A French Road Trip in Pictures

This summer I drove around the top half of France and rediscovered just how beautiful a country it can be (I’ve already made a great highlights video and written about doing Paris in a day and our visits to Le Mans and Reims circuits). Here are some of my favourite images de nôtre semaine.

  1. I’ve been to France twice but on those occasions were school trips. I haven’t been visited since and seeing these have bumped it up my travel list.
