Looking for a unique road trip route through France? I took a 2-week road trip through France for the second year in a row this past September and talk all about it in the FREE online magazine Insiders Abroad! I share some of my favorite locations, as well as some tips and tricks for surviving the French road trip (look out for those tolls!). Check it out by clicking on the magazine cover above.

Photos shared in the article are available in my Etsy shop, here.

Flowers and colors galore in Alsace. I took so many photos there that I don’t know when I’ll feel like stopping posting the region…

I spent several days in the Alsace region already this Fall and became completely smitten with it within the first few minutes walking around. Although it wasn’t my first time to Alsace, it certainly hadn’t made as strong of an impression on me in previous visits, but this time – perhaps due to the freedom of having a car and having done lots of research – I was able to fully appreciate the incredible beauty and charm of the region.

One of the main reasons to visits the French countryside in September is to see the rolling hills of vineyards that seem to completely blanket the country. Of course, it’s most fun to catch them with the grapes still hanging on them, but the autumn sun would look beautiful on the grape vines with or without them. We visited Colmar, Strasbourg, and many other little towns in the area as the area firmly secured itself as one of France’s most enchanting regions!
