"Vagabonds in France" is a lighthearted book written by my husband (pen name Michael A. Barry) about our travel adventures in France, its amazing beauty, and all the humorous cultural differences and "what the hell" moments you'll get a kick out of. Find out how life threw a lemon at us, and we made it into lemonade. Putting all our stuff in storage, we left everything behind to experience an adventure of a lifetime, with no return date or home to come back to. Traveling for 9 weeks, we traveled from Florida (Tampa and Key West), to Portugal (Funchal, Madeira), to Spain (Malaga, Cartagena, and Barcelona), to the south of France (Antibes, Nice, Eze, St. Paul de Vence, Arles, Avignon), then a month in Paris. We climbed mountains, descended into the Paris Metro, dodged pickpockets, endured nasty weather and illness, and witnessed the flood of the century. Readers say they feel like they are right there with us on the journey, and laugh out loud. Cover design by Liesl Walsh, using her photograph of Rue de l'Abreuvoir in Montmartre, Paris, with Sacre Coeur in the distance. Original photo can be seen separately ("Cobblestone Street in Montmarte, Paris"). Images in this gallery are the illustrations in the book. The book is now available on Amazon in both paperback (black and white illustrations) and Kindle (color illustrations)! http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01NCUNSEK
