I’ve been to France 8 times, but it wasn’t until my 8th visit that I made it to Paris. While I loved Paris and it lived up to my very high expectations, I like exploring the lesser-known places even more. Without a doubt, my personal highlight was hiking the Tour du Mont Blanc a 170km hike around the massive of the highest peak in Western Europe! Truly an incredible experience! My favourite festival anywhere in the world to-date is the The Festival of Lights in Lyon: This definitely isn’t off the beaten track, but I LOVED it and that’s saying a lot as I don’t like crowds. It’s one of the most unique artistic displays I’ve ever seen!

The Marché de Noël (Christmas Market) in Grenoble, France is magical with it's twinkling lights, visits from Saint Nicholas and even The Bogeyman. But my personal favorites? The mulled wine and the Raclette!
