This episode is the second part of a chat about our epic road trip around western France in the French summer of 2022.
On this vacation, my husband Paul and I first traveled from Paris to the Loire and then down to the Pays Basque which can be explored in episode 79. 
In this Loulabelle's FrancoFiles episode we travelled from Bayonne in the Basque region of south-west France up to the Dordogne, then across to Lège-Cap-Ferret which is on the coast past Bordeaux, then spent our final days in Paris before our return to Australia.  

I love a slow holiday where we stay in the one place for a month and just relax and immerse ourselves in a local scene, but I find Australians especially try to pack as much into a visit to anywhere in Europe including France as it is quite expensive for us to get over there and it takes a long time! We are quite a long way away in Oz so we want to make the most of it! But if I had the time to stop in one spot for longer and meander around a particular place for an extensive period, that would be my preference I think. Malheureusement we didn’t have the luxury of months to meander so we road tripped and I must say, it was still amazing despite moving on every few days.

In this chat you'll hear of our visits to some Plus Beaux Villages de France, our stay in the Dordogne – Perigord Noir region,  how we chilled on the coast and also how we made the most of time with friends who chanced to be in the same place at the same time on the other side of the world!

All of this during a time when the mercury was nudging 40! 
We also share ways to ensure you return from a road-trip still talking to each other... oui, it is ok to do separate things whilst travelling together!

Come and join us and lose yourself in France xx
