French Riveria: Pure Joy From Poppies, Sun and French Food


Today, we found a great poppy field. Some people layed down in it, posed for pictures, others used them as inspiration to paint. How can French countryside, a field of poppies and French food bring you nothing but pure joy?


Durinda has helped Ruth with her first painting so Ruth was happy to show it. Her first painting and it is with poppies!


Cam and her red glassess match the red poppies. All in style.


Pat had 15 min of pure joy in the poppies.


For picnics: Melon from Cavaillon, salami with walnuts, camenbert, brie, blue cheese, mustard from Dijon, cherries from Venasque, olives from Nyons, and much more….A little American touch with the some chips!

Jackie Grandchamps obtained her Ph.D. in Molecular Biology in Belgium, and then moved to the U.S. in 1995 to conduct cancer research at Stanford University in California. Her heart has always been in travel however, and she turned her passion into a full time job in 2003 when she launched her travel business, French Escapade offering an authentic travel experience to women.

She says, "I wanted to make my dream come true: sharing my love of traveling and giving people the opportunity to really experience a different culture. Instead of the traditional 'tourist' sightseeing trip to France, I wanted to immerse very small groups of women in the culture, let them meet locals, eat authentic cuisine and 'live' an authentic experience. That's how French Escapade was born.”
