Subject: Re: Re: Provence/Paris-Solo Traveler- Help!
I drove around most of France, including Provence, solo. I didn't any problem. When you are off the highways, keep an eye on your gas supply - there weren't a lot of stations (for me anyway - I live in the Chicago area and am used to a gas station on nearly every corner.)

The advantage to driving instead of taking a tour, is that you can follow suggestions of locals on what to see and leave places that turn out to be less interesting.
