take me there: Villefranche-sur-Mer, France

Do you have a place that you daydream about?

On lousy, or hot and muggy, or tiring (or all of the above) days, I like to daydream about the little seaside french town of Villefranche-sur-Mer.

It was the first stop on our Mediterranean honeymoon cruise, which means we visited with about 3500 other cruise ship tourists. Yet, with a little exploring and a lot of walking, we still managed to find glimpses of day-to-day life on the quiet Sunday morning we visited.

You might also recognize Villefranche-sur-Mer from its role in several movies, including The Bourne Identity, To Catch a Thief, and (best of all) the home of Cary Grant's grandmother in An Affair to Remember.

In case you need a place to daydream about, you're welcome to borrow Villefranche-sur-Mer.
