Feature and Follow Friday: Armchair Travel

Feature & Follow is hosted @ Parajunkee’s View and Alison Can Read.


Armchair Travel. 
Tell us about a favourite setting in a book you'd like to visit (a real place for this question).

There are many, but a place that comes to mind right now is the South of France where A Year in Provence by Peter Mayle is set.



While I may not have loved the book, I did love the sense of French country living the book gives. I would love to spend a year in France, totally immersed in the culture and language, even though I probably end up 2 sizes bigger from all the cheese and bread I would consume.

And come on, look at this place - beautiful.




Where would you love to spend a sabbatical or even just to move to good?

  6. Oh boy, those pictures!! I chose Paris, but I think we often forget the countryside of France (and Italy for that matter) are among some of the most beautiful places in the world. Following on Bloglovin!

  7. South of France with a million books and bottles of wine would be perfect. I picked Paris, but if I went to France I would have to do the whole thing! New follower :) My FF
