My husband and I spent a long honeymoon driving around France the Spring of 1990. We had Frommer's France, the red Michelin Guide, and a great exchange rate. In retrospect, we traveled too far, too fast to get a real sense of what we were seeing.

One of the areas that stuck with us most strongly was Burgundy, the rivers and canals, the grey stone villages and ancient half-timbered houses, the wonderful food and wines. We had returned for a long weekend from Paris some years ago, but when the opportunity to take a trip without children cropped up, we decided yes, it's time.

After our first few days revisiting Paris, we planned to stay at a farmhouse near Semur-in-Auxois. This time, we're armed with the Blue Guide Burgundy, Signpost Guides' Burgundy and the Rhone Valley, the Green Guide to Burgundy and the Jura, the brand new Michelin Red Guide, and some great recommendations from Slow Travelers.
