This weekend, we head to a nearby Town – Troyes.
Pronounced as – Tua ( as in Tuas without the S )
Troyes (French pronunciation: [tʁwa]) is a commune and the capital of the department of Aube in north-central France. It is located on the Seine river about 150 km (93 mi) southeast of Paris. This area is known as the Champagne region of Northern France. Many half-timbered houses (mainly of the 16th century) survive in the old town. Troyes has been in existence since the Roman era, as Augustobona Tricassium, which stood at the hub of numerous highways, primarily the Via Agrippa.

This town is really awesome! It has at least 3 asian stores, a shopping street with H&M, Jennyfer and many other brands. Not to mention there is a electronics store Darty there as well.
We chance upon a Cathedral – Basilique Saint-Urbain at the streets. It really looks awesome and Gothic ! Guess we have more Cathedral to highlight!
