Pour la France, et au-delà!

Paris-Bordeaux- Marseilles- Monte Carlo- Nice

We’ve been planning this trip since Dec 2011!

The tickets were booked in Jan. The hotels and chateau booking done by Feb and the itinerary fixed and tasks assigned. (I’m in charge of where to eat while in Paris and our itinerary for Monte Carlo and Nice :D).

I’m dyyying to try out all the cheese and wine and everything else french I can get my hands on (food-wise :P) once I’m there!

The town we’re staying at in Bordeaux is renowned for their foie gras.  The 13th century chateau we’re staying at while we’re there is nestled in a 450 hectare estate, half of which is untamed forest with foxes and wild hogs running around. The place has its own stables, a stream where we can play around in when we’re tired of the pool, and a vineyard, among other things.

I’m slightly worried about the chateau being so old and possibly haunted, so I’m gonna make sure I drink enough wine to not be worried about any other kind of spirits bothering me in the night! ;) Other than that, the only thing that slightly worries me is my complete lack of knowledge in french! I only know oui! and merci beaucoup! What will I do there without Google Translate?!

By the time you read this, I’ll be in France already. Hoping this little sojourn turns out to be as awesome as we imagine it to be.  See you on the other side of this holiday!

Au revoir!

  1. Wow, that sounds near perfect. Being someone who has been thinking about a trip to Europe since Summer 2011, I feel your excitement! Have a blast, take lots of pictures and bring us back lots of stories!

  2. I can’t tell you how envious I was when I called and you casually said “I’m in France right now, can I get back to you later?” Seriously. The crazy thing was another friend of mine was having a ball in Paris at the same time.
    Hope you had a great time and can’t wait for the pictures and lowdown :-)
    Did you get your hands on anything else that’s French, apart from the food obviously?

    • :D The pics of the paris part of the trip are up on FB.

      And no, unfortunately, I didn’t get my hands on anything else other than food. *sigh* I’m useless, I know!

Go on! Tell me what you think!
