TRAVELER PROFILE: CHIP & NATALIE
It’s been a fun and relaxin’ past couple of weeks in France. Much of the merriment was due to the good company.
For instance, Chip & Natalie have been a barrel of good times. We shovel dirt together, and then share good meals and bottles of wine. And they even laugh at my jokes!
