I am a 71 year old professional historian who travels to England and France annually. My interests include all things English and French, books, art, good food and divine wine. I love finding the perfect ice cream in the Marais, visiting the Carnavalet in Paris, the Abby in London, and, the incomparable Hatfield House in Hatfield, UK. I recently visited York which now ranks as a definite favorite destination. Wonderful small, walkable city steeped in history and filled with wonderful restaurants, great book stores and delightful people.
