Local Voices From Around the Globe: France has more to offer than just Paris


I was also able to learn a little more about the history of France as I paid a visit to Le Mont Saint Michel, a beautiful cathedral located on its own little island. With each and every turn, I was presented with more beautiful architecture, beautiful artwork and beautiful landscaping. I’ve come to learn that that’s just France, though. Everything here is beautiful. 

France is so easy to fall in love with. It’s so diverse and holds a little piece of its own special magic for all who are fortunate enough to pay a visit. From its beautiful beaches, sleepy little towns, flourishing farmlands, ancient cathedrals and bustling cities, France has so much more to offer than just what may come first to mind. With each day, France is becoming more and more of a second home to me.
