I’ve been dying to make this announcement for several weeks now but things have been preeeetty busy for me. Since I am literally about to walk out the door though and hop on a train to the airport, I better do this quick…

I’M GOING TO FRANCE! To Cognac and the Poitou-Charentes region to be exact. This will be my first blogger trip ever and I am thrilled to be joining my blogger friend Ka$h Money the Budget Traveller, Laurel Robbins of Monkeys & Mountains, and Ian Mallory of Mallory on Travel.

The greatest thing about this trip is that I know absolutely nothing about where I am going making it all the more exciting. I’ve been to Paris several times and have traveled through the south of France quite a bit, but never have I been to the southwest/Atlantic coast which is supposed to be absolutely gorgeous. In fact, Poitou-Charentes was even named one of the top 10 regions to visit in 2012 by Lonely Planet. I could go into details about the itinerary but I think I will leave it as a surprise. Most important thing you need to know is there will be cognac, lots of it.

It’s really going to be an awesome trip with lots of fun activities and I promise I will be updating as much as possible on Facebook, Twitter and my beloved Instagram. Watch out for hashtags #epicCognac and #inCognac.

Would like to extend a very special thank you to Visit Poitou-Charentes @VisitPCharentes and Magellan PR @MagellanPR for the invitation, I’m sooo excited.

See you in Poitou-Charentes!
