CUNARD LINE See Your Local Agent Wranee What would you know of America...if you'd only seen New York?....By train...by autobus...this year, see France!...Take the route des Vosges, cool even in summer...forests, sky-high pastures, snow peaks on the horizon.... Or the route de Jura... gorges, cascades, tree-covered plateaus with vine yards smiling on the western slopes....Travel through Brittany...witness a pardon, understand the sea.... Slip down the Loire Valley and recreate the splen dor of Old France from those magnificent chateaux . . .. Make the rounds of the smart "cures" in Au vergne and know the secret of the chic Parisienne's verve....Visit the Gorges du Tarn...grottoes and rivers underground, the thrilling passage on a rushing stream between colossal cannon walls.... Cross the Alps, Napoleon-wise... passes, lost villages, stupendous glimpses valley-ward, lone churches, set so high their spires touch heaven.... Take the Pyrenees in your stride...glaciers and peaks, aerial resorts of super smartness all year 'round.... Skirt the Mediterranean, flitting from one gay beach to the next along the Grande or the Petite Cor niche...or on to Corsica in the blue Mediterranean.
