Rhône-Alpes, France

Although we’ve passed through the Rhône-Alpes on several occasions, we’ve yet to write about it extensively.

On our very first visit to France (which was about as opposite to our current slow-travel philosophy as possible) we spent two nights in Lyon. At that time, we were not the foodies we are today, and had no idea of the culinary delights that make Lyon famous. We long to return and taste our way through Lyon’s gastronomy, righting that early culinary wrong.

With Andrew’s penchant for finding twisty mountain roads, we have no doubt our motorhome will be climbing its way up into the French Alps so we can discover more of this incredible landscape.

Winter Ski Holiday

Winter Ski Holiday (via wiki)

While many of us are wondering what happened to summer this year, the folks at Club Med are already gearing up for the winter holiday season. They’ve sponsored this great list of top 10 winter destinations for those of you who love the snow and those who want to escape it.

The other, of course, is to enjoy some winter sports like skiing or snowboarding, while hopefully enjoying some sunshine at the same time. Thus, in compiling this list of the top ten winter holiday destinations for 2011/12, we have taken both of these motivations into consideration. We begin with some great places to enjoy all inclusive ski holidays, and finish with some suggestions for indulging ourselves in the balmy climates of foreign islands.
