How is the world coping with changes caused by the pandemic? Are you needing an escape? Have you ever dreamed of vacationing in Paris, Provence, the French Riviera? Or have you already fallen in love with France and want to return for some unique, new experiences? Join my conversation with an old friend, Janice Chung, Canadian award-winning writer and blogger at FranceTravelTips. She shares with us her favorite experiences after 34 pilgrimages to the country she calls her "heart's home." Hear secrets on where and how to run races, bike, kayak, eat, play, relax, study at a French Immersion school or Le Cordon Bleu. Whatever your heart desires, this lady born on Bastille Day can get you there! You'll be inspired by her travels in Bhutan, Kenya and Canada, too. Music Credits: Carole Edwards, "Come and Run Away with Me," Chris Haugen, "Casablanca Caravan," Dan Lebowitz, "Mysteries" To watch the Skype interview with photos go here.
