    An exciting adventure.So, what would YOU do if you lost your house Panic, desperately search for another one and then take anything you can get Well, when this happened to Americans Michael and Lisa, they decided to take the glass half full approach When their rental home was no longer available, they put their furniture into storage and set off from Florida on a fantastic adventure with their final destination being France.Michael Barry s vivid descriptions of the south of France are guaranteed to make you want to pack your bags and go there straight away His wife Lisa has taken some fantastic photographs throughout the trip, and these liberally decorate the book, which I think immeasurably enhances it You really feel part of their experience as they travel around enjoying the wonderful old towns and amazing views My favourite in this particular part of the book is the description of Avignon, with its bridge immortalised in the popular children s song Sur le Pont d Avignon, and the majestic Papal Palace with its fantastic views.However, don t be fooled, this is no glossy tourist story, the book contains the nitty gritty bits as well The rooms and receptions they received wherever they stayed are openly portrayed, and the vast differences between life in other countries and France is honestly acknowledged Whilst we are on the subject I have to say that an important, amusing, interesting and sometimes somewhat horrifying subject which features highly is the Bathroom Reports which are regularly given For those who haven t been here I am an English expat it may seem a strange thing to write about but trust me, it can be incredibly difficult to find a toilet in France, and if you do, it might not look like you would expect.After visiting the south of France, Michael and Lisa spent a month in Paris In the City of Light they explored many of the world famous places, marvelling at the majestic Eiffel Tower and sightseeing at the Cathedral of Notre Dame whilst a service was being held They took a cruise down the river Seine, visited my all time favourite Paris landmark the breath taking Sacr C ur, and enjoyed many wonderful experiences which they share with the reader.Throughout the book you gain a real flavour of what life in France, and Paris, is like It was lovely to walk with them through Montmartre and capture the real essence of the metropolis and its people There are many interesting facts sprinkled throughout its pages, and I really enjoyed reading about the enormous P re Lachaise Cemetery which is the final resting place of many famous people including Oscar Wilde, and Jim Morrison.One of the important things I took away with me from this book is the benefit of getting a Museum pass There are many museums in Paris, of course the most famous is the Louvre, home of the Mona Lisa, then there is L Orangerie Museum which contained some wonderful paintings, the amazingly beautiful Musee d Orsay, and so many to discover.This book is highly entertaining, and it contains a wealth of information As in all countries the natives can be friendly or not depending on how they feel, or indeed their own experiences of your nationality The author and his wife did seem to catch Paris at a particularly wet time which I think made a difference, however I have to applaud them for their bravery in having this adventure I think this book would appeal to young and old, and I highly recommend it.

    Funny but yet educational readMr Barry describes a once and a lifetime experience of living and learning about a different world in Paris It was very eye opening as my husband and I are exploring the option of going aboard and hoping to have just as much excitement in our trip He paints a clear picture so you feel you are accompanying him and his wife on this amazing trip This book is very hard to put down and it is an easy read It is quite amusing and entertaining If you are looking to do some traveling or just are looking for great read, look this one up.

    I loved this book Very entertaining, made me laugh out loud I couldn t wait to get to the next chapter Fast paced story is fun to read, and definitely the type of book that I would read again for a good laugh I enjoyed reading about the amazing places they visited, the history, gorgeous architecture, museums, cultural differences, french words, travel tips, and their interesting encounters with people along the way Hilarious and unexpected moments are all throughout the book This is a great book to read before traveling to Europe, or for reading while traveling.

    I m very glad the author included a ton of photos of places he described in his book.

    Fun, lighthearted journal of an adventure that we recently completed ourselves a month in the Fifth Arrondissement, a week in Avignon, side trips to Givernay, etc So I could easily relate to the Vagabond concept The book suffers a bit from the author s continual disappointment that Paris isn t America Yes, the elevators are tiny, there s no air conditioning, the weather is not ideal, and there aren t escalators everywhere Research would tell you to travel light and plan for the weather I live in the Sunshine State myself, but don t expect sunshine all over the world Also, editing is lacking two virtually identical descriptions of the floor numbering at the Louvre, etc Still, a recommended read for those considering extended travel in France and Western Europe.

    This was a fun and easy read that made me laugh and learn at the same time I enjoyed reading about the many places the author and his wife explored, especially the month in Paris I felt like I was there on the adventure The cultural differences were eye opening, and the variety of people they met and experiences they had were entertaining Definitely a book I will enjoy reading again

    Author admits that writing was an after thought to his diary of this trip It was also an opportunity to complain a lot about a fairly ill conceived plan to try to travel as cheaply as possible, since they were out on the street anyway Trying to enjoy yourselves while not ever eating out in a country known for its food and obsession with eating well You see my point When they weren t starving, they were freezing, wet and sick

    A quick, funny, and at times off color, travel memoir about Michael Barry s time spent abroad Made me want to travel again.
