Lifestyle – Endless French Vacation!

June 15, 2010

Those of us who have been lucky enough to have had the French travel experience, at one time or another, have fantasized about never going back.

About continue our fine and/or fancy ramble indefinitely.Inhaling all the flavors of the food, the wine, the land and the people.

And so, it’s with the usual mixture of envy and admiration, that I’ve discovered there are four people who are not only indefinitely on vacation – but preaching their nomadic gospel on the internet.

They call themselves the bicycletravelnetwork. Find out how they can do what they do, as they talk to The Bicycle Gourmet.

French Bread Facts

June 1, 2010

French Bread Facts? What, you may ask, is there to learn? After all, French bread is just that long, skinny  loaf that’s fantastic in the morning when it’s fresh, and only good for the dog by evening. WRONG! French Bread is NOT just the “baguette.” It’s an incredible assortment of flavors, colors, ingredients and textures.

And, strangley enough, this consumer-friendly array of choices exists because of(rather than in spite of) French government rules and regulations.It was the “Bread Board’s” decision, several years ago, to abolish the fixed price for the baguette, leading to the present happy era of deregulation and competition. Meaning a “win-win” situation for both buyer and seller. The baker has the opportunity to sell at a higher price, due to increased selection/value, and the consumer benefits from the many choices available.

French Travel Advisor

May 7, 2010

Although he would probably object to being called a “French Travel Advisor”, Christopher Strong, better known as the French Cycling Bicycle Gourmet, does give us tons of inside info on all things French.

After, as he puts it, “a zillion plus” years of cycling all over the French Country backroads, the Bicycle Gourmet certainly has “tasted the land and the people, as well as the food and wine.”

If you’re looking for insider info on anything French, chances are, he can point you in the right direction. For instance – how about a region that’s warm, but not hot? With fresh local food and wine. Friendly people. And, not overrun with tourists?
