Alphabet Challenge: F

I’ve signed onto The Blogging from A to Z April Challenge 2021.

The challenge is to blog the whole alphabet in April and write at least 100 words on a topic that corresponds to the letter of the day. 

Every day, excluding Sundays, I’m blogging about Places I Have Been. The last post will be on Friday, April 30 when I finally focus on the letter Z. 

F: France

For my seventieth birthday, my husband and I went on a Road Scholar trip to France. It was our second time to Paris but we had never been to Provence in the southeast region.

Our travel companions proved to be a most congenial group. They all had traveled together on a previous Road Scholar trip and enjoyed each other’s company so much so that they signed up for another trip. We were lucky to join them.

I’m not sure I can top that trip for camaraderie, great food, magnificent sites and pastoral, relaxing scenery. However, it’s not too soon to think of my next milestone birthday In 2022. Maybe something a little more adventurous than a placid trip to the French countryside.

This is what 80 looks like.
