Honeymoon – A Road Trip

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:Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-001

 

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!Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-003 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-004 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-005 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-006 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-007 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-008 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-009 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-010 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-011 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-012 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-013 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-014 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-015 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-016

 

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 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-017 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-018 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-019 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-020 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-021 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-022 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-023 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-024 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-025 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-026 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-027 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-028 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-029 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-030 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-031 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-032 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-033 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-034 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-035 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-036 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-037 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-038 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-039 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-040 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-041 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-042 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-043 Honeymoon-A-Road-Trip-044

 

Biarritz was amazing, the weather was great and the scenery even better. We had a picnic and ate ice-cream – such tourists!

Then finally we rounded off the trip heading north to my Dad’s for a while – the French markets are certainly an experience.
