This isn't ours. Our ship is on the high seas right now and will soon be gliding under the Golden Gate on its way to port in Oakland. Last month a group of 14 women went on a wild vintage shopping spree in Provence. This time it was no-holds-barred as [...]
After a truly awesome spring season in Provence (two vintage tours and a wine tour based in a private villa) - sorry no time to post this spring! - I am tickled pink to be announcing a new tour offering. It's called Village Life and it will be "headquartered" in the most swoon-worthy, fairy [...]
I'm a schoolgirl again, at 52. It's Monday morning and I'm about to start my third week of Italian language school. It's been surprisingly challenging to learn. Oh well, I won't be chatting up a storm in Italian any time soon. So I plod on. There are a lot of "comeback schoolgirls" at my school. [...]
I'm here! Wow, already nearly a week in and it's even better in Florence, in Tuscany, than I'd heard about. It's the Italian equivalent of Provence, my soul region. My clients have been asking for tours of Italy for years now, so I've dived in to immerse myself so Le Trip can expand into Italy. [...]
You know there's nothing I wouldn't do for you. Because so many of my tour clients want to go... your wish is my command. I'm sacrificing my month of April in Florence. While there I'll be meeting, greeting, drinking, eating and eyeing all the delights of Tuscany that I possibly can for you, [...]
A while ago at one of my favorite French junkyards of all time, I scored a bunch of sample music boxes. They were for display and all lined up on a piece of wood. Beautiful little gizmos that gave sweet melodies. I brought them to California chopped them off the block and rehabilitated them [...]

I'm just excited about my new sign. Spreads the word about the vintage tours in France when I do markets in California. Do you like? I'm thinking about changing up my logo using elements. I think the woman is adorable but the rendering is a bit sexist or something. The way she has her [...]
Bonjour! I'm just excited about my new video and wanted to share. How's this for an early morning experience? Let me know in the comments if you like! There's still some space left on the May Vintage Tours of Provence. Contact me for the beautiful details!
What’s more iconic than the French café? My life in Paris started at 18. I lived in a dingy little dorm room with a big-personality/dramatically-inclined roommate (with a shared-by-the-whole-dorm-floor shower and toilet down the hall, but that’s another story). You bet I could often be found at the neighborhood café.
