Jump to last reply

Waving you a big hello from the great state of Tennessee. I need some help. My wife is turning the big 4-0 in February, and she has never been out of the country except for Jamaica on a honeymoon. I have been wanting to take her to Europe. France to be exact if you will. I traveled a good bit overseas in my high school and college days, but that was mostly through a touring company. I want to do this one on our own and travel through the country for about two weeks. Eventually winding my way down to the beaches of southern France for a few days and then back to Paris to fly out. I have 14 days to do it, and a budget of around $150 a day for lodging. I would like to see Normandy and then go down the West coast or areas inland slighly to South. Please let me know of some suggestions for staying outside of Paris, Normandy, and other major places to see on my trip. I know I am a little vague for sheer ignorance of where to go, so please enlighten me with your wisdom.

By the way don't tell the wife. She is getting 2 tickets on her Birthday at the party.

Mathieu
