We thought it would be quite nice to launch our new blog with a post about our Honeymoon. For us it just had to be going back to the place where it all started 5 years ago….France! We wanted to see more of that stunning country so we decided to travel the full length of it from South to North, and spread our time out in 2 different Villas in the Aquitaine Region followed by some time at my Dad’s house in the Loire Valley.
Thankfully the weather was glorious so we took full advantage of the pools at our fabulous villas and undertook our honeymoon mission – to chill out! We even managed to conquer the supermarkets with limited French – wine, bread & cheese were all we needed to get by!
We took tons of pics on our little adventure – here are the highlights!
Our honeymoon officially started as we boarded the 2 night ferry to Bilbao – thankfully we opted for their best cabin as we were in for a bit of a choppy crossing. Breakfast in bed and the complimentary macaroons definitely made up for it though:
We arrived in Bilbao early in the morning so we decided to do a bit of sight-seeing. The Guggenheim Museum was a must for us ‘arties’ and Oli was in his element photographing it. What a stunning building!
When we arrived at our first villa we were blown away – absolutely gorgeous! We spent our time eating the most ‘typical’ French foods, drinking lots of wine, playing Boules…. and taking piccies of course
Biarritz was amazing, the weather was great and the scenery even better. We had a picnic and ate ice-cream – such tourists!
Check out what the French kids do for entertainment – fantastic to watch:
Our 2nd villa in Biscarrosse even had a Hot Tub!
And here’s some pictures in and around Biscarrosse:
Then finally we rounded off the trip heading north to my Dad’s for a while – the French markets are certainly an experience. Wish we could do it all again!
