This week's #FriFotos theme is treats. The moment we saw this store, we knew we weren't leaving empty handed. The amount of award winning macaroons on display was drool worthy. They were so good in fact, that we went back a second time to Biscuiterie de Montmarte for more treats.
I'll be honest, I don't like GPS navigation systems. I'm a map person through & through. I love to study a map, absorb the alternative routes & remember it with my photographic memory. But while driving through the French alps, I couldn't help myself & set up the GPS purely so I can see the road ahead.
Watching the Tour de France on television & being there are two different things entirely. While following the tour around the French countryside is fun, you have no idea who is leading the stage until the rumble starts. The team cars speed past, the helicopters roar & for a brief second you see a bike.
Following the Tour de France can be done in many ways. The way most people are familiar with is seeing the thousands of campervans parked along the roadside cheering on the peleton. In some places there is simply not enough room to park, so you have to follow the crowd to where the action will be.
This week’s #FriFotos theme is flowers. Following the Tour de France across the countryside is beautiful, but when you get to the French Alps, the beauty takes your breathe away.
This weeks #FriFotos theme is Time/Clocks. I love train stations! The stress of an airport doesn’t exist. We had our EuroStar to catch back to London, but I dreamed of heading somewhere else.
Following the Tour de France can give you an interesting view on the traveling life. What happens on the road, stays on the road. But what if the road is covered with thousands of people in campervan’s?
