were in France at this time of year, what would it look like? I dug up some old photos of a winter stroll I did on my own , one ordinary morning in the town of Les Essarts.

Les Essarts is a quiet town rich in history right at the heart of Vendee, Pays de la Loire region in western France. One really cold morning, while,waiting for my father-in-law for his doctor's appointment, I grabbed my camera and decided to explore the streets.

To my delight, I found an old castle.
I later looked it up and learned that it started even during the period of Roman Empire
as a small wooden chateau which they later constructed in stone during the 18th Century.
Les Essarts is very very old. It is believed to have been built in the Roman Period.
A picnic in the greens sipping a mug of hot coffee admiring this charming townscape is something I would love to do right now, should I have a portal that could take me anywhere in the world.
If you were to have access to a magical portal,
which place do you want to disappear into over the weekend?
