France

La France: the country I relate to the most! Why? I spent 15 years in a French school so my first language while growing up was French. I moved to Paris for my undergraduate degree in 2006, where I fell in love with good quality food, bread, patisseries and wine. The French (and the Italians as well) have every right to be proud. They strongly believe in quality over quantity, which I really respect and admire.

So where should I start from? I lived in Paris between 2006 and 2009, and my favourite meal of the day was breakfast where I enjoyed a couple of slices of fresh baguette with butter. Simple but perfect. That’s all it needs, next to a hot cup of coffee. Since I was a student, I didn’t have the budget to explore the fine dining scene of Paris, but I was still very satisfied and content with the every day food you get there: fresh crepes, sandwiches, salads and desserts.

I’m trying to organise my posts but I’m finding it hard to separate some of the topics. I’ll try my best to make it flow in a logical manner. Before moving onto specific places I recommend visiting in France, I’ll quickly mention another thing I enjoy a lot: wine.
