France travel guide
France – home to the Eiffel tower, froggie-legged treats, French berets, and of course French-speaking folks. Yup they’ve got all that, but heaps more too! It’s impossible not to like France whether it is the chic boulevards of Paris, the sparkling ski slopes of the Alps, sunlit vineyards and sun-baked beaches, the glamorous jet-set lifestyle of the Mediterranean or coffee and croissants in an undiscovered village.
