Pasta in Piacenza – Italy

November 30, 2017

My brother lives in Austria and flights from Marseille to anywhere close to him costs around €400. So, rather than paying all that money for my husband and I to fly there, we drove. We drove through Italy and arrived in Austria in the evening after spending the day in the car. To break up…

Pont du Gard – France

November 28, 2017

Pont du Gard! What a beauty! My husband and I have wanted to visit this bridge for several years now and finally got round to it when a friend was visiting us for the weekend. It’s a shame we didn’t come in Summer to enjoy it in the heat and splash around in the water.…

New Tattoo

November 26, 2017

I have always loved tattoos. I used to watch Miami Ink on repeat when I was a teenager, dreaming about being tattooed from head to toe. When I was at University, I contemplated several times getting a tattoo but I am glad I never went through with it. At one point, I wanted a barcode…

St Victoire – France

November 9, 2017

I have lived in Provence for around 5 years now and have always wanted to go up to the top of the famous St Victoire. I have had picnics around the bottom several times and once made it up to the refuge. But never to the top – until now! The St Victoire is a…

Tarragona – Spain

November 7, 2017

I went to Spain to spend a weekend at Port Aventura with some friends. We stayed in Salou, which I wouldn’t recommend as it was a horrible tourist spot with tacky souvenirs and gross English people! But anyway, we went to Cadaques on the Friday for a couple of hours. Spent Saturday at Port Aventura. And…

Cadaqués – Spain

October 31, 2017

Cadaqués is a beautiful town on the North East coast of Spain. It is further North than Barcelona and is actually really close to the French border. We stopped here for a couple of hours on our way to Salou for a weekend in Port Aventura. Cadaqués is famous for being where Salvador Dali was…

Coulée Verte René-Dumont, Paris – France

October 30, 2017

After visiting Rue Cremieux, I wandered around the neighbouring areas without a destination in mind. I stumbled across the Coulée Verte René-Dumont which is an elevated linear park situated on an old railway. It is sometimes known as the “Promenade Plantée” too. The park stretches 4.7km over Paris with views over the Parisian buildings and life…

Rue Cremieux, Paris

October 29, 2017

Rue Cremieux (Crémieux in French) is Paris’ version of London’s Notting Hill. The houses on Rue Cremieux are very cute, bright, colourful and full of fun! Each house has its own personality and charm. It’s a lovely little road to walk down, situated next to Gare de Lyon. It’s very tucked away and hard to…

Disneyland Paris – France

October 27, 2017

I’m not a huge Disney fan. I mean I watched the films when I was younger but I’m not obsessed like it seems everybody else is. But when we were in Paris for the weekend, we decided we should go. We have already seen a lot of Paris, but had never been to Disneyland, so…

An afternoon in Paris – France

October 24, 2017

I went to Paris for a long weekend with my husband to see one of our friends before the big move to the USA. I haven’t seen him in over a year so it was really nice to spend some time with him again after so long! We lived in Paris around 5 years ago…

Me too

October 16, 2017

So, as you all have probably heard, yet another bloke in the entertainment business has been busted for being a sexist dick-face abusing his power. I don’t understand how this kind of bullshit still goes on, but I also don’t understand how so many people are surprised. Sexual harassment, assault and abuse happen day in,…

Blackpool – England

October 16, 2017

Blackpool is a funny old place. I have some great memories from here. I used to come to the Blackpool Pleasure Beach theme park when I was at high school with friends. I came on a couple of nights out here and even had my hen do evening here. So its a good place to…

Blackwell House, Lake District – England

October 11, 2017

I went home in September (which you might have seen in my September Highlights post) for a week to say goodbye to my grandma and parents before we leave for Miami. We don’t know exactly when we will be leaving, but wanted to go back to say goodbye while we have time. My parents and…

Villefranche-sur-Mer – France

October 11, 2017

Villefranche-sur-Mer is a beautiful seaside town located just next to Eze (see blog post here). It’s between Nice & Monaco on the French Riviera and the buildings are beautiful and bright! I drove here from Eze and parked down at the port. I knew that Villefranche-sur-Mer was famous for its beautiful seafront with bright buildings,…

Eze, France

October 10, 2017

Eze is a stunning old hilltop town situated between Nice and Monaco on the South East coast of France. I came here for a little day trip on my own in September and I have no idea why it has taken me 5 years of living in Provence to come here! The town is only…

Portugal Beaches

October 3, 2017

We went to several Portugal beaches whilst on holiday. Both me and my husband Jeremie love the beach. We love to lie in the sun, snorkel, swim, play bat & ball. Generally have lots of the fun at the beach! We went to Manta Rota & Altura mostly as they were close to where we…

Cacela Velha, Portugal

October 2, 2017

Cacela Velha (pronounced Cass-ella-Veyya) is a beautiful tiny fishing village in the Algarve region of Portugal. It is so tiny, it almost doesn’t seem real. Cacela Velha is located on the top of a hill with fantastic views over the Atlantic Ocean. The village itself doesn’t have many buildings, but it does have a cute church,…

Tavira, Portugal

September 27, 2017

Tavira is a beautiful old city in the Algarve region of Portugal. It seems a lot less touristy than some of the other places we visited on our weeks holiday. The buildings are more ruined and dilapidated, with paint peeling off – which I love! I didn’t know what to expect when coming here and…

Vila Real de Santo António, Portugal

September 26, 2017

Vila Real de Santo António is a small city in Portugal’s Algarve region. It’s in the south of Portugal, on the Portugal/Spain border. We came here for an afternoon to wander the streets.

1 week in Miami

September 20, 2017

MIAMI!! It’s never particularly been on my list of destinations I dream about visiting. But as we are moving there in a couple of months for my husband’s work, we thought it would be best to visit before hand. I spent a lot of my time visiting the different areas of Miami and trying to…

3 days exploring Dijon

September 12, 2017

My husband came to Dijon for 3 days of work, so I decided to come with him. Usually on work placements he is alone for the journey there and back, but also in the evenings and for dinner etc. So, I thought this time I would come along to keep him company but also so…

Gorges du Verdon – Take Two

September 4, 2017

We came back to the Gorges du Verdon and I am so glad that we did! It was worth the drive to be able to go on a boat down the beautiful gorges. It was a stunning hot day in July when we went. It was super busy, but I think that added to the…

Bussana Vecchia, Italy

September 1, 2017

I came to Bussana Vecchia after spending a night in San Remo (read my blog post here..). Bussana Vecchia is a small hippy/arty commune in the West of Italy with a rather interesting history. I won’t give you a long history lesson, but here is a quick overview. Basically there was an earth quake in…

San Remo, Italy

August 25, 2017

San Remo is a town situated just over the French/Italian border (on the Italian side). It’s a popular tourist destination on the beautiful Italian Riviera. I decided to go here on a bit of a whim. I was meant to go for a long weekend with my girlfriends earlier this year but something came up…

Provence Lavender and Sunflower Fields – France

July 26, 2017

The best time to see the famous Provence lavender fields is from late June to mid August. Although this does depend on where you go, the weather that year & when they harvest the lavender. There are also several lavender festivals throughout Provence in the summer months. They sell lavender ice creams, lavender honey and…
