Everytime I make a visit to the US to see family, it’s always the same. My grandson insists on watching videos of his grandmother’s hot air balloon ride. I’ll admit, when I think about the day I took my first hot air balloon ride, I get as excited as […]
Fete Votive Uzes 2015 was spectacular. How will this year’s event compare? By far, one of the most exciting events of the year in Uzes, in my opinion, is Fete Votive. Next week it’s live along the main street in Uzes with lights, action and extraordinary booming sounds. […]
When driving down the backroads of France near Uzés, it’s a common sight to ride alongside tall stone walls. You know these beautifully laid stones must conceal something amazing. Perhaps behind French garden walls there’s a story to be told.
Antibes has a special attraction for me. Perhaps it’s the architecture and the narrow colorful avenues. It could be the quaint little hotel where I stay that’s so close to little shops and outdoor cafes, yet so hidden away. On my most recent visit, the main attraction was the food. Here’s a look at Antibes restaurant favorites
What a day! What a way to end the week traveling and touring in Dordogne. Let’s just say, it ended on a very high note. My traveling companion and long-lost and found friend from grade school, Julie, and I put some serious miles behind us. We drove over […]

We were up and ready to meet our guide early. Then off to see and learn around and about Nice.
My BFF Patricia Sands just published the re-release of her novel, The Bridge Club. The book is a celebration of friendship shared with eight women over a half-century… and counting. The Bridge Club: A Celebration of Friendship Patricia and I met in Uzès five years ago at the […]
Along the way back to Uzès from my first visit to the Dordogne, I received an email from my good friend, artist Andy Newman.”If you like Rocamadour, stop by the mini Rocamadour, Narjac
Five years ago the Barefoot Blogger started the extraordinary journey to live in France. Remembering some of my early days moving to France, drama, and friends is so much fun.
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 splurged on during our 7-day Dordogne auto tour. […]
It’s not a coincidence that the South of France Memories Tour would visit Antibes, Aix, and Arles straight in a row. They are definitely A-List tourist spots south of France. A-List Tourist Spots South of France: Antibes You know by now that Antibes is one of my favorite […]
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 […]
there’s more fun ahead.
