Gorges du Verdon – France

By Rosie | July 20, 2017

So this was one of my trips that didn’t go to plan, at all! Oops! We set off from our place at 10am, heading straight to the Gorges du Verdon but happened to stop at the Cascade de Sillans on the way. We loved it so much that we stayed for around 4 hours!! If…

Toulon Beach – France

By Rosie | July 2, 2017

Toulon beach is my favourite beach on the South coast of France. There is free parking (which is almost impossible to find at other beaches). Plus the car park is pretty huge and I always find a space. Parking may be a weird thing to first mention but when you visit the beach as much…

The Port de Toulon is the main harbour in Toulon. It is also the principal naval base of France, and has been used as a military harbour since the 15th century. The naval base is sectioned off and isn’t open to the public. In fact there are guards at the gates to make sure no…

Eglise Saint Louis de Toulon – France

By Rosie | June 30, 2017

There are several churches in Toulon but I visited two of them when I was there. I went to Cathedrale Notre-Dame-De-La-Seds de Toulon and Eglise Saint Louis. Both of these are situated in the centre of the old part of Toulon and both are very different in size and decorations. The second one that I visited was the…

Toulon Markets – France

By Rosie | June 27, 2017

I went to the Toulon Markets one Friday morning in Summer to see what produce & products they had for sale. The Toulon Markets are very similar to lots of other Provençal markets in that they sell fresh fruits, cheeses, flowers, clothes and other bits and bobs. I would recommend buying some fresh fruit for…

The Apple Store Cafe – Scorton, England

By Rosie | June 17, 2017

The Apple Store Cafe is a cute little place tucked away in the Lancashire countryside. It’s located near Scorton which is close to Preston in the North West of England. It’s a converted hot house which in the olden days would have been used to grow exotic fruits and vegetables. The Cafe is close to…

Photographs of the French Countryside

By Rosie | June 15, 2017

The French countryside is so different to English countryside. There are vineyards flowing over the hills as far as the eye can see. There are huge mountains, beautiful trees and wild flowers. It’s not what I’m used to but I love it all the same. The countryside in France is greener than I expected before…
