Planning a trip to France?
Listen to Louise from Loulabelle chat with her father about a couple of places that are still on her wish list for future visits,
the Canal Saint Martin and Mont Saint Michel. In this month’s podcast they also talk about his favourite region of France,
his fave foods and his love of French music which is how his Francophile passion started.

Louise says, “My fascination with France has been inherited from my darling Dad. I have been so very fortunate to travel to Paris and regional France with Papa, and still learn French with him now, home in Australia. An afternoon in the garden together at his house, with French music in the background and lovely chats en français is my idea of a weekend well spent. Our shared love of France has been a wonderful way for us to remain close as we grow through life.

On one holiday in Paris, I was thrilled to share an evening with Papa at a jazz club in which my beautiful childhood friend Wendy Lee Taylor was performing. Wendy invited Papa up on stage as he is quite a gifted musician. Being in a jazz club in Paris and seeing my dad and my lovely friend on stage together is a lifetime memory I will always cherish!”

Louise Prichard

After countless experiences in France over many years, Louise Prichard created the podcast Loulabelle's FrancoFiles to share her French memories with FrancoFilers in Australia, France and around the world. Lou’s French obsession was inherited from her parents, with her dear Papa joining in on the podcast as a guest in one episode! She learnt French at school and as an adult, hoping she would get there eventually. Then one day an offer came to accompany a friend on her work trip to Paris and Lou’s love affair with France formally began!
