France To Italy
When ex-pats told me living in France draws many visitors, I had no idea how true it was. Since returning to Uzès in April, friends I haven’t seen in years have come to see me, and I love it!
After a two–day visit with a friend I met on a trip to China, two of my long-time buddies from work days in North Carolina found their way to Uzès. Their visit was delayed a day due to an airline strike in Paris. Nevertheless, they showed up raring to start our “Golden Girls’ Tour of France and Italy. ”
How could I resist?
Besides seeing unfamiliar parts of France and Italy, the prospect of fun and lessons for traveling with “mature ladies” made me anxious to go. The stories I can share are in this and upcoming blogs. I’ll save the others for my “tell all” book.
