Not everyone who goes to Provence makes a stop in Orange, France. I’m not sure why because it’s not that far from popular places like Avignon and Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Plus, it’s an extraordinary place to visit. I’ve been to visit Orange, France three times now. For three different reasons. The […]
Any who visit Uzés, France are in awe of the Château de Duché. It’s the centerpiece of the town and home to the Duke of Uzés — the oldest ducal peerage in France. If France was still a kingdom, the Duke of Uzés would rank just below “princes […]

On the third day of the seven day Dordogne tour with my friend since kindergarten, we finally got it right. We narrowed down the “to do” list for our seven day Dordogne tour to a manageable number of places to see in one day. We came up […]
Day two on the week-long car tour from Uzes to Tours, through the Dordogne with my long-time friend, Julie, was hurried and hot–35 degrees centigrade. Happily we ended up in total luxury–a chateau! There are two luxuries Julie and I are splurging on during our 7-day Dordogne auto […]
