I love this tongue-in-cheek prayer that someone has posted on their house in the Champagne village of Hautvillers. Here's the translation:
Give me health for a long time,
Work, not too often,
Love, from time to time,
But Champagne all the time.
Hautvillers is my favorite village in Champagne. In fact, it's where Dom Perignon perfected bubbly. I wrote about it for AFAR magazine. Click the link to read the story!
