Around France

Last Dance with the Barefoot Blogger

Join the last dance with the Barefoot Blogger on the South of France Memories Tour.

I’ve raved about my life in Uzés and the south of France for years. Now it’s time for you to make some memories of your own. Memories you promised yourself. 

I’m thrilled to invite you to join me on a women’s tour of some of my favorite places in the south of France. Along with my friend and best-selling author Patricia Sands, we’ll play and travel together for twelve fun-filled days!

Memories you promised yourself

Remember the first time the Barefoot Blogger took you to St. Rémy? We drove through the stately blanc trees that lined the streets leading to town? We visited where Vincent Van Gogh spent his last year painting masterpieces like “Starry Nights.” We’re going there.

Do you recall our visit to the ancient Roman town of Arles and to Aigues Mortes, the walled city of the Crusades? We’ll be there, too.

How about Sete? You know we couldn’t leave out Sete with its winding canals, indoor market, rows of harbor-side cafes … and the beach? Yes, we’ll be there.

Our days will be filled with walking through the breathtaking scenery in towns like Eze and St. Paul de Vence. Learning about the history and culture of France. Our nights will be spent wining and dining in cozy and chic French cafes. For twelve days we’ll make memories that will surely last a lifetime.

As much as I love to co-host the Memories Tours, I feel like I’m running out of time!  Covid fears and lockdowns took two good years out of my travel adventures. There are so many places to go and things to do I can’t seem to squeeze them all in.

So I’m saying “farewell” to hosting tours for a while. For those of you who have joined me and Patricia Sands, “thank you!” You know how much your friendships mean to me now and forever. As for my BFF Patricia, we’ll never say “enough.” We’ll be travel buddies forever.

The Memories You Promised Yourself Tour is from September 19 through October 1. We’ll be 16 women max, plus me, Patricia, and tour guides in various places we visit. A few spaces are open, so please get in touch with Nancy McGee of Absolutely Southern France right away.

You don’t want to miss this.  It’s our chance to meet, at last!

  1. Deborah, how blessed I am to have been a part of what you call the “Last Dance” It was a remarkable trip on every level and will go down in my traveling journeys as by far one of the best! Because I know you and Patricia, I’m thinking rather than it being the last dance. it is really the 1st step to a new dance routine…can’t wait to see how you choreograph it! Your soul sister in NC is cheering you on!!!

    • What a dear friend you are, Julie. I’m so happy our paths have reconnected after all these years. Your travels are an inspiration. Let’s keep going! Big hugs!

  2. What a lucky lady I am to be joining you this September! Deborah, your smile exudes enthusiasm for life…Your candor, so magnetic. See you in Nice!
