There is a service that allows you to send a teddy bear to visit France for you....here's how it works.
Just select a tour on the website and send your stuffed friend to France.
Zabeille receives the guest, who shares the French life during about 3 weeks, visiting much more than the tour he/she has selected! Zabeille enjoys travelling in France, the guests come with her!
The travel agency takes photos of the guests during the trips, and shares them on the Facebook page to allow the owner following and commenting the stay!
When the guest is ready to come back home, Zabeille sends him with the photos and a souvenir gift for his/her owner…
There is also a blog on the website, as tool for French teachers and students: the class can send its mascot to discover the country and its culture, and comment the trip on the blog (we are aware of the 5 Cs learning method in the US)
