My fascination with France has been inherited from my darling Dad. I have been so very fortunate to travel to Paris and regional France with Papa, and still learn French with him now, home in Australia. An afternoon in the garden together at his house, with French music in the background and lovely chats en français is my idea of a weekend well spent. Our shared love of France has been a wonderful way for us to remain close as we grow through life.

On our holiday in Paris, I was thrilled to share an evening with Papa at a jazz club my beautiful childhood friend was performing at, Chez Papa. My friend Wendy Lee Taylor invited dad up on stage as he is a gifted musician. Being in a jazz club in Paris and seeing my dad and my lovely friend on stage together is a lifetime memory I will always cherish!

Papa has travelled to France many times and has been to a couple of places that are still on my wish list for future visits:

Canal St Martin

Mont Saint Michel

Whilst chatting to me about those places on my wish list, Papa also mentioned the following:

Near the Canal St Martin:

* Parc de la Villette

City of Science and Industry

Near Mont Saint Michel:


Channel Islands

Papa’s favourite region of France:

Saint Cirq Lapopie

*  Tournon-sur-Rhone


Cuisses de Grenouille


* Edith Piaf et Theo Sarapo – A Quoi Ca Sert l’Amour
