My Travels in France

Bonjour

Lorsque nous ne sommes pas un voyage en Italie, nous voyageons en France.

It seems when we are not traveling in Italy, we are in France.

France is a magnificent country to visit and travel the various regions. We have always been impressed with the broad range of geography, the rich history and the culture. There are stunning coastlines. Small quaint villages. Large cities. Rolling countryside and rugged mountains. If you can think the terrain, it is most likely somewhere in the country.

Si vous parlez seulement un peu de français, essayez.

My French is limited. I guess too many years since University where I took conversational French, but I find within a few days things start to come back. For a visitor to try to speak to people in their own language is important. The French will help you out as you make it through your questions and statements. Just don't have the first thing you say be: Do you speak English? From Paris to Nice, we have nothing but good things to say about our experiences. We have made friends in the country with visits switching back and forth from Canada to France.

La France compte 26 régions

The country has 26 administrative regions, of which 21 are in mainland France. One is the island of Corsica and there are four overseas. Each of the regions is divided into departments.

Chaque région a son propre caractère

Each regions has its own distinctive character, is known for its own cooking and also dialects. So won't get worried about learning "exact French" as what they speak in Paris is different than what will be spoken in Bretagne.

We provide an overview of the Regions to highlight some of the towns and sights.
