Two In France originated from a desire to record the French travel experiences of Ruth, a French expat, and Ricki, an Australian national. Married 25 years and living in Australia, Ruth and Ricki spend several weeks each year touring and visiting family in France. They find communicating through this medium more creative and less boring than sharing slide shows back home. Two In France neither takes itself too seriously nor pretends to offer travel advice. It is purely and simply a record of a couple's experiences in France. Nothing more and nothing less. If people enjoy it, so be it.
I am a proud French woman, stridently loyal to my heritage. Raised in France, Israel and Tahiti, family circumstances brought me to Australia, where I enjoy dual French and Australian citizenship. My early travels have taken me to many countries and have opened my eyes and heart to the passion of discovering the world and its people. I still work full-time as a nurse and look forward to returning to my homeland each year. It fills my heart with indescribable joy and a sense of belonging.
The penalty for marrying a French woman is that I get to spend several weeks a year in France. France is one of my favourite destinations and, as a retired Psychologist, I have plenty of time to develop itineraries to my favourite restaurants and indulge in my preferred pastime of wine tasting. I suffer from chronic ABC syndrome brought on by constant visits to concerts, churches and cemeteries. I am primarily the navigator and chauffeur, and as I speak little French, I always travel with an interpreter.
