Loire Valley-Chateaux and Sites

Driving through France, especially in the Loire Valley, was so relaxing. The driving was easy and the scattered towns were small, each with a different charm. I wish I knew the names of all of the sites we saw just driving! There were many chateaux and cathedrals that we saw but were not able to go explore.

Cathedral of Saint Louis of Blois (built mostly in the 1500s)

To be in the same places as Kings and rulers dating back centuries was amazing. Several of the places had more recent historical ties to people such as Napoleon and Joan of Arc. I am starting to ask myself: since history is so interesting to me, should I go back to school to major in World History?
