Mont Saint Michel: French Magical Surprise and a European Travel Gem On the western coast of France, between the somber beaches of Normandy and the legendary seafood of Saint Malo, lies Mont Saint Michel.

Which Way? This Spanish Pilgrimage Is For You

“You don’t choose a life, you live one”  -The Way As travel enthusiasts, my husband and I are always thinking about the next trip, and the next, and the next. We are currently planning five trips; three official, one that may or may not happen, and one to occur whenever we have a LOT of free time (whenever that is). It is this last trip I would like to share today. Here is how it all started: In  2010, a movie called “The Way” was released to theaters, starring Martin Sheen.
