Ethan and Ruth Chickering of Concord spent April in Paris -- and in other French locales that followed the Saone and Rhone rivers through Burgundy and Provence. They took a moment to catch up on the community news in the Concord Transcript in front of the Pont du Gard, a Roman aqueduct built in the first century near Nimes. Other trip highlights included the fine museums in Paris, a ride on the TGV (high-speed train), wine tasting and a final stop in Nice on the French Riviera.
It doesn't matter if your time away is spent across the Bay or across the country -- remember to pack the Transcript to keep up with news of the community, and then show your neighbors where you have been.
