When you visit France from as far away as Australia, you might not get a chance to come back very soon. So, of course, you'll want to pack a lot of action into your holiday in France with kids!

My guest Joanne Scott on today's episode experienced a lot of France in a short time. She shares some fantastic tips we all need to hear to make our trip to France more enjoyable.

We'll talk about their week in Paris, their quick visit to the Loire Valley and another quick hop to Burgundy. Some of these things went great. But some were not as great and things got a little stressful at times.

We like to keep it real on this podcast, let's hear about what Joanne would do if she had a do-over. Take a listen so you get inspired and don't make the same mistakes!
