Given my love of all things French, the following admission might come as a bit of a surprise. My command of the French language is really quite terrible!
The State Library of Victoria is known for bringing top exhibitions to Melbourne, and ‘Victor Hugo – Les Misérables From Page to Stage’ was no exception.
I’m in full trip planning mode now and I have been spending a fair bit of time thinking about Provence. We’ve not spent a great deal of time in the South of a France, certainly not nearly as much I’d like! Our longest stay was a number of years ago now when we stayed for a week within the walls of Avignon.
Sometimes, I amuse myself no end! I purchased a new, French inspired book recently and came up with the very original idea of reviewing it here on Distant Francophile.
Scott and I were in Melbourne’s CBD this morning and I couldn’t resist a little visit to the Chanel boutique.
Earlier this week, I was attracted, somewhat unsurprisingly, to a blog post on The Simply Luxurious Life titled ’10 Ways to Unearth Your Inner Francophile’. In the post, Shannon lists a variety of ways that you might be able to bring a little bit of the French way of living into your everyday life.
I realised when I was browsing through some photos the other day that I hadn’t yet shared our visit to a beautiful medieval village in France – Oingt.
I think I’ve made this admission before…we’ve never been to the top of the Eiffel Tower. We’ve been as far as the second level several times, but never to the top. I’m sure we will get there one day but in the meantime I’m also sure that the regular teasing we get about this fact will continue.
Following on from last week’s post, I thought I’d share this photo of the Arc de Triomphe, which Scott took on our very first visit to Paris. It is one of my favourites.
