France

France Eiffel Tower by Tristan Nitot - WikipediaIn starting my exploration of France, I discovered that France and its worldwide territories encompass the largest economic zone in the world - with many islands and enclaves.

This expanse of land makes France rich with history, culture and amazing natural wonders.

I started my journey in the Alps region but planning to visit all the regions in the coming years.
