Now, I finally have a companion memory to add to the list - a trip to the South of France. 

For all whose thoughts in reading these words are, “Gimmee a break! Everyone wants to go to the South of France, many of us have, and sure it was beautiful, but..."

But ranking any one of the many barge and cozy gite experiences - even a luxury Paris hotel stay - as being outstanding would be about as believable as comparing one baker’s croissants to another. Tasty. Worth recommending. But croissants, as with all parts and products of France, are sure to get a variable vote according to each individual’s personal tastes.

One longs to do it again, and although one mourns - in the case of the Concorde - the inability to do it again, one cherishes the warm memory of once having had the experience.
