When Women Roam

I looked at the date this morning and squealed. I leave for France in 13 days. OMG!

Beverly Teche, a member of my writing group, came home from France to visit last fall. We all talked about how awesome it would be to go visit her in her little French village, Fresnay. Then Dee Schmid said, “I think I’d actually like to go!” (She used to live in France and can speak French.) I said, “I want to go too, but I’m sure I can’t.” “Why not?” Bev asked. And that’s where this ball started rolling.

Why not? Not often do opportunities like this come along. I’m going to get to experience France with one friend who lives there and another who used to live there. Both speak French very well. I’ll have two French-speaking tour guides! It’s sort of a no-brainer.

So, to record this wonderful excursion, Bev, Dee and I will post to a dedicated blog so friends and family can see pictures and read about the places we go. Each of us will add our own thoughts and pictures. I’m looking forward to the writing almost as much as time with friends and the sights, sounds and smells we’ll see.

The blog site is pretty and will be filled with our pictures and thoughts about this grand excursion! The blog is titled, When Women Roam. We each wrote our thoughts on travel. I hope you’ll visit the site! Merci, beaucoup!

      The travel blog is temporary, but it will be a good way for a lot of people to see our pictures and hear about what we’re doing.

      • Well, Sacre Coeur and Montmartre are some of my favorite sights. Sacre Coeur is a beautiful cathedral in North Paris. It’s up on a hill and the surrounding area is Montmartre. In nice weather, artists set up easels and paint and display their wares. It’s a wonderful atmosphere. (Or at least it used to be. We went to Sacre Coeur last March when we were there, but given the rain and cold, there was none of the outdoor artistry going on. But I’m sure there will be now.)

        But of course, the typical tourist sights are a must if you’ve never been there: the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre, and strolls down the Champs Elysee, the Tuileries Garden, and along the Seine. Ooh la la, c’est une tres belle ville! (It’s a beautiful city.)
