AMAZING FRANCE

I have to admit that I don’t enjoy France that much, but it definitely has beautiful places outside of the commercialised cities.

BORDEAUX

Took a bus from San Sebastian, Spain over to Bordeaux, France. I chose to come here as I previously work with someone from Bordeaux and I wanted to see her cute town. I absolutely loved it!

SEE

  • Monument Aux Girondins
  • Rue Notre Dame

EAT

  • Mythic Burger Bordeaux Portal (Not Vegan)

STAY

  • Hostel 20 Bordeaux – pretty far away from Bus Station but extremely convenient for public transportation.

 

 

PARIS

I had the most amazing time in Paris (all three times that I was there). Paris was the one city I grew up reading romantic novels about. It will always be the most romantic city for me.

SEE

  • Palais de Justice
  • Paris Pastry Class @ Patisserie a La Carte
  • French Sauce Cooking Class @ La Cuisine Paris
  • Montmatre, Sacre-coeur
  • Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Paris
  • Musee du Lourvre (obviously!) – I have never gone inside to visit.

  • E. Dehillerin (my fav place on earth – kitchen equipments!)

EAT

  • Le Relais Gascon (Not Vegan)
  • Rose Ice Cream @ Amorino

 

 

LYON

It was a very cute proper town, which I found out that many people moved there to work (second most popular city to move in France besides Paris). It was an interesting dynamic to see this town.

SEE

  • Opera De Lyon
  • Place des Terreaux
  • Get lost walking around to see cool art on buildings
  • Musee Miniature et Cinema (really amazing small things – worth to visit)

EAT

  • Brasserie Le Sud – Bocuse (not vegan)
  • Le Desjeuneur – really good breakfast with an amazing view (Vegetarian available)

STAY

  • Away Hostel & Coffee Shop – probably the best hostel I have ever stayed. Clean, Spacious, Modern. Wonderful common area with kitchen equipments.

 

MARSEILLE

This is where I left my heart, all these while, I always loved Cannes as it is amazingly beautiful. I have to say Marseille is probably the most beautiful city with beautiful people and sea views in France. I would go back to visit Marseille anytime.

SEE

  • Island Visit @ Vieux Port – you can just purchase the ticket at the port – must do!
  • La Vielle Charite
  • Walk around town getting lost and wondering through the town is simply beautiful graffiti (reminds me of Portugal).

Processed with MOLDIV

  • Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere, Marseille – must visit – amazing view of the city.

STAY

  • Vertigo Centre – amazing location, small kitchen but sufficient enough, lots of space to hang out.

After leaving Marseille with a heavy heart, I then went on to Turin, Italy.
