Here are a few of my faves that you haven’t seen before from Toulouse, Marseille and more!
Toulouse is a gorgeous city although it was extremely windy when we were there. These paintings on the ceiling caught Tom’s eye.
This is the Palais des Papes in Avignon, France where we stopped for a few hours on the way to Toulouse.
Since we rented a house, it was easier some nights to stay in and cook. The parents were the cooks and managed to get everything done even though they weren’t speaking the same language. And they actually had fun in the process! In the pic above, we had kabobs, pasta, salad with fresh tomatoes, and of course, local wine and bread. A good night all around!
Trying new pastries in France never gets old for me. And to be completely honest, we sampled our fair share in Provence. For Tom and Dagny’s birthday, both of which are in September, we celebrated with delectable pastries like the one above from Riederer. The patisseries are some of the most extravagant (and tasty) I’ve seen and are worth the 4-5 euros/each.
This view overlooking the city of Marseille, France is from Notre Dame de la Garde which sits atop a huge hill. You can see the expansive city (2nd largest in France in terms of population and area) and sprawling blue sea. Beautiful everywhere you look…
