On Sunday evening we came home from Montpellier, France, to 10 degrees, everyday worries, bills to pay and my very own zoo garden, as my father puts it. 😉
As a francophile, I found France as delightful as ever, we had 16-20 degrees, there was lots of pastry to be tried, many rosé wine to taste and then there was the general “joie de vivre” the French are so well-known for. 😉
We walked around the old town holding hands, stopped for “un café alongé”, “une coupe de champagne”, a weissbier or a bite. We had “moules frittes”, cheese and ham platter, quiche and salad and lots of chocolate mousse. 😉
We went to a couple of exhibitions, too- photography by Hélène Hoppenot and modern art at Musée Fabre, lovely both of them.
A sign of early summer. 😉
Enchanting architecture in the old town, I always find myself dreaming of living in an old house right in the middle of a bustling medieval city.
Made a couple of friends, too, cats and dogs alike.
Majestic pine trees, so pretty!
On the last day we went to the beach La Plage Carnon, where we got a bit of colour on our cheeks and some wind in our hair. Not summer yet, but lovely none the less.
On our way back to Oslo we had a couple of hours in Paris and so we spent them drinking coffee with this cutie, my cousin Liliana, who´s studying political sciences in France. 😉
