One of the most wonderful trips my partner and I have taken was to Amboise, France. It’s such a lovely place and also happens to be where Leonardo da Vinci spent his last days. I’m a huge fanboy of da Vinci so I was super excited to visit. Tried a quick doodlewash to capture the view we saw each day while heading into the center of town.
Da Vinci spent his final days in Amboise, France where stories say he became close friends with Francis I. He died on May 2, 1519 and he was buried in La Chapelle Saint-Hubert. I love that he was always driven by curiosity and it fueled everything he accomplished. Which was just about anything and everything he set his mind to.
