Nearly one in four residents of Montpellier, France is a student, which makes for an eternally youthful city - even one that was founded in 985 AD. If Paris is for lovers, Montpellier is for students in love - and especially in summer.

For many of us, jotting down a list of dream travel destinations is an annual (if not monthly) pastime. Presumably, "Taking Root In Provence" author Anne-Marie Simons did the same thing while working for 30 years in the Washington D.C. area.
