Visiting Normandy with Teenagers, Episode 165


Bonjour everybody! On today's show I talk with Nancy Caulkins about her trip to Normandy and the Loire Valley with her family in early June 2017. She makes outstanding recommendations for places to stay, attractions to see, and activities that were engaging to her teenagers.

In this episode she also includes a tale of misfortune with a rental car that could have happened to any of us because the word "gazole" in French means diesel, not gas! But they recovered nicely and went on to a great trip in France with their teenagers.
