Travel: Latest French Inspiration

First topic about France on RawSilkandSaffron for 2018. I am sure my friends are wondering what is wrong with me to have waited so long to bring up my favorite destination and all things French :). But January has been a difficult month for my beloved city and surrounding countryside due to all the flooding, I am hopeful that they will safely pull through it.

Focusing on the positive – I found this article at the beginning of January – about Montmartre, décor de cinéma – I suggest if you are aiming to include Paris this year in your holiday (a.k.a vacation) planning and if you haven’t been, see the classic film An American In Paris before heading to the cinema. French films have been around longer than American and I am happy that there is a place in Paris finally creating an ambiance so we can truly appreciate films that are made in the city of romance.  Films such as An American in Paris (Vincente Minnelli, 1951), Moulin Rouge (Baz Luhrmann, 2001), Midnight in Paris (Woody Allen, 2010); to French masterpieces Baisers volés (Truffaut, 1968), Juliette ou la Clef des songes(Marcel Carné, 1950) and the world celebrated Le fabuleux destin d’Amélie Poulain(Jean-Pierre Jeunet, 2001). {source}

Another topic – while planning your trip – consider, TOUR LACOSTE, THE FRENCH COLLEGE TOWN THAT INSPIRED MONET, VAN GOGH AND RENOIR – a destination to consider for art lovers, or those inspired by French artists and love lavender as much as I do – a trip here would do you justice but only if planned right.
