Charlie Gay has visited France 17 times in the last 35 years, including a 10-month stay in Paris two years ago. He is a weekly newspaper journalist who loves to write about France and take photos there. He got the idea for "Preparing for a Trip to France" after his second trip there in 1983. He believed he could help others planning a trip by giving them all kinds of tips to avoid the problems he had had and the mistakes he'd made as a clueless traveler. He's taken about 9,000 photos all over France and uses many of them in the class to show people the beauty and diversity of the country and give them some ideas about where they can go. He gladly helps his friends and friends of friends and class members plan their trips for no charge because he enjoys sharing the land he loves.
