A little, not so French culture.

One thing I absolutely love about this area is there is so much to do, as I’ve said in the past we have mountains, beaches, the city,  museums, shopping and concert halls you name it – we’ve got it. But every now and then, we veer off the ‘French’ way of life and become just a little bit “Middle Eastern”!

DAY 109 (To FB or not to FB, that is the question!)

As I start writing this, I would love to make it sound witty and funny but I’ve a feeling it’ll just come out as it is in my brain…which is normally a little scrambled so that’s probably the way it will be written!! I, like so many hundreds of thousands of people had a FB […]
