Baguettes, cheese and french champagne. It really needs no further explanation but that wouldn’t make for the most exciting post I suppose. With Bastille Day just gone our little city held its annual French Festival along the river. Not going to lie I got a little “fan girl” regarding have a bit of France here at home after 7 months having passed since my return from living in Paris. To hear the accent and eat a proper baguette filled my little heart with happiness. Any place where you can eat an enormous baguette as you walk through a market with no judgement is a happy place to me.


Oh and to the event organisers who were running the competition to win a trip to France. Well Tim and I bought two tickets and you haven’t called me yet, which is cool, I know you’re probably busy and have forgotten to tell us we won. But we’re ready to go, our passports are packed and you can contact me in the comments below. It’s completely okay, I forgive you for your tardiness and look forward to our trip nonetheless 🙂

    Oh wow! This looks like so much fun! I love little festivals (especially if they have a theme and involve food haha). It looks like you had a great time!

  2. I never really got the point of celebrating Bastille Day as I don’t have any connection to France but wine? bread? cheese? I will accept this.

    The landing page for your blog is so unusual and I love it! Bastille Day is something I only became aware of through blogging, but it sure does sound like a lot of fun 🙂
