The vacation within a vacation

We have returned from the Cote D’azur. The journey that almost never happened turned out to be more than we ever could have hoped for, even before booking any part of the trip at all. In fact it became a vacation within a vacation. For a brief moment in a fantasy world, we are Parisians who took a weekend trip to the coast. It’s almost like a shot across Lake Michigan to New Buffalo, or not at all. I’ll let you be the judge. Armed with a multitude of new topics to blog about and no internet, I retreated to the comfort zone of journaling. There is so much material that I fear one post would be too random, too disjointed, and WAY to long. So instead I copy the the old school formula of one of my favorite writers, Charles Dickens, and I will post in episodes. As I finish them. You have the choice to save them all until they are complete, or read along post by post. I have no idea how long it will take me to cover all the stories of the Cote D’azur, but I will begin with episode one right now…


About Jim Herbert

I've been wanting to write my whole life. By age 45 it had amounted to nothing more than a storage locker of half full journals and a lot of unfulfilled dreams. Then Paris in the fall of 2011 happened. It was the catalyst I needed to consistently blog. At first I had a hard time hitting the publish button, but now two blog sites and over 300 posts later I'm hitting my stride. I'm also a budding speech writer. I've recently been heavily involved in the Chicago Storytelling scene and have also won the Chicago Toastmasters Area 66 International Speech Contest. Check out our website at for more details about the amazing things that are happening in my life. A book or two are nearing completion. With another Paris trip on tap for Easter of 2015 I can only imagine that there are Infinite Possibilities on the horizon!!!
