French Countryside Photo Essay
There is nothing quite like the French countryside in summer. Thanks to the French tripism board I was recently able to experience the Midi-Pyrenees in a spectacular way, slow and steady via a bike. Read about my experience here and here.
I want to encourage those who haven’t ventured beyond Paris to do so by posting some of my French countryside photography here from a recent trip. Thanks to Erik of the Global Trip for photos #1 and 2 below as well as the Aligot shot.
