Cannes – up with the stars!


The Furlongs plan to spend a day in Cannes during our coming trip to Provence, France.


might be a bad idea. It’s the middle of the Cannes Film Festival. The place will be heaving. And expensive.

A balcony seat for a film costs about $1400. And there are two of us.

We are taking sneakers and jeans. And I’m not “doing” my nails! We only take cabin luggage – a habit formed many years ago during a period of heavy travelling. There’s a great joy in travelling light – and never having to wait for your luggage.

But it means evening gowns and dress suits are out.

So we’ll have to skip the movies.

And probably Cannes altogether!

Les sert bien! (Google translate from Serves them right!)

Bien fait pour toi !

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!

  1. Visit just before or just after the festival.

    That said, please give a full report.

    Cannes is one of my favourite cities: normal, moves on from day to day.
