There was one more stop to do while in France. It was not that far from the French Riviera and I have figured that I did "cool down a bit" hopping from one place on the coast to the next, since it was that year when this part of Europe was unusually hot, being hit … Continue reading France: FOUND VAN GOGH IN ARLES! (7)
Although not that popular as their neighbors Nice, Cannes or Monaco, smaller towns along the Côte d’Azur are actually the true reflection of French charm. Beaches are more pleasant, clean, less crowded, streets seem prettier, you can even meet a local at the cafe (not just tourists) and have a glass of wine in the … Continue reading France: CHARM OF VILLAGES “SUR MER” (6)
Before going to the Côte d'Azur, I have heard a lot about it, reading about "the famous names on the French Riviera beaches", exclusive resorts, Hollywood stars who once got wet in shallow waters of Cannes, Nice, Saint-Tropez, about princess Grace, Picasso's retreat. The Film Festival in Cannes or the Casino in Monte Carlo are … Continue reading France: FRENCH RIVIERA HOPPING (5)

Years after my journey Woody Allen has made that Midnight in Paris movie, and I always thought that "he must have heard me thinking" … Continue reading France: GOING AFTER BAUDELAIRE! (3)
So, let me begin with Paris. My first memory of that journey in 2003 is related to the unusual heat! Sure, it was August, but that part of Europe was actually hit by some tropical wave that made the weather - unbearable! That could not slow me down, of course, and I was ready every … Continue reading France: TROPICALLY HOT PARIS (2)
Every time I remember my first travel to France, I always smile and feel a bit proud. Sure, I did see all the landmarks and fell in love with the country, but I also had such an alluring agenda (made one myself!), that I would probably do all over again if I were to visit … Continue reading France: A VINTAGE JOURNEY (1)
It's that season again when people think about traveling, planning their holidays, going somewhere to relax and forget about their daily routines back home. And "Paris is always a good idea", right! Remember those Audrey Hepburn words from Sabrina movie? Oh, Miss Hepburn was so right! If you are into vacations with a lot of things … Continue reading One poetic trip to FRANCE!
