|Troyes is full of half-timbered, medieval buildings like these.|
I’d been feeling tired for a couple of days. A blister had developed on my left foot and I’d been walking more slowly. It was time for some rest and recuperation. I decided to spend two nights in Brienne's hunting lodge and visit the medieval city of Troyes — which I’d heard so much about — on my free day. I went by bus there and back; the journey took only 50 minutes.
