Inspired by Jeff V's Novel Research thread, I decided to make one too. :-)

Things I am looking for right now are related to travel cross-country from a port in modern day Italy or France, to the Church of St. Catherine de Fierbois. Anyone been there? Does it even still exist?

I have this link:

And it is supposedly in Chinon, France. What I need is a way for the modern day traveller, a sight-seeing tourist, to get there. I also need to know if there are ways to get there by train, bus, car, river, etc?

Anyone been there?

Vera,

I suggest you contact the French Tourism Office in New York -- I'll bet they can get you a ton of information about routes and history.

This sounds like some research it would be worthwhile to do in person. I hereby volunteer, for the price of airfare, to undertake this mission on your behalf!

Paul,

Tourism office? That is one heck of a great idea! Thanks! I was considering contacting travel agents, but this is better. :-)

And as far as sending you on a mission, hmmm, maybe when I am swimming in dead presidents. ;-)
