MY 10 TOP PLACES IN FRANCE (Part 1)

 

It was at 16 years old that I really discovered France and all the superb landscapes that it offered. At this age I was with a boyfriend a little bit older who could drive and then we decided one summer under my mum’s full supervision of course to do a Tour de France by car (we didn’t have bikes!). So we set off in a Citroën AX to explore our douce France (sweet France).

At this moment, I understood that travelling would be a part of my life.

FRENCH PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS

 

In the news over the past few months, or more recently in Australia, you have certainly noticed the importance that politics generates for French people, and with good reason…

2016 and 2017 have been full of rebounds in politics especially with the Presidential elections but also due to the multiple terrorist attacks that have impacted the hearts of French people even on the other side of the planet.

PARIS MON AMOUR

 

Ah Paris, seeing Paris again always makes me feel good, city that I’ve been desperately in love with for years. However it’s in Marseille where I grew up, second largest city in France in the South, capital of soccer, in eternal “foot-ballistic” competition with Paris, a strong rivalry that I have to admit sometimes becomes ridiculous. Parisians always envy our sun that they come to borrow in summer, grumbling about our occasional casualness and a bit about the “show-off” attitude.

IS THE FRENCH WOMAN FEMINIST?

 

The 8th of March was International Woman’s Day and this year I must tell you that I was in two minds about the idea of this day. Not that I am not for valuing women and being reminded that women are still victims of inequalities in our “modern” societies but rather because I am sad to notice that we need a day each year to remember that as women we are a part of this world. Shouldn’t we extend this day to the other 364 days of the year?

ELEGANCE OF THE HEART

 

“Without elegance of the heart, there is no elegance.” Yves Saint-Laurent

A recent event in my life made me think about a topic dear to my heart that I like to call the “elegance of the heart” and more precisely between women. Quickly, I sadly noticed that some women have the bad habit of judging each other, gossiping, telling lies, always wanting to be in competition with other women. Let me tell you something, IT IS JUST SO INELEGANT, a perfect way to “unlady” yourself.
