During the summer of 2003, I had 3 separate meeting to attend in France. They were in Paris, Aix en Provence (in the southeast), and St. Malo (in the northwest). I convinced Trevor to come along and do a driving trip from the south to the north. We had time in between the meetings, and looked for unique places to stay along the way. We ended the trip at Monet’s gardens an hour outside of Paris.
