My fascination with France has been inherited from my darling Dad. I have been so very fortunate to travel to Paris and regional France with Papa, and still learn French with him now, home in Australia. An afternoon in the garden together at his house, with French music in the background and lovely chats en français is my idea of a weekend well spent. Our shared love of France has been a wonderful way for us to remain close as we grow through life.
On one holiday in Paris, I was thrilled to share an evening with Papa at a jazz club in which my beautiful childhood friend Wendy Lee Taylor was performing. Wendy invited Papa up on stage as he is quite a gifted musician. Being in a jazz club in Paris and seeing my dad and my lovely friend on stage together is a lifetime memory I will always cherish!
Papa has travelled to France many times and in this podcast episode he chats to me about a couple of places that are still on my wish list for future visits, the Canal Saint Martin and Mont Saint Michel. We also talk about his favourite region of France, his fave foods and his love of French music which is how his Francophile passion started.
