One's dearest friend, let's call her sister, Deb bought this for one last month on an unexpected whirlwind trip to Brisvegas. It could be called a coffee-table book (thinks to self, why coffee table when I mostly serve tea???). You can read it in a snap. It is BEAUTIFULLY - and I mean BEAUTIFULLY presented...think your favourite picture on Pinterest only in 4D. My cover image is probably a bit naff but is designed to show you the very sweet bookmark that comes with the book. Lisa and her partner Pete went to live in France in 2008 (hubba hubba). This books is a bit like a captured blog if you know what I mean. A photo on every page and a series of musings captured during Lisa's stay. It's very sweet and one can share their cultural acclimatisation (or not) as they enjoy their sojurn. The photos are of gumboots, cheese, pigeons, baths....a motely assortment of life....

My dearest friend and I had hoped to be in France for her 50th which is next Saturday. We didn't factor in the GFC, job losses and other assorted challenges - not the least of which is my complete lack of ability to save for anything. We shall settle for Melbourne instead....

France ...one day.....one day.....

As the book's intro says...."For dreamers and wanderers..."

If not to wander...perchance to dream. ( )
