Wandering France from Nice to Paris
In 2005, I went to France with two friends. Our plan was to fly into Nice, rent a car, and make our way up to Paris over about 20 days. Following the "Rick Steves" way, we booked overnight accommodations for just the start and finish of the trip. There were a couple of nights we came close to sleeping in the car, but in the end it all worked out. I photographed every step of the way and kept a daily travel journal. There were upsides and downsides, and I am so grateful for the experience in all its parts. I consider it the ultimate road trip of my life.

For this book, I incorporated journal entries superimposed over maps of our route, along with my photographs rendered in 3-D form.  Because this book covers just a few of the places we visited in our travels, I plan to add other limited edition volumes in the future, so stay tuned for those.

This book is offered in a limited edition of 25 books.
