It takes a village

Author- Faraz T Doan

It always take a village to get there. My first couple of years, and still after 6 years, of exploring France, I relied on my dear friends to help me figure things out! Without them, I would not have been able to put these pages together. So here is to Laurence, Clelia, Paul and Ramech who have shared so much with me over the years.

Paris Guide and Expert- Laurence Uebersfeld

Born and raised in Paris, Laurence grow up  in a family with an unmatched zest for education, travel and adventure. Laurence attended university of Paris and then traveled to  California to expand her academic adventure. Today, Laurence, is a successful documentary film maker, who travels the world and produces beautiful stories. Laurence has contributed her ideas, photographs, and several videos of her beloved Paris. I also work with Laurence to create a perfect stay in Paris at Chez Laurence at an incredible price.

Brittany Guide and Expert _ Ramech Potel

Her most formidable years of her youth were spent in Paris and Brittany, as an adult Ramech has lived her life in Renne and dedicated it to her sons as well as the Education system of France. I would have never been able to get to know the beautiful, vast, breathtaking, historic Brittany without the expert guide of Ramech. From Renne to Saint Malo and all the little villages all around Brittany I owe her a great deal.

Photography – Clelia Colledani, Paul Zievers, Laurence Uebersfeld

In addition to my own photographs, I am grateful to dearest friends Clelia Colledani and Paul Zievers for sharing their wonderful photos during our day trips and vacations together.

Clelia, a young Alsacien student from Strasbourg and a dear friend, has captured many beautiful and amazing  moments of our trip to Normandy and Brittany, via her iPhone. She has a definite talent!

Paul, a retired Doctor from Seattle, is a part time residence of beautiful Versailles. He is a true Francophone, an avid traveler and reader. Paul and I have explored Paris and Surroundings. He has also shared  many of his photos from exploring France.
