Wendell Rogers is a repeat Untourist who has joined us more than a half dozen times in Europe since 2011. He also happens to be a gifted photographer. He shared his images of Alsace from a recent trip, and here are more images of France. These come from his stay on the Provence Untour.
“We are constantly recommending Untours to anyone interested in travel,” he says. We hope you enjoy some of the colors, textures, and scenes Wendell brough back from his Provence Untour.
