My three daughters came back to school on September 1st. At last. They were the three of them very happy, sometimes for different reasons. 
In this episode, I tell you about their grade, their first impressions and how they live the fact to wear a mask all day long.

These few weeks in Paris before going back to school were very intense. I felt an urge to visit as many places as we could. We visited Le Louvre, we went to La Sainte-Chapelle as Claire told us that it was wonderful to see the light through the stained glass windows, we visited the Musée Bourdelle (a very nice place for a calm moment in Paris) and one morning I suggested that we could go to the Tour Eiffel. The girls were a little bit tired of this Paris craziness, but Alice, Lisa’s friend who was we us for the day, was on my side. 
Be ready for an escape, today’s episode takes you to the Tour Eiffel!

On a Friday evening of August, Micaela and I met my friend Claire for a walk in the Quartier Latin. Claire is a student, she studied Middle Ages at the Sorbonne, and she is now studying paleography at the prestigious Ecole des Chartes in Paris. We started our walk on the Ile de la Cité. We saw Notre-Dame, La Sainte-Chapelle, Le musée de Cluny and La Sorbonne. Today’s episode takes place in rue Soufflot. Who was Jacques-Germain Soufflot? This is what you are going to discover, among other facts, in today’s episode.

We came back from our holidays in Jura. Micaela left two days later to spend a week with a friend of hers in Montélimar. Felicia, Lisa and I went to Louvre during that week. We were with my friend France and her daughter Maya. Maya is found of Egyptian Antiquities. After spending almost two hours in the Egyptian section, I suggested that we could say hello to La Joconde. This what you are going to listen today’s episode.

During the second week of our holidays in Jura, we did something that I was eager to do : we spent the day with a baker at the Pont-des-vents mill. Bruno, the baker, mills his own flour, bakes bread in the old oven and sells it at the mill or on markets. Receiving people and making bread with them is part of the project he set with the village of Montfleur who owns the 18th century mill.  And he loves receiving people! We really had a wonderful day. This is what you are going to listen in today’s episode.

Last week and the week before, I told you about our first week of holidays in Cluny (Burgundy region). We left Cluny and  drove to our next location : Jura. 
Our three daughters took horse lessons and during that time Pietro and I started our day by a nice walk in the forest. Our favorite place was the « Belvedere de la Scia ». It took us forty-five minutes to go there and we had to climb more than 200 meters. But what a nice view we had over the Jura mountains!
This is where we met Mickaël who was hiking in the region and was taking a little pause. In today’s episode you are going to listen to a short conversation between Mickaël and I.

When we were in Cluny our friends Florence and Sébastien came from Lyon to stay with us for two days. Sébastien and my daughter Felicia were friends at school before his family moved to Lyon two years ago. In June, I told his mother Florence that we were coming to Cluny in July. Cluny is only an hour from Lyon by car. 
We visited the abbaye de Cluny on wednesday, the day of their arrival. It was a very interesting visit. There isn’t much to see because the big abbey had been destroyed after the French Revolution. But we had a wonderful guide who explained everything so well that we could imagine it. 
The following day, we rented bikes and part of us rode to Cormatin castle. I had a nice conversation with Emmanuel who owns the bike rental shop and he agreed to talk about his job for the podcast. This is what you are going to hear in today’s episode.

1873-07-grappes_7878.jpgToday’s episode takes you to Burgundy where we stayed last week. We had rented a house near Cluny. On Sunday, Lisa was feeling unwell and stayed at home almost all day. At five o’clock, I suggested that the two of us could go for a walk in the countryside. Pietro, Micaela and Felicia were in Cluny where there was a horse competition.  
We took the little road that was going from La Chaume to Lournand. On that road, a cyclist asked us for his way. He wanted to go to Lournand. We continued our balade. This episode tells you about the last part of our walk.

Today’s episode takes you to the Côte d’Azur! Yes, the south of France! This is where Murielle Iris lives and works. She has created her own company, Les Sauvages. She collects wild plants around the city of Nice : wild lavender, wild roses, thyme, cynorhodon, orange blossom, etc. Then, she transforms them into tinctures, infused oils, herbal teas, etc. She sells her product on local markets and on Internet.

She enjoys sharing her knowledge about plants with people who live in the city and can’t afford to go in the nature to collect plants.

I asked her how she knew when to pick up a plant and if this was a special moment. Now imagine the wonderful paysages of the Nice region, hear the wind and the bees and meet our guest!
