Épernay and Hautvillers

I love road trips in Europe. The freedom to drive between all the different countries without all the hassles of border restrictions and immigration checks is a dream. That is something I really do love about living here. My husband and I had been driving from Stockholm to Champagne and Burgundy with a brief stop […]
