France

I am typing this up as I am still fighting jet lag but I know that I wanted to write about my France trip sooner than later. {edit: wow that jet lag was worse than I thought!  This post has been in my draft folder until now oops ]

My husband is french and we try to visit our family in France every couple of years.  This year’s trip is a little different as I stayed for my usual 2 weeks but my husband stayed 2 weeks more as he is working of the U of M for the last 2 weeks.  So for the next 2 weeks, we are a long distance couple, once again ha.  (2 weeks is nothing compared to the whole summer which was the case when we first started dating!  And grad school.. let’s just say we are not strangers to long distance!)


We spent the first week with his family in Fontcouverte, a little village about 6 hours south of Paris.  We visited places that I haven’t visited before.  We visited Cognac, Bordeaux, Quimper and the rest of the Bretagne region, and spent a day in Brugge, Belgium.


And of course, you can’t talk about France without talking about their food! My mother in law is an amazing cook and baker and my father in law always made sure my wine glass was never empty :p. My mother in law also made vegan dishes and desserts for me when the main course wasn’t vegan. ❤

We were in Paris the night of the final game of the Euro Cup and was able to swept up in the excitement of watching France play in the finals.  And excitement it was!  People on the streets, watching the game from a tv in a bar, cars not able to go through, people climbing light poles to see,  it was all exciting SAFE fun.  [ except they lost 😦 ]


I am so thankful to have the privilege of seeing the world like this.

What about you guys? Where are your favorite vacay spots?  Let me know in the comments!
