France with Véro

Taking care of some personal business in beautiful Lille, northern France, over the next couple of days.

Jeanne la cane and I arrived into town mid-day, after a swift, 1-hour TGV ride from Paris.

This is December 2020, and I can't believe how festive Lille’s old town (“Le Vieux Lille,”) feels, holiday lights highlighting its magnificent façades.

Join me on a “Happy New Year from France!” stroll on Thursday and get to know the endearing northern city I used to call home.

Facebook Live - Thursday December 31 - 5:00pm CET - 8:00am PST - 11:00am EST

Looking for a great day (or weekend) trip from Paris that’s (still) off the beaten tourist path? Bienvenue à Lille!

So after evacuating to Grand Island, they decided to stay in the land of aunts, uncles and cousins." Voilà, now it's up to you. They are open for pick up or delivery, even cocktails.
