French president, first lady want to cruise Route 66 March 30, 2010

Posted by Ron Warnick in People, Road trips.

Tucked into a story from Forbes.com about French President first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy’s visit to America this week is a snippet that caught my eye:

The couple went around the room to greet each of their guests and spent about 10 minutes chatting with those in attendance. Bruni-Sarkozy charmed a group of besotted women, telling them how much she loved America and how she and her husband dream of road-tripping on Route 66.

Bruni-Sarkozy and her husband, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, were in New York to launch a new program through her philanthropy, The Carla Bruni-Sarkozy Foundation.

If the couple decided to take a vacation soon on the Mother Road, it might result in quite a hubbub — but not at the level of Paul McCartney’s road trip in 2008.

Hi Ron,

Just wanted to say thank you for linking to my Carla Bruni-Sarkozy story on Forbes. It was quite neat to hear her mention Route 66!
