Win a copy of Vagabonds in France by Michael A Barry

“Vagabonds in France” is a light-hearted book about an unexpected travel adventure to France. When Michael and Lisa Barry lost their home in Florida, USA they put all their furniture in storage, and left everything behind to experience an adventure of a lifetime. With no mortgage or rent to pay, they left with no return date or home to go back to. They travelled in Europe and to the Côte d’Azur in the south of France (Antibes, Nice, Eze, St. Paul de Vence), to Provence (Arles, Avignon), then a month in Paris. The book describes the amazing beauty of France, along with all the humorous cultural differences and “what the hell” moments you’ll get a kick out of. Climb mountains, descend into the Paris Metro, dodge pickpockets, endure nasty weather and illness, and witness the flood of the century. Experience some wonderful and not-so-wonderful people. Chuckle as they live among the French and try to learn their ways and language.  Then make it back to an empty home they found online. Readers say they feel like they are right there with the couple on the journey, and laugh out loud, especially from the “Bathroom Reports”. The book has 75 photograph illustrations and is a great read.
