By whatever name you want to call it – it’s off the table! Filled to the brim. With eager snappers who’ve snapped up all the available spots.
But – not to shed those crocodile tears yet if you were too late/busy/distracted to snag a spot.
Cancellations, while rare, DO happen. So if you’re jonesin’ to join DA BG’s French photo posse, be it in September, or next year, just scribble : “Sign me up for(September/Next year”)– in the comments, and I’ll get back to ya. Personally even.
Throw Me a Bone here, People! What are ya thinkin’?
French Travel Finds. Exceptional French Places To Stay. French Country Travel Life Guide.French Country Travel Life Expert. French Travel life Advisor. French Travel Life Tipster.French words and phrases that all relate to? Yes, clever you, yours unruly, the Bicycle Gourmet
While I have been called almost all of the above (and other names that are not re-printable in a journal as sensitive and discreet as this one) the “odd man out” here is obviously: French Travel Finds.
Those three words describe perfectly what I’ve been sharing with y’all for countless scribbles, photos and videos. But those same Exceptional French Places to Stay that often gave birth to the memorable meetings with incredible people stories, photos and videos, have, until now, remained in DA BG’s personal rolodex.
But – no more! The rolodex of rave resorts, French Chateaus, FrenchSmall Hotels, French B n’ b’s, French Gites – has been opened! And it’s contents lovingly poured into my soon-to-be-in-your-hands forthcoming tome – Bicycle Gourmet’s French Travel Finds – Exceptional French Places to stay.
In French Travel Finds by the Bicycle Gourmet you will discover more than forty destinations, brimming over with authentic slices of French Country Travel Life hospitality. And genuine French Culture, bien sur.
You will also, notice, and I hope appreciate, those Exceptional French Places to Stayare described in the unedited prose of their owners. With their own unedited images.
But wait – just because French Travel Finds is a marvy FrenchTravel Guidebook doesn’t mean for an instant that I will not be continuing to regale, amuse and(hopefully) delight you with more of my up close n’ personal collisions with French Country Life. NoSir/M’am!
French Travel = French Food, French Wine, French Chocolate, French History. And a big – no wait – make that a HUGE part of that History, are the Churches, Cathedrals, and Abbeys that really are “around every corner.”
While the “big names” of French Churchdom are universally known – Notre Dame de Paris, Chartes, etc. the lesser knowns, and they often include French Abbeys in small French Villages, have an equally fascinating story to tell.
One of my favorites of these Historical Treasures of France, is the Basilic de St. Julian in the Haute Loire village of Brouide.
DA BG could prattle on about it’s wonders, but – WHY? when you can immerse yourself in it’s History soaked wonderfulness in these Videos? The first with marvy music throughout. The second, in French. With equally cool ancient sounds.
THROW ME A BONE HERE, PEOPLE!
