Daily Travel Inspiration – France

Autumn in the valley of Gourette, originally uploaded by B℮n.

Gourette, Aquitaine, France.

Gourette is a winter sports resort in the French Pyrenees. Historically this area was known as Aquitaine. I picked this location today because I’m currently reading Alison Weir’s biography of Eleanor of Aquitaine. In her life she married two European kings, mothered three kings and two queens and took to the crusade. She traveled all across Europe, Asia and even parts of Africa.

I'm Julie, I love to travel, I'm very hyper and I like to "hype" things and from that, TravelHyper was born. I'm a Missouri native and I cover St. Louis travel ideas as well as my own travels. I also like to focus on places I want to visit and budget travel ideas by creating trip plans. There's so much world out there and I hope you'll find that it's worth seeing and that vacation doesn't have to be out of reach to you.
