Welcome to France

After the Alps, we need to raise the cultural bar a bit. All dressed up (pardon my wardrobe malfunction), we embrace the French joie de vivre. Pas de problème!

A fun way to take our travelers to new gastronomic heights is to order escargots. At first the reaction was, as you can see here, "Snails!? No way!" But with a gentle but firm hand, all but one in our group ate their escargot. And they liked it.

As a guide, it's fun to introduce people to something they've never experienced before...especially if they're afraid for no good reason. There must have been six or eight people in our group who had never eaten a snail before. I managed to get all but one in our group to try one...and all responded with a yummy thumbs up. After a little coaching on fork technique, our two youngest travelers enjoyed their first (of several) escargots as well. ]]>
