Bonjour, Salut I'm back! Hope you fab-folk are doing great, I must say I have missed ya'll and my daily ramblings. Ever so thankful for all the fab Guest Blogging that took place in my absence and hope that you enjoyed what these peeps had to say.
Here is an overview of what went on during mes vacances. I have tried to capture all the best bits!
First Stop: Tours. Time Spent: 1 Soir.
Tours is located in Central France and is a ridiculously beautiful place. It's the Main City in the Loire Valley, as you can imagine the Wine is amazing as is the food. This was my first time in Tours, we arrived at 9pm and left at 7am, not long but long enough to soak up the atmosphere, take a walk around and best of all; Eat!
Next Stop: Bayonne. Time Spent: 3 Soirs
After what seemed like a million hours we finally arrived at my Grandma's house in Bayonne. This fab little town in the Basque Region is a yearly destination for me and the fam. My sister and her kids were there too for these three nights. If you were wondering what this ridic red and white get up is all about, I can tell you that it is aid of the Fête de Bayonne a yearly festival inspired by the Spanish Pampelune festivals.
Next Stop: San Sebastian. Time Spent: 2 soir.
San Sebastian is a City located in Northern Spain. I had only ever briefly visited this fab-place once or twice but never had the chance to go exploring. I headed over to meet up with my man who was coming over from Barcelona and fell head-over-heels with its gorgeousness! I love Tapas and this city was crawling with it! The beaches were amaze as was the architecture. Because I am used to my Bayonne trips it was really fun to have a few days away and get to experience more of the Basque Culture... OMG... Love, love, love.
Don't Call it a Comeback! Next: Bayonne. Time Spent: 9 soir.
After our brief Spanish affair, me and the homme set on off back to Bayonne. For the remainder of the trip I stayed pretty much put, flittering between Bayonne, Biarritz and Anglet; Three towns that make up the BAB region.
Bayonne: a traditional town, fab for walking around and drinking coffee, my fave spot is just next to the cathedral. It is also named the Chocolate Capital in France, so fun!
Anglet: Where all the fab beaches are at. Amazingly humongous waves that I have learnt to battle over the years... Don't test me amateurs!
Biarritz: Not so fun on the beach front, their main plage is pretty weak and overcrowded, fun for people watching though. This area is the glitzy, flash part in the region, think amaze designer boutiques, cakes and coffee and about the ONLY decent area to go out in the evening. Fab for late night strolls too... Très chic!
In The House: Gran · Mum · Dad · Me · Boyf · Bro Seb · Bro John.
Final Stop: Amiens. Time Spent: 1 soir.
This Final stop off was not so fun, if you have never been to Amiens, then don't bother.
