The next stop on our road trip through France was through to the quaintest city I’ve ever experienced. Only there for a night, we quickly made the most of wandering through the cobbled streets, stopping on a stretch of restaurants and street music for an apero before dinner.
If you’re looking for a short break that has it all; sun, sea, sand and city life, Nice will do nothing but continuously surprise you with it’s French splendour and friendly people. My first experience of France outside of Paris and I was oh so impressed. We were in town late September and it was too hot to handle so be prepared for hot weather but check ahead.
We were only there for a couple of nights but made the most of the gastro experience the city had to offer. I won’t give a run down of every place we ate but have highlighted the best of the bunch below!
A wise person once told me that the best way to understand and appreciate wine is to drink, a lot. Bursting with excitement at the challenge 2018 fast became the year of drinking wine in abundance. I’ve learned a lot this year from four main sources.
- This wine book that my best friend Roop purchased for me last year for Christmas – Wine Folly.
- Janet – My boyfriend’s mum – I’ve never met anyone who can better navigate the top shelves of Sainsbury’s 25% off 6 bottles
- Guillaume – our epic wine tour guide in Chateauneuf-du-Pape who taught me all the wanky but logically things you need to know about tasting a wine for the first time
- Vivino app – mainly to help me understand what notes and flavours are in the bottles I’m drinking. WARNING – don’t scan in a restaurant. It hurts to know you’ve just paid £50 for a £8 bottle of wine…
Among her circle of friends (human only…we’ll explain this shortly), Akira is known as quite the diva. Not in the sense that she’s high maintenance or anything but she has a style of how and when she likes to hang out.
In the run up to Christmas, Akira and I are working with Pedigree to bring you this guide on doggie care and maintenance, not just for the holidays but relevant to all year round! Read on to find our tips…
