Starbucks Red Cup

It's kind of become a tradition hasn't it? It's like the unofficial kick off to the holiday season. Even though i'm miles away from my bestie, this made me smile...reminds me of the good old days when we'd sit and gossip with our peppermint mochas or our gingerbread latte's. Unfotunately the holiday beverage selection is different here in Barcelona. So this is my toffee nut latte. I usually don't fancy going to Starbucks here. I mean, why would you? There are great coffee shops everywhere with much better coffee (in my opinion).

happy thanksgiving

My dear friend invited me to celebrate Thanksgiving with her and some other folks. We spent the day cooking, drinking and gossiping. What a great way to spend the day. And the best part of it is sharing the fruits of your labour with dear friends.

Next Leg

Although tempting, it was a bit chilly to take a dip that morning.

What a great morning to wake up to. The sun is shining, the air is crips. What more could you ask for?

After a delicious and filling breakfast we were ready to plan the next leg of our trip, with a hot cup of coffee.

I was surprised to see there was a post box for such a deserted town (if you could call it that).

We rushed over to the town of Uzès to grab some dinner before everything shut down for the night.

Don't you just love it when your parents hang up your art work? I thought this was very cute and naturally had to photograph it.

Le Jardin

The colours and the view are just priceless. Gives you that feeling of the simple life. The last picture was actually the view from the shower. Talk about a tranquil experience.

A pit stop in the country...

On our road trip through the South of France we made a night pit stop in this beautiful country house in the middle of nowhere (Gattigues). Well to be exact it was 7km north of Uzès. The house was rented by a Swedish woman and her French husband Olivier who together run this bed and breakfast. We woke up to a beautiful breakfast in the garden. Great place to be to chill and relax and start the day right. The hosts were super friendly and not to mention their quirky/weird sense of humour. Loved it! You can check it out here:

Chanel Academy

We found ourselves at what appeared to be the Chanel Academy. What actually happens inside is anyones guess. One can speculate that this is where the brainwashing happens before you can start to work for Chanel. And that pathway into the garden...doesn't it look very magical? After a few minutes of ooing and ahhing it was time to hit the road and continue on our road trip. As you can tell from the first photo, it was a brutally windy day and it didn't help my allergies one bit.

St. Tropez afternoon...

Here are more pics from my trip to St. Tropez. What a great way to spend the afternoon...going for a stroll and discovering. Despite the wind, it was a great day to be in St. Tropez.
