Since travel is restricted, an Armchair Traveler journey to a favorite destination, France, is in order. France is a fabulous place to explore, from the Alps (do add Chamonix and Annecy to your bucket list), to Brittany (St Malo is fantastic), to Avignon and of course, to Paris.
“There are only two places in the world where we can live happy: at home and in Paris.” Ernest Hemingway
And there are so many other areas for me yet to discover.
France is both a visual and gastronomic feast. The vistas are magnificent and memorable. Equally memorable is the cuisine from croissants and pain aux raisin at a neighborhood boulangerie to local bistro dining to incredible dinners. And of course, the magnificent wine and cheese. Yes, a journey to France is truly a unique experience.
I hope that this post lets you take a pause, think of memorable past journeys, plan future trips and enjoy your armchair travel. Not only peruse books, but watch favorite movies set where you want to explore, listen to the music of that area, and prepare special meals …. enjoy the journey!
Savor your journeys… real, imagined or virtual, near or far.
