So new travellers know that everyone's experience is different. I stopped at the post office in Mollages, Provence to ask directions to a chambre d'hote. What little french I know was a mess to them. A young women overhearing my attempt at conversation invited us to follow her, she would take us there.We were invited later to he home for some pastis and we have seen eachother every year since. One year we were in staying at a farm in the southwest. A couple from Belguim had problems starting his car. My husband volunteered to take the man to a gas station for help. We see this couple every year now, And in Normandy, We always stay our last night at a chambre d'hote that we like so much because that couple have become our friends.My husband and I are not fluent in French but we like nice people.
