France

August 3rd, 2010 § 3 comments

We landed in Paris, spent the first couple of days sleeping irregularly and left on the fifth day for Bordeaux. Caught a train into Spain (pictures to come later) and then back into the south of France, Nice, for three days.

I ate some kind of baked good every day, macaroons, eclairs, pastries, baguette after baguette. French people will walk around eating baguettes for lunch, it’s not an outsider joke like I initially thought, they really love their bread. We’re talking lines of people out of every bakery and literally a baguette in every person’s hands as they trudge home from work. It was amazing.

There was a lot of smooching in Paris.

This is what a good creme brulee does to me.

The Lourve.

Venus de Milo, that historians believe is more likely to be Aphrodite.

Versailles. The colours killed me.

Nice, with it’s pebbled beaches. The water was warm and salty, you could float with minimal effort. Getting out proved difficult as the rocks dug into your feet, first and possibly last time I’m doing that. Give me sand caught in swimmers any day.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – Gahfuck you are beautiful!

    Your travel updates are awesome but are making me long for it to be mid 2011 so I can be there myself. Living vicariously through you in the mean time.

    The photo of you is gorgeous :)
