There was spectacular scenery in the Alps, Massif Central and Pyrenees, wonderfully warm-hearted hosts sharing their homes and digestifs, the thousands of fans and the color, noise and excitement of covering the world’s biggest race. C’était vraiment formidable!
I was pleasantly surprised by my French. It’s better than I thought it was and I was able to make friends wherever we went.
I wrote some good stories, talked to some good people, filmed interviews, made little video reports, and thoroughly enjoyed the race itself. It was great!
I could write more but maybe the photos tell a better story.
