I have always been fascinated with medieval history and architecture. Who knows why ? Is it because of the brave knights or maybe because of the graceful eagles they used to play with ? I had always wanted to go to Provins but for some reason, could never find the time (or courage ?!) to get up early on a Saturday or Sunday morning and spend the day there.
Therefore, I was really delighted when one of my best friends offered to drive us there by car. It only took us 1 hour from Paris to get there in the morning (it does take much longer on Sunday evenings as Parisians seem to all be driving back home at the same time).
Provins is a beautiful medieval town but the highlight of the day, I have to say, was the bird show. So many magnificent and graceful eagles, vautours and owls flying right over us from all sides of the park. Truly amazing !
