I pass through Place Garibaldi at least twice a week on my way to the market. Smaller and less grand than Place Masséna, during the warmer months it is a bustling square where you can dine al fresco or people watch while sipping a cold drink. On the weekends vendors invade the square with their antiques, […]
A sunny weekend chez les parents included a day trip to the beach. Before hitting the waves D and I stopped to visit the Pont du Gard.
It’s no secret: I adore gin. While some people dedicate their lives and their taste buds to rum — yes, I’m talking ’bout you K — I enjoy a glass of gin now and then. Not much quenches my thirst or preps my taste buds better than a well-crafted gin & tonic. (Dare I admit […]

Champagne is one of my favourite things to drink. I would drink champagne with breakfast if it was reasonable to do so. So, I skip champagne for breakfast. I do enjoy it for apéro all the way through to dessert. Yes folks, champagne is that versatile and while most North Americans enjoy champagne — or sparkling […]
