France

Ask anyone who has visited France about their experience, and the first thing they will almost always say that they couldn’t do their trip much justice. This might seem like an overstatement, but it is actually true – it really is possible to spend years in France, and still not have explored enough. 

France really is the wonderland that many dreams about and read in books. As one of the world biggest tourist spots, France offers an unparalleled blend of picturesque natural ambience, cultural backgrounds, artistic treasure and urban experiences. The country’s natural gifts are much like the gems in a crown – beautiful on the own, and spectacular together.

France’s historical scene is one-of-a-kind. The country which introduced the very concept of revolution into the world, is indeed one-of-a-kind. Glimpses of its rich history can be scene everywhere you go – from the ports to the backstreets and from the antique stores to the museums. The urban scene is equally exciting – and shows in reality the very French lifestyle that people talk about in books and magazines elsewhere. The city of Paris is the epitome of glamour, showcasing the best and the brightest of everything France has to offer.

The only drawback about France is that once you have visited, you will never be able to sum up your experience in a singular sentence. You are not alone, though. The former French president Charles de Gaulle himself could never find a single word for a country that has over 200 types of cheese.
