Day 5 and Day 6 in France for our Wheatley Travelers!

Jean-François Henley, Wheatley’s French teacher extraordinaire, has shared the following update about our 23 intrepid travelers in France!

Day 5: Chenonceau and Chambord Castles

On this fifth day, the students visited the castles of Chenonceau and Chambord, with an extended pit stop in Amboise because of our bus’ mechanical problems (things don’t always go as planned when traveling!). This unexpected stop allowed the travelers to visit the Clos Lucé, where we saw the room where Leonardo da Vinci spent the last few years of his life (he would also die in the room). While there, the students were able to see replicas of some of da Vinci’s inventions.


Day 6: Normandy and Mont Saint-Michel

The Wheatley travelers left Tours and drove four hours to the Normandy region and visited the beautiful Mont Saint-Michel. What a sight! The bus then took them to Saint-Malo where the hotel sits inside the walled city. Students had a wonderful time walking the wall and exploring the cobble-stoned streets of the old city.
