The annual summer school of the Fédération Française d'Aikido et de Budo
Each year in late August we visit La Colle sur Loup in the South of France, for a week of Aikido with instructors and students from across Europe and further afield.
On Friday we take the Eurostar and spend an evening in Paris. Then the overnight train carries us to Nice, where we wake up in the Mediterranean sunshine and spend the day before taking the bus to La Colle.
La Colle is a pretty little town in the hills.
Our accommodation: comfortable holiday apartments in a peaceful hillside forest.
