Back in October, we went on a one-day trip to Champagne and Reims - it was pretty cold already, but still sunny, and we even had some free time. You certainly shouldn't expect much work-life balance if you join an Erasmus Mundus MSc. TT___TT I just hope it will get less hectic in Dublin, because right now it seems that all I do is go to school, work on school projects, buy groceries, clean, cook and sleep. Anyways, back to Champagne and the happier days.
We visited a wine cave belonging to Castellane. The guided visit (French only) and tasting (one glass) cost 8 E, which is not exactly cheap, but it was what we came for, so we tried it.
Then we went to see the city - it was a small and peaceful place.
