Our friends at Boots 'N' All Travel Blog have compiled a great list of "7 Secrets of the South of France" and we felt we had to comment. AmeriSpan offers a multitude of Study French in France programs, but we think our southern locations have a certain "je ne c'est quoi." Here's an excerpt of the article that we think sums them up quite nicely:
"When most of us think of the South of France we tend to picture
yachts in Cannes and beachfront hotels that we’ll never be able to
afford, but that’s only one part of the picture.."

As you have likely heard on the news, there have been many costly and headache-triggering complications for travelers wishing to fly into, out of, and within Europe this past week due to bothersome volcanic ash floating downwind from the active Eyjafjallajökull volcano in Iceland and obstructing international airspace. Every day we have been hearing stories of postponed flights, nervous airlines, and exasperated travelers.
Luckily, it was reported today that there seems to be a light at the end of this tunnel!
While the volcano, according to experts, shows little sign of letting up, it would seem that its effects are starting to slow for the time being. It was reported this morning in England that the volcanic ash is "no
longer rising to a height where it would endanger large commercial aircrafts," and that airlines throughout Northern Europe anticipate returning to a normal flight schedule by this Friday. Currently, some airports are opening back up to the public, and until further notice, Heathrow Airport in London will be closed until tomorrow, pending test flight results**
Flights to and from Spain and some other parts of Southern Europe have been unaffected by the ash, and an AmeriSpan staff member landed safely in Madrid on Saturday!
AmeriSpan will post another update later in the week.
Edit: British officials have just reported that UK airspace is to reopen at 10 p.m. (5 p.m. ET)
