Book Description

France. It evokes images of crusty baguettes, country lanes, exciting cafes in Paris…and of course, that kid looking back on the bike holding his bread. France is so many things, all sensual, delightful, and to the traveler, from Strasbourg to Nice, Normandy to Marseille, it’s the ultimate destination. Maybe that’s why 75 million travelers visit France every year, more than any other country on earth.

In GoNOMAD’s new France Plane Reader, you’ll discover the parts of France that others may miss…taking a barge down the Canal du Midi, biking through the beautiful Loire Valley, staying in an apartment in Tours and cooking for yourself after you’ve visited the local market. Seeing rugged Corsica and Paris’ charming Marais neighborhood, here are stories that will take you there, and show you hundreds of photos.

These articles are by travelers like you—people who wanted to experience the best that France has to offer, and avoid the tourist traps. Feed your inner adventurer while skiing the French Alps, biking through the Burgundy countryside, or rolling through the streets of Paris on a Segway. Bringing the kids? Read up on family-friendly fun in Strasbourg and Dijon that your kids will love.

Each article is full of color photographs sure to inspire you. We’ve also included a list of every French tourist board around the world, to help you plan your journey to France.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond the guidebook... October 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This reader is for people who are looking for the real stories, told in descriptive, narrative format, of the people and history and places of France. It's not a guidebook with all the must-see checklists and restaurant/hotel listings, but rather a wonderful collection of stories from around the country, that really evoke a sense of place for the reader. As well as giving insight into places and experiences you may never have known about or considered before, and that many tourists never find . Bon chance!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Inspiring Journey Through France August 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I've always been enamored with France, having traveled to The Hexagon for over 20 years now and having purchased a home there8 years ago. One of the things that fascinates me about the country, aside from the obvious, is the reaction other travelers have to it and their experiences. This book captures those moments and made me fall in love with the place over and over again. J'adore!

5.0 out of 5 stars What will I do on my next trip to France? August 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
My question is this: what do I want to see on my next trip to France? Paris, Bordeaux (it's a UNESCO World Heritage Site now), my ancestral region in the Dordogne, medieval cities like Montpellier and Bergerac, the cathedral at Chartres, or maybe Corsica? My answer is, of course, all of these, and all of these are covered by GoNomad's France Plane Reader. The ebook is a compilation of vibrant travel essays by different travelers, and it features many photos to help tell their stories. It's true that I became aware of this ebook because one of my own essays was selected for it, but my essay aside, the other essays have transformed my dream itineraries already. A characteristic which makes this book stand out from the standard travel guides is, in fact, characters. Many of the writers have profiled some interesting people they've met: breadmakers, cheesemakers, inkeepers, and the man who holds old-school salons in his Paris home. This book is a fantastic guide to what you want to see in France, and what you haven't thought of yet!

5.0 out of 5 stars GoNomad's France Plane Reader is wonderful! August 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I read the France Plane Reader before I went to the country and now that I've been I can say the article in the book were spot on. I visited Paris, and the article in the book that inform readers about the city were very helpful. I learned so much about Paris that when I got there I felt as if I had been there a hundred times. Because the book is a compilation of different authors you really get a lot of different perspectives on each part of the country. You have to read it before you head to France!
