Jousting fun in Semur en Auxois

Well what a fantastic sight. Semur en Auxois as it must have been in medieval times and oh how it suits it. All manner of sack cloth and bad teeth to behold. A market oozing rustic treats. A rare chance to enter one of the towns magnificent towers – the tavern for the weekend complete with wenches. BUT the absolute star of the show has to be the collection of medieval games for the kids (and childish adults) set out on the remparts. Where else could you climb into a hobby horse and give jousting a try and how hilarious to strap the entire family to a pair of four footed skis and pathetically attempt to move forward. SUPERB FUN! Off to enjoy La Bague tomorrow (France’s oldest horse race and equivalent of Sienna’s Palio). What a place ! See you soon Lorna x
