About Me

I’m Jan, an avid runner from Toronto, Canada (running in French races, of course) and recently retired Principal with careers in advertising and education. I have always enjoyed learning, researching, helping people, and writing and have now discovered a way to combine all of these passions with my love of France.

I’ve travelled to France more than 24 times and my friends and family would often ask me to help them plan their trips. So I’ve been able to save them time and money travelling there. And, as I had done so many of the things mentioned in tour books I love to share my  unique experiences with them because today, the best memories of trips are not from one’s purchases, but from their experiences.

Paris: A month in Paris

Hi Jeffery: You mention that you want to have a month in Paris​where you can meet people. I don't think Paris is the best choice. I love it and travel there often, but Paris is a big city and very impersonal. You may have more difficulty getting... See More

Paris: Can we see Paris in a day?

Yes, technically you could see Paris in a day; however, if it's your first time, you'll be missing SO much. If you could, then DO stay for a day and a half. I recently wrote a post on what to do for 3 days. It might help. Also check out the Top sites in Paris and... See More

Where to do hiking in France

I would like to do some hiking in France in July. Ideally I would do a self-catered vacation (take care of my own meals) but would prefer to take guided day hikes as i am a novice. I can do a trail on my own for a few days; but if I go up really high I would like... See More
