Overview of our DIY canal cruise: The Camargue & Canal du Midi

Written by Diane. Posted in travel

canal cruise canal du midi france

The landscapes of France are incredibly diverse. Nature lovers, beach bums, bird watchers, hikers, and all types of travelers can lose themselves in what France has to offer. On my quest to see more of France, we decided to head south to a region we had never visited. We invited my parents and in-laws on our second canal boating trip along the Mediterranean and the surrounding canals.

Last time we went east to Alsace. This time, we headed south to the Camargue, and from there, headed west ending up in the Canal du Midi aboard a Nicols canal boat. No special training or boating licenses are required making this sort of trip accessible to everyone who wants to experience France from the water. As expected, the trip was incredible!

How to bring wine back from France

Written by Diane. Posted in travel

When I bring a bottle of French wine back for family and friends, their faces light up with excitement and appreciation. It’s a cherished gift for someone special. But all you need is to have one bottle of red wine explode in your suitcase to never want to try to transport wine on a long-haul flight ever again. So how can you bring wine back from France so it arrives in one piece? Is it even legal?
