Warm, Friendly France!

Roden museum garden in warm friendly France
Lovely garden at the Musee Rodin in Paris—more lovely hydrangea!

W“Warm, friendly France”—what a wonderful saying from the classic Hitchcock movie To Catch a Thief. I can almost see Cary Grant and Grace Kelly walking through the gardens and enjoying the warm summer breezes.

These lovely gardens are at the Musée Rodin in Paris—more lovely hydrangea! The gardens are in full bloom now and are spectacular this year. Stroll through the garden, visit the museum or just smell the roses—what treats are in store for your senses!

Another way to enjoy your trip to France would be to travel the countryside and visit a chateau or stay in one of the many charming small inns that dot the area. With it being ‘warm friendly’ France , why not enjoy gardens, explore the regional cuisine with alfresco meals and sample the oh-so-wonderful local wines. I am partial to champagne—Cliquot in particular. A wonderful rosé sounds good this time of year, too.

Enjoy a French vacation along with me today. Grab your passport, pour a glass of champagne and enjoy the photos—now let’s Go!
