50170 Mont Saint-Michel, France
This must-see spot in Normandy is a little city on an island just off the coast that gets cut-off by the tide on a daily basis. At the peak of the town (is nice walk up!) is the Abbey of Mont Saint Michel where you can see a view for miles, once...
We walked for a few hours in Veules-les-Roses. It's a small town but oh so beautiful. Everywhere you turn there are stone houses decorated top to bottom with multi colored flowers. At every corner there is a restaurant or a boulangerie selling...
The beach at Veules-les-Roses is one of the best I have ever seen. It was recomended to us by the owner of the camp we stayed at in Normandy. She said it is a must see and I understood why when I was standing in the place I took this photo. The...
We got to Étretat in the late afternoon - early evening and right away we wanted to go hike the cliffs. We were pleased to find out the hike was very accessible and of easy to moderate difficulty. Somebody completely out of shape, like me, could...

13520 Les Baux-de-Provence, France
During a cycling trip through Provence, my group and I began our 10-day adventure with a journey up an 800-foot rocky plateau - also known as the village of Les Baux de Provence. The ride up the plateau was a gorgeous trek filled with scenic...
46000 Cahors, France
In the limestone gorge country of SW France, this bridge is a medieval monument to a legendary pact: a man wagered his soul to the Devil, and the Devil lost. While living in Paris, a friend of mine asked if I would like to visit his childhood home...
