We drove to the cute coastal town of Marseille in Southern France.
As our usual agenda, we ate, drank, walked and took photos (in that order)!
Honestly, for some weird reason, I’ve always thought that Philadelphia was “gritty.” I’m not even sure what that word means, but I was very wrong. I found it very charming, rich in history and very classy.
We had to go to Reading Market. What a colorful place—the smell, the sound, the people were just so vibrant and alive!
Ah ... Southern France
Villa Du Sanglier is a bed and breakfast owned by our good friends, Herman and Nevenka, tucked in the romantic village of Saint Siffret, France. We ate Nevenka's home cooked meals, drank some fine French wines, and simply had a wonderful time!
We met Some wonderful folks that we now call friends! #Winetourist #SaintSiffret

Tournon-sur-Rhône is a commune in southern France on the right bank of the Rhone river. We drove through this beautiful town on our way to Uzès, France in September, 2018. We stopped for lunch, tried the local Rosé, sat outside, and enjoyed the pleasant weather. Cheers to road trips!

Old Town, Alexandria
Walked around Old Town Alexandria's harbor. I observed some folks feeding the birds, admired the yachts, and people-watched.
Of course, my walk involved some sort of shopping.
