The Earful Tower: Paris

The Earful Tower: Figuring out France with guests who know best. 

Jun 13, 2019

Hello everyone!

I've just been to Giverny, where the famed Impressionist Claude Monet had his house and gardens. 

With my wife, Lina, by my side, I went to check out these gardens and I took my recorder with me. This episode is the whole day summed up in 30 minutes. 

There's picnics, cheese shops, walking, cycling, and exploring, all recorded on the scene.

Now, I left a little bit of French in there without translating - it's from the cheese shop in Vernon. The gist of the conversation is that she is talking about the Comté cheese and how it's aged 10 or 24 months. I went with the 24-month option. The rest is just small talk :)

If you've never been to Giverny I highly recommend it, this was my first time and I thought it was fantastic. 

In case you want to book the same trip I did in this episode,  it was the "Monet's Gardens Bike Tour" via Fat Tire Tours. You can find it here. They do the same tour without bicycles here.

Remember, you can get ten percent off this tour and all other Fat Tire tours in ten cities by entering the coupon code earful at the checkout, right before you pay. 

And if you're a more visual person, here's the Walk Show I did with tour guide Kit on Facebook. The rest of  the walk is for Patreon members only :)

Happy travelling!

Oh yes, and I spliced a whole song of music in here called Et Voila by Chris Haugen.
