I was initially concerned that this weekend would seem more like a series of classes that wouldn't be fun -- or would get old very fast. Not so. Despite our limited sleep the first night - thank you United and US Airways, we had a blast.
The one thing that most people in my group didn't like, but I did, wast he Travel Abroad: Burgundy session. This was the second day at 9h30 and lasted two hours. There were 5 wine makers from Burgundy and a Moderator. The Burgundian winemakers talked about their vineyards -- in French. The Moderator would translate and add some color as well. I loved this because I was able to practice my French listening skills. The discussion was also interesting -- I really knew nothing about the region or the history - I was fascinated. Others, not so much.
In future posts I will discuss the food and the winery visit. Below are pictures from the tastings, sessions and the campus.
