After a very wet, chilly, and eye-opening adventure around France, I now face a mountain of blog posts to write as well as my usual deadlines at the office! I definitely need another holiday and soon – but this time in the sun please! Burgundy is a beautiful part of the world, and I feel lucky to have explored the region. However, as the residents would also agree with me, rain go and do one! And would you believe the UK is basking in sunshine! Typical MTM luck…
