France is one of the most sought out travel destinations in the world, and I’ve been lucky to have visited twice. The first time I came to France I was in my early 20’s and an active duty Marine. US-French relations were at an all time low and while people were still nice, a few certainly didn’t welcome our presence, I can say that revisiting over 10 years later, it was a completely different experience and it’s amazing how culture, people, and sentiments can change so quickly! I’ve visited Marseille once, and Paris twice. My next trip to France, I’d love to focus on their World War II history, and perhaps climb Mt. Blanc.
