Welcome to Nice

Memories Tour. Here We Go Again.

I left for Nice from Uzès for the 2019 Memories Tour of southern France yesterday. Patricia Sands beat me there by a day after spending a few days in Paris with friends joining our tour.

I’m looking forward to meeting my new friends, but a bit anxious because of the not-so-good memory of falling and breaking myself last year.

Yes, it’s the anniversary of my accident in Aigues Mortes, where I broke my arm, shoulder, and hip. The tour was in its eighth day. I won’t dwell on the details or the thought of it now. But you won’t hear me refer to this year’s adventure as a “trip.” I intend to stay upright.

The eighteen ladies in this year’s excursion are joining us from around the US and Canada. We are based in Nice for the first few days, where we’ll sightsee around Nice, Antibes, and the scenic coastline of the Côté d’Azur. Then we move to Arles to experience a different part of Provence and travel into the Languedoc region, now called “Occitanie.”
