July 9 - 25, 2005

This trip was easily one of my favorites and most likely will retain that standing until I die. We were fortuntate to be able to go over there in July and witness Lance Armstrong's historic 6th Tour de France victory - but even without that, it would still have been incredible. The French Riviera, Provence, the food, the wine, the Pyrenees, the food, the Alps, the Swiss, the friendly people... did I mention the food? The trip was brilliantly planned and executed by yours truly and I look forward to writing about here in the future.
