Being French, Confinement

Covid cacoon

I have to say I'm not much good at staying in, the possibility of another confinement is filling me with anxiety I don't need. Currently in France we have an 18h00 curfew, at which time I'm just stepping out to go to work, when I finish I bimble home slowly. It's only 20h00 and there's… Lire la suite Covid cacoon

Art- In all its glory

Bézier Whilst traveling Europe although I ventured into some of the most popular cities famous for their art collections, I did happen to come across some amazing art, but believe it or not I didn't actually step inside any museums or galleries! Marseille It wasn't as if these museums were unfortunately closed for one reason… Lire la suite Art- In all its glory

It’s starting to feel a little like England

I have to admit when I decided to try living here in southern France, like so many Brits, (but not so many quite like me, I'm unique remember) I didn't quite count on seeing so much rain and overcast skies. Perhaps this has been an unusual spring, perhaps not, but I'm starting to get a… Lire la suite It’s starting to feel a little like England

Traveling solo: My version of the truth.

Got to admit time doesn't fly, in fact it goes at such a pleasant and natural state. I don't wear a watch and rarely follow a schedule, I rise just after dawn that's if I've managed to be in bed before midnight. Cooking most of my meals from scratch and eating when I'm hungry, life… Lire la suite Traveling solo: My version of the truth.

Serendipity style!

The pleasure of reading reignited! I now realise why the word serendipity really suits my style, the writer Horace Walpole created the word in 1754 to describe something that happened as a pleasant surprise, referring to a story called The Three Princes of Serendip, (the old name for Sri Lanka) it certainly seems to resonate… Lire la suite Serendipity style!

Grado, Italy

A day at the beach I'm not exactly the beach type, getting myself into a bathing suit has never been my favourite pass time but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy the beach. I do! The Italians seem to love their beaches, Trieste, a nearby city with its shipping history was notably empty of locals,… Lire la suite Grado, Italy

Menton,  France 

As I slipped slowly away from Italy this last summer, my first stop brought me to the lovely town of Menton, France only a few kilometres from the Italian border. Not quite the cote d'azur but it has that air of elegance one expects from that region. Famous for it's history of lemons, though I… Lire la suite Menton,  France

Morocco, Africa   

Late but still in my thoughts. Considering I had no plan, it didn't surprise me one bit to find myself in Morocco, that's what this Serendipity free flow is all about. I have no idea where my journey will take me, as I go I get many invitations to visit other countries but even that… Lire la suite Morocco, Africa
