Provence to Perigord

Monday, 5 May 2008 | Views [1815]

The French countryside in spring is an beautifully lush place to spend some time. We really couldn't have picked a better time to do a road trip. It was sunny, warm and still when we set out from Cannes, and that was the way it stayed for the next 10 ... Read more >

Happy New Year! I would like to point out that I am still in my mid-twenties, and the same can no longer be said for my 27 year old husband (although he argues otherwise!) We've finally got a bit of a routine going in France. It's wonderful to have ... Read more >

It's nice in Nice

Tuesday, 23 Oct 2007 | Views [849]

To tell the truth, I can't remember any of the plane trip to get here. All I remember is arriving at Nice airport, completely wiped out and exhausted from travelling round England with shingles. And we had yet to deal with the daunting tasks of a) getting ... Read more >

Paris!

What a marvellous time! What a fantastic city! After Asia, how European! How expensive!! So good thing we heard about couch surfing. That's where you email strangers on the couch surfing website and ask to sleep on their couch for free. The first guy ... Read more >
