wandering through Dordogne
After 15 days of jumping from place to place in France and Italy, the Golden Girls were ready for a little rest and relaxation. As par for this journey, we picked a spot on the map because it was there and headed to Nova Siri, Italy to spend time unwinding on a beach.
Florence, Italy is a place you should try to see at least once in your lifetime. For “The Golden Girls”, two of us were making repeat visits. That meant this had to be a unique and fun experience for each of us to remember. Little did we know […]
So many friends are contacting me for ideas on where to go on “girl trips” around France. Let me share the adventures of my buddies, the Golden Girls, from our tour of France and Italy. Perhaps you’ll get some ideas for your travels.
A recent weekend in Marseille turned my perception of the city inside out. Now I can’t wait to return. I’ll admit, a weekend in Marseille was not at the top of my travel list. Even though it’s less than two hours away from Uzés. It’s surely because I’ve […]

Temperatures were in the high 70’s and a light wind […]
Not everyone who goes to Provence makes a stop in Orange, France. I’m unsure why because it’s not far from famous places like Avignon and Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Plus, it’s an extraordinary place to visit. I’ve been to Orange, France, three times now for three different reasons. The first visit was […]
There’s not much that I love more than hobnobbing with royalty. Even if it’s from a distance. Each year Uzes hosts a musical event during the summer that brings in famed artists from around the world. This year, the festival brought in French royalty — Prince Albert of […]
What’s happening in Uzès France July 14? I set out with my camera to see how the French celebrate in this small town. It’s all about family, food, dancing and fireworks. This year, it was also about brocante. A hundred or more brocante dealers showed off their best […]
