I really want you to know just how much I have enjoyed and appreciated your podcasts. Last November I visited France for 2 weeks (Paris and Alsace) with my best friend Tracey when we turned 50years old. Before leaving we discovered your podcast and listened to all of your shows. They highly influenced our choices and experience. We left just days after the terrorist attack so we were a quite nervous but were determined to go. We had an amazing time. I love France.
We leave again in 3 weeks so in our preparation for the trip we have been listening to your podcasts again (new and old episodes). Thank you so much!! We will now visit the Opera Garnier based on your last show. Every time I hear the opening music (accordion playing) I get excited because I am flooded with memories of trip planning to France. Its like the feeling around Christmas. The anticipation is the best part. I wanted you to know I have also just joined Patreon to support you and to improve my French. My kids speak better French than me (french immersion kids) so I need to up my game!
So again….thank you Annie! Pass a big hello on to Elyse as well.
