On the Road: Summer 2013 – Autrans, France

11 Aug

It’s that time of the year again when France pretty much comes to a screeching halt and everyone hits the road for vacation, including us. This year, with the baby only seven weeks away we decided to keep our summer vacation close to home. We spent June painting the little lady’s room and July welcoming my parents for a visit. This month we’ve hit the road for a two week jaunt around France. The first stop: the ski resort and cute French village of Autrans (population 1,537) to visit my husband’s aunt and uncle at their summer abode.
