This is a tale of two bridges in Provence. French families were still on holiday in France so we avoided the coast of Provence. Instead we drove through delightful rural countryside with olive groves, lavender fields, deep va...

We stayed in the Champagne area an extra night so we could go to Paris for the day by train rather than drive in. It was only an hour or so on the train and we arrived at Paris Est railway station before 8.00 a.m. Then we wal...

It was already evening when we went in to Strasbourg for dinner so we were wanding the city quite late. The delicate cathedral dominates the streetscape no matter what street or lane you happen to be in. Strasbourg and the ca...

The area of Lot is divided by the Lot River and the Dordogne River. France has a number of designated 'beautiful villages' and there are about six in the Lot area. We saw several but they were very crowded and touristy so we ...

A day in the Dordogne region in south-west France. Chateaus, castles, beautiful rivers, delightful villages and paleolithic cave paintings. A real feast for the eyes. We toured one of the caves still open to the public, just ...

In Champagne we explored vineyard trails through villages that seem to be only a kilometre or so apart, each with their own church and bells that proclaim the hours. And we drank champgne after we'd explored (by train) one of...

Between Colmar and Strasbourg we chose the indirect route rather than the motorway, a route that took us north through delightful villages and vineyards. It's called Route des Vins d'Alsace. We visited just a handful of the v...
