Day trip from Uzes, France through towns of the Camargue
A return to the Romance Era of French fashion is not a dream. It is alive and more appealing than ever for summer. Thanks to L’Atelier des Ours in Uzes, France for the inspiration for this post on Bohemian Chic style.
Sundays are quiet in Uzes, France. It was the perfect time to see horses, swans and otters.
So it begins… Following the adventures of the Golden Girls on the whirlwind tour of France and Italy will be a challenge. We are 3 crazy, fearless women with more energy and curiosity than we should at this age. 4 Days in Uzès Day 1-4 Four days in […]
France To Italy When ex-pats told me living in France draws many visitors, I had no idea how true it was. Since returning to Uzès in April, friends have come to see me that I haven’t seen in years…and I love it! After a two–day visit with a […]
The Nimes Arena Imagine revisiting the Roman Games of Augustus Caesar’s time. Now, place yourself in the spot where the “games” were held. Then add the fanfare, color, and a raving crowd. Such just happened this weekend in the Arena in Nimes. Battle re-enactments are popular in the […]
It’s officially tourist season by the first of May in Uzès. The shops that closed for winter are open. The town is becoming lively again with art shows and fun things to fill your day. Art, Food, and Mustang Sally Last week I was off to visit Geoffrey […]

Stop in Paris A two-day stop in Paris is never enough time to spend in Paris. Perhaps I tried to squeeze in too much. My brain was overloaded. The short visit to Paris on my first visit back to the USA seemed to be going as planned. […]
Homesick Expat in France I’ve been trying to decide how to write that I’m a homesick expat in France. There! I just said it. You’re right if you think I’m a “fearless traveler” who can take off immediately and take on a life-changing journey. But I’m not […]
On a cold, wintry day it’s good to remember the hot, summer days in Sete, France.
One of the main reasons I moved to France was to experience the French way of life. What I’ve learned so far has given me eco-friendly, economical and sure-fire ways to solve some vexing problems … like how to: 1. Treat cold sores Remember hearing about the “medicine man” […]
When I was first considering the move to Uzes, France, a new friend mentioned the “wind” in the winter, Le Mistral. Since she chooses to return to her home in London each year from late September until April, I figured the “wind” was a convenient rationale, rather than […]
