Hello from Melbourne, Australia


New Member
I joined this forum to learn as much as possible about travelling in Europe, France in particular. I am a big fan of the French culture, food and their historical buildings just to name a few.

I am hoping to spend 3 months travelling through the country next year and as a photographer, capture the beautiful scenery and architecture. I’ve visited Paris twice but would now like to spend time in the countryside, particularly Provence which appeals to me.

Looking forward to reading everyone’s travel stories and tips.

Merci et à bientôt
It is great to see more Aussies joining. A lot of Australians travel to France and love it. We are from Toowoomba in Queensland and have been visiting France since 2006 , most recently earlier this year for ten weeks. We enjoy the slow travelling philosophy and I have several reports posted here.
Happy travelling.
How wonderful for you! My husband and I have just returned (can it really be four weeks?) after a perfect 6 1/2 weeks away. I haven't had time to write up a report about it (or about the previous three trips since 2017) but would be delighted to make suggestions and offer advice about the areas we visited (this latest time Bourgogne, Lyon and south to Langedoc and Provence). We flew into Lyon and left from Nice. Highly recommend Pirhon's reports. She does a beautiful job of them, I read them over and over.
