Travelling Solo in France as a Woman of a Certain Age


Join me as I showcase Gail Schilling

TUESDAY, April 6th, 2021

12:30 EST/9:30 am Pacific/6:30 pm Paris/5:30 London  


  ($22.50 CAD** for Non-annual members)

Gail Thorell Schilling, author of Do Not Go Gentle, Go to Paris shares her story about taking a trip

she postponed for 40 years, to travel on her own all over France.

The dynamics of traveling solo held special challenges, as well as exciting opportunities,

that Gail says she might not have experienced otherwise.

It also helped her reframe “aging” and the power of being a Woman of a Certain Age!

You can also buy Gail’s Book HERE!

    I enjoy French fare – but as a consumer rather than a creator!!!

      Me too… I like to cook once in a while and would give myself at C in that…but consumer, I get an A++
      Best to you Gretchen! Diana

    Just wanted to let you know how very much I enjoyed your interview with Jane Webster. I have started following her on Instagram:
    #chateauliferesidency and look forward to winning the lottery and spending 3-4 months at her Chateau immersing myself in French life! I’m looking forward to the interview with Gail Schilling too. Thanks Diana!

    • Diana Bishop on March 22, 2021 at 12:09 pm

      Yes, following Jane is so much fun. She always has so much going on, and we will be collaborating more and more together. Great to hear from you as always. Diana
