You may think I'm biased, and I do have my reasons. Apart from living in France, I have to stay that this country as a whole has a lot to offer. I found France to be especially unique to do to how small the country is and how diverse of a landscape it has. France has everything from the tropics, to mountains, to the country side, to steep hills, oceans, and cliffs, and even the world's capital of fashion & gastronome. I highly advise you to travel into smaller villages to really get a great feel for the people and culture. I think that one of my favorite things to do was to get lost in the everyday life. I was living in the Rhone Alps and I'd hike up a mountain that I lived on each day. On my way down I'd pass the boulangerie, boucherie and small boutiques, people would greet me with a smile and life felt so natural. Everyday felt as if I were in an enchanted film, I know that people have their stereotype of the French, but I think it's only because they assume that all French are like the Parisians...and a Parisian can be compared to a New Yorker, and that's all I have to say about that.
A few of my favorite cities include:
I have so much more to explore, I have only begun to discover France, really. Do you have any highly recommended places for me to visit in France? Sometimes I am forgetful, and I am sure there are so many things I can't exactly remember or put into words right now, but I am always looking for new destinations, and I regard word of mouth recommendations highly! Please comment below if you have any suggestions or questions.
