Abstract In this program, everyday people talk about things they like to do on vacation, such as windsurfing, wine-tasting, and - naturellement! - buying souvenirs! The video then moves off the beaten path to the Aiguilles Rouges nature reserve in the Préalpes Françaises, where visitors can learn firsthand about the region's animals and plants, and to the "Eldorado of the Pyrenees" to pan for gold on the Salat River with a professional prospector.
