In an increasingly insane world, my wife are I are thinking of returning to France next spring (Mar-May sometime). We have our eye on Dijon or Beaune as a place to plant our feet for a week or so. We usually seek out humble accomodations (2 star), and the idea of hopping onto the number 44 Bus to travel around sounds like our kind of adventure. Our idea of a great meal starts at a Boulangerie, a stop for cheese, perhaps some pate or fruits and a bottle of wine, and then off we go looking for a peaceful place to enjoy our feast. I searched all of the Burgundy forums for advice on picnicing and found almost no hits. Have we chosen the right place for this kind of vacation? Aside from our love of France, my wife is Acadian and many of her ancestors are said to have come from Dijon and surrounding communities. We're just looking for a place to slow down and enjoy the culture of today while remembering where we all came from.
