In­spi­ra­tion aplenty

France - - Contents - Katie Forsyth Colum­bus, Ge­or­gia, USA

I am a high school French teacher in the United States and have got­ten into FRANCE Mag­a­zine over the past months while on ma­ter­nity leave. I had a baby (Camille) last De­cem­ber, and my par­ents gave me an is­sue of the mag­a­zine, since they knew I would not be able to go on my usual sum­mer trip to France with a group of my stu­dents.

I have been buy­ing and de­vour­ing every is­sue since then. It is truly the next best thing to ac­tu­ally board­ing a plane to Paris, and it has in­spired me with new ideas of ar­eas I would like to visit. We have done sev­eral trips to Nor­mandy, Brit­tany, Paris, Provence and most places on the Riv­iera, but next sum­mer, I would re­ally love to take my stu­dents to Biar­ritz and/or the Stras­bourg and Col­mar area. You have also given me some des­ti­na­tions to add to my list of where I want to travel with my daugh­ter (who I am rais­ing bilin­gually) when she is old enough to go. Thank you for help­ing me to ‘travel’ and ex­plore my favourite coun­try from afar while life keeps me at home for the mo­ment.
