Well, the day of departure is finally upon us! We have organized clothes, shoes, toiletries, camera equipment, and maps. We are worn out and looking forward to 8 hours of plane rest.
The itineraries, the maps, locations of markets, tours, train tickets are all printed out and each city has its own nice, shiny plastic sleeve. We have our euros ready to spend, and the camera batteries are charged. It feels like we are ready to go to France!
We have our mission – to research Bordeaux, Toulouse, Montpellier, and Lyon and pick the perfect place for Neal and Diane to start their new life. We want to look at neighborhoods, markets, restaurants, outdoor space, and the general vibe. This is such an exciting trip but it’s not just vacation – we have work to do!
