The Dordogne Valley is arguably one of the most beautiful places to visit in France and one that’s very easily overlooked in favour of more popular parts of France. The thing is, even for me, who lives in the UK, the Dordogne Valley is one French region we’d overlooked. That said, until last summer when … Continue Reading

At least once a year, we gather round up our group of friends and head off somewhere on a bit of an adventure! This time we decided to head to the Roman city of Nimes… in France, believe it or not. (The year before was Berlin and the first one for this year is South … Continue Reading

* Okay, fine – we were actually in Bordeaux for more than 24 hours but this is over the last 24 hours we had in Bordeaux before heading for the airport so that title still counts. 😁😄 After that delicious lunch, we decided to spend the rest of the evening exploring the pretty streets of … Continue Reading

Everybody likes a treat now and then… me included! The thing I like most about treats is that they usually involve something special… something you have always wanted to do, stay, eat or try. On my lookout for nifty hotels, I came across Hotel Petit Moulin in Paris. I immediately fell in love with it! … Continue Reading

After hiking and exploring Mont Ventoux yesterday, today was going to be a little more chilled. Especially as the weather turned a little grey, which made for the perfect excuse to seek shelter indoors and sip on some local wines. Before that though, I was still determined to get back to Séguret after our fleeting little visit … Continue Reading

Our last trip to Nimes was one of those perfect friend’s holidays.

We managed … Continue Reading

For quite some time now, I’ve been intrigued by the idea of going on a day trip to France. Predominantly because everyone I knew who’d been raved about how cheap the wines once you crossed over on the ferry but partly because I kinda wanted those bragging right “Oh, I just popped over to France … Continue Reading

A visit to Paris, whether it’s for the first, second or fifteenth time will most likely include sites like The Eiffel Tower, The Louvre and Notre Dame Cathedral.

By the point we arrived in Issigeac, we’d come to realise (and happily accept) that France’s Dordogne valley is filled with some of the most pictures villages, cities and towns in all the land. We’re talking about places that look like you’re stepping into a French fairytale and is the idea of France that we … Continue Reading

Paris has some of Europe’s most mouthwatering restaurants and not just because of the food (though, of course, that is a huge part of it). These Parisian restaurants with views are some of the very best spots in Paris to sit back, relax and enjoy some of the best views across this most picturesque of … Continue Reading

Arriving in the Dordogne Valley, I had no idea what to expect. We’d flown in from London after almost 2 months of travelling and this time, I’d left most of the planning to Lloyd. I was knackered upon arrival in Brive and pretty much slept all of the way from the airport till we got to … Continue Reading

Brittany is one of the most beautiful places in France to visit. From quaint villages, and beautiful countryside to a stunning coastline; Brittany has it something for everyone.

After a little lay in (after visiting Séguret yesterday), we left Mazan around 9:30 am on our last day exploring Provence. Even though it was our last day, I still planned to make it count with a few spots I’d been itching to see since we arrived. With a big breakfast to start my day right … Continue Reading
