A true American Francophile, I understand the French language way more than I can speak it. At least I always try to use my limited French first before the waiter or salesperson gives up on me and answers in English. I am One Quarter French and therefore One Quarter Skinny!
I lived in Europe for years, and now (in addition to my extensive North American travel) travel to Europe (always stopping in Paris) and have done so for 20 years. There are “musts” to do or see, but I always add something new or challenging. By adding new people each time to this adventure it also helps to keep the trip exciting. I love seeing the look on people’s faces when they see the Eiffel Tower the first time or when they light a candle at Notre Dame. It never gets old!
My travel lifestyle varies greatly depending upon my travel companions (family, friends or business associates) and situations. My trips can have me staying in luxury accommodations that I favor like The Four Seasons brand or I might need the convenience of an inexpensive but good location at a Marriott Courtyard. All travel is fabulous to me, so come along for the ride and I will share my favorite places and tips with you.
