I did quite enjoy the days when one went for a beer at one’s local in Paris and woke up in Corsica. –Peter O’Toole
We had a Corsican wine that had great authority and a low price. It was a very Corsican wine and you could dilute it by half with water and still receive its message. –Ernest Hemingway
Join Us in France Travel Podcast is a web site and podcast hosted by Annie, and sometimes her long time friend Elyse. Annie is a French woman who had lived in the United States for many years, and decided to return to France where she lives now in Toulouse. Elyse is an American who lives in Toulouse, as well.
Recently, I did an interview–Fall in Love with Corsica, Episode 267–with Annie about my experiences in Upper Corsica, or Haute-Corse, in September, 2019. On the page, “Click to Play” and you will hear our discussion. She provides also a page with guest notes and an outline for easy reference.
Join Us in France has existed for many years. Over time, it has expanded its content to include many contributions by her friend Elyse, a scholar and historian, who talks about locations in France, other than Paris but not always, and their historical significance.

Most of the listeners are fond of Paris and many of the podcasts are devoted to it. However, more broadly, questions are asked and answered about families traveling to France, what to do and where to go for first time visitors, and sometimes something new is offered for those who travel frequently to France.

My favorite moments in the podcasts are when the attention is turned to the locations other than Paris. I like listening to the banter between Annie and Elyse, who are obviously long time friends. One has a sense of being a fly on the wall while listening to good friends talk about their favorite topic–France.
Certainly, Join Us in France should be on the top of any list for research about traveling to France.
