Our memories of France is as much about people as it is about great scenery, food, wine and experiences but the special moments are with people. We've been so fortunate to have made such rewarding friendships in our travels.
Do you know that I've discussed our travels with friends at home and they actually don't meet people - why is that? Maybe they don't spend enough time in one place. With five trips in France under our belt since 2006, the country has become a spritual home. Maybe we've missed out a little by not exploring more of Europe but we feel richer for it. The Loire is Sue's favorite. She says that each time we've driven into the Loire, who blood pressure lowers. She feels at home (away from home that is).

Mikee with his good lady Carol live in the Loire.
|Carol said to Sue, "You must cook in my kitchen and invite Ken and Walt".|
So off to the Amboise market".
|Walt, Mikee, Annick, Carol, Gerard and Ken - a night of fun and a morning of sore heads.|
Have you ever seen such a bunch of smiling faces - a night to remember.
Until we return next year.
Have a happy and safe festive season.
