International Women's Day 2021
International Women’s Day stands for solidarity and combativeness.
Now, I am not one for standing on the barricades, but I am one for solidarity. Unfortunately, now in 2021, women do not have the same rights and opportunities as men .
This may and should even be paid attention to.
Every year on 8 March, activities take place all over the world. If you want to read more about it, check this website
8 March 2012
On 8 March 2012, I was in Australia. It had been a wish of mine for a long time to go there on my own. I was able to make this wish come true, it was a fantastic experience.
Almost at the end of my roundtrip, I thought it would be nice to meet up with my Australian friend. I met her when we were living in the Middle East.
We lived in the Netherlands again and she had gone back to Australia.
Now that I was in Australia anyway, it would be possible to meet up.
The icing on the cake
Anyway, after I contacted her, I was immediately invited to come and stay there for a few days.
She took me everywhere, including places I would never have visited otherwise.
What an experience!
Everything was very special. These last days of an amazing trip in Australia were really the icing on the cake.
One of our trips was a trip on the “Great Ocean Road”. The overnight stay was at a friend of this friend. So I stayed with a woman I did not know.
It was the most memorable 8 March I have experienced so far. Without it having been consciously planned, 8 March was a very memorable day.
We were given a very warm welcome.
With the big ocean on the other side, beautiful classical music in the background, we enjoyed a delicious meal and had good conversations.
Every year around 8 March, I think back to this beautiful evening.
International Women’s Day 2021 offer
In addition to my solidarity, I would like to make an active contribution to this day.
As I wrote, standing on the barricade or being very prominent does not really suit me.
Last year, I thought it would be nice to make an offer, especially for women. An 8% discount on the cost of accommodation.
Unfortunately, all the travel restrictions made it more difficult to go to France.
This year we have an International Women’s Day offer again.
If you make a reservation between today, 8 March 2021 and 16 March 2021, you will receive an 8% discount.
The arrival date is of your choice.
Book now, choose your arrival date
Especially after this turbulent year, you may feel the need to get away from it all.
Nothing is necessary, everything is possible.
This offer is for women only, as it is in celebration of International Women’s Day.
So sisters-in-law, mothers/daughters, walking buddies, ladies from the gym, choir singers, pull out your agendas and book a wonderful outing together.
For the painters and photographers; in our area are many beautiful locations to paint or photograph.
Are you alone, just like I was in 2021? No problem, this International Women’s Day discount is also valid for people travelling alone.
Leave all the worries of the past year behind you and treat yourself to a trip to beautiful Burgundy.
As an extra option, you can take yoga and/or French lessons. The yoga will be given by an English speaking yoga teacher. The prices and the continuation of the lessons depend on the number of participants. If you want more information, please send us an e-mail.
If you have an idea for a theme yourself, please let us know. We can together make an arrangement. Let us know in your message that it is about this offer and we will deduct the 8%.
At the moment, many countries still have travel restrictions. The French Government has indicated that it believes that from mid-April onwards we will slowly return to the old situation. This means that the rules will become less strict.
