I'm thinking about France today, probably because the sky is a brilliant blue and the weather is finally chilly, the way fall is supposed to be, and Carla Bruni is singing L'Amoureuse in my ear. Where oh where is my chocolate croissant? And the waiter with my café au lait?
Shoot. I'll just have to imagine. Tant pis.
I guess I'll just have to stare at the Air France poster hanging on my office wall and pretend. That's it above. I bought it from the guy who sells old books out of the back of his van at the Sunday flea market in Clermont Ferrand, and it's one of my favorite souvenirs of our French life.
I love how the New York sky scraper stands shoulder to shoulder with the Eiffel Tower, and that they're flying their flags like twins.
Are you a fan of vintage travel posters too?
This one's nice.
I love the style. The bright colors.
Even the lettering.
Hey, that's Chamonix, the home of one of our very first road trips in France! Where we learned that French inns serve breakfast on china, no matter if you have little Americans used to plastic and a 9 month old baby who likes to grab things.
Once we learned to negotiate breakfast, we had a marvelous time!
Back to travel posters...
Have a good Monday, y'all!
