Todd & Gina's Excellent Adventure, Part #2

Canadian journalist Todd Babiak, his wife Gina and their two daughters, are spending a year in Provence. Todd is writing about it for newspapers back in Canada. On Sept. 20th I published his first column, the one about the stinky mattress. Here's his second, about Speedos and rules and France. Enjoy!


  1. I loved this story of the family at the pool. Rules and French people, precious.

  2. Beautifully written and very funny. Thanks!

  3. They're picture perfect! What a great year to have with a family. Can't wait to read all about it.

  4. so funny...we both write from afar
    except at this moment I am actually in Paris
    maybe fantasy is better ?
    I wish I didn't have to post over here :(
    Carolg :)

  5. This is hysterical! Love it. Thanks for sharing. And, can't wait to read what's next.

    Have a wonderful weekend! Lylah

  6. Loved this post and can really relate after having lived in france with our kids ten years ago. Similar speedo experience. I love how he says that they love their rules, but only choose to enforce certain ones.
    Will definitely keep reading.
