Travel Design Co
I continue to be drawn back to this compelling destination. To me, France feels like "home" as I grew up in New Orleans. In the last 3 years, I have traveled north from Paris along the Seine to the beaches of Normandy, spent time in Bordeaux, and traveled through the quaint towns of Provence along the Rhône and the Saône Rivers. One of my favorite ways to visit France is on a river cruise, as it takes you away from the larger cities and sights, and ensures that you become immersed in the romance and lifestyle of medieval times. Most recently, I experienced a wine and culinary voyage down the Rhône and Saône Rivers. What made this itinerary so special is that I spent a couple days in Arles prior to embarkation and experienced this town "just like a local." Next, I returned to Paris - my "second home," and stayed in the St. Germain neighborhood and enjoyed shopping and dining. (Special tip: You must visit Le Procope - the oldest café in Paris. No doubt, you will feel the energy sitting in the very same café where Voltaire, Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson spent many a day and evening!)
My clientele include corporate groups, FIT (Foreign Independent Travel) clients on a personally-crafted itinerary, leisure groups, couples and solo travelers. It's important that you know that I do not believe "one size fits all." I will take the time to listen and to understand your personal goals and objectives. I want to get you "there"!
