We have been preparing for this trip since last June after our return from Provence. After falling in love with Provence, we were looking forward to a return trip to France. We read many glowing reviews of the Perigord Region (Dordogne), so we set our sights on that area for our 2011 vacation.
We started reading travel books, reviews and trip reports on Fodor's Forum & SlowTrav to help us in developing our itinerary. Some guide books that we found useful were Rick Steves Dordogne Region and the Michelin Green Guides to Languedoc Roussillon and Dordogne Region.
We can't believe the date is almost here; we have our trip items list ready and are in count down mode - only 11 days to go!
