Day 214 -France

Here are the images from our trip to France.  Our trip was phenomenal!  We spent two days in Paris, then took the high speed train down to Provence and rented an old farm home that was over 250 years old.  Each day we shuttled to various towns in the area.  From Aix en Provence to… Read More
