Time to think seriously about getting back to France.
A bout with shingles, the birth of a first grand-baby, and a bunch of happenings that would make great stories to share have kept me quite busy the last few months. But since most of you joined the adventures of the Barefoot Blogger to travel and learn about France, my US tales will go on the back burner for now.
For the trip back to France, I’m wondering if life will be like I left it. I was fortunate to rent out my apartment to a friend who tried to keep me informed. Sadly for her, Geoffrey was not well during most of my leave and he spent much of the time in and out of hospital.
Surely there’s a story or two there just waiting for me to discover. I do know that a few chickens, ducks and rabbits now reside in his fenced garden.
I’m checking out airfares for the best deals. A flight through London might be the cheapest way to get there, then take a “pond jumper” to Nimes.
Besides, it’s time for a trip back to London. I’d like to drop by Buckingham Palace to give my congratulations to the Queen. Now that we’re both new grandmothers, we have a lot to chat about.
A lineup of friends are heading to visit in Uzes starting in early May. I can’t wait to show them around and to do more exploring myself. So much to do! So much to see!

Great! Would love for you to. I’ll plan on Uzes to arrive on the 10th and depart on the 12th
Hey Debby Good to hear you are on the way back! I have my itinerary almost planned; April 30-May5 – Montpellier at http://www.les4etoiles.com/ May 5-May 7 – Carcassonne at http://carcassonneguesthouse.com/ May7-May10 – Caunes Minervois http://www.ancienneboulangerie.com/ (3 nts for price of 2) – I saw something about Caunes Minervois and have had a hankering to see it and explore the Minervois. If you will be back, I would love to come see you May 10-12 and then go to Paris May 12-14. I leave for US on May14. No problem if you are not back, I have my eyes on an apartment from the 10-14th. http://www.vrbo.com/1132700a. I’ll be getting a car in Carcassonne for my trek through the Minervois – come join me if you’d like a road trip! I can drop it in Nimes. Hope you have recovered from your shingles bout and have held your absolutely beautiful grandson. Best, Paula
I’d love to join you on part of your trip. Count on staying in Uzes too!
