    Last day in our #1 house

    August 1, 2016 in France ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    We are leaving Annecy tomorrow. It was a great experience. We love it here! Thanks for everything Genevieve! A long ride towards Paris is ahead of us, so we better take a good night sleep ;)

    Beaune

    August 2, 2016 in France ⋅ ☁️ 24 °C

    Charming little town, where we stopped for lunch. That's what you call a meal with a view (and a good one!-sorry no pics, we were hungry) 😍🏫🍷

    Home exchange, house #2

    August 2, 2016 in France ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    After a long drive through the fields of gold and wind mills we finally made it to our second house in the suburbs of Paris! A house with a big garden! In Paris! Tres bien 👌🏡🗼 Thor also approves 🐕 We arrived quite late, but it got dark just now though. So, very long days are ahead of us👍

    Antoine (our host) greated us with a warm heart, great tips and a bottle of wine 😇🍷We're off to bed now. It actually just started to rain, but we don't mind a few cooler and easygoing days starting with a good night sleep ☔😊.

    Notre Dame, Paris

    August 3, 2016 in France ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Gothic cathedral Notre Dame on the Ile de la Cite island. Big. Beautiful. And pretty crowded, as they closed the place up front for the people (they're being cautious because all of this attacks lately). So, we didn't wait in line to get in, instead we hopped on a boat and took a ride on the Seine.

    Eiffel tower, Paris

    August 3, 2016 in France ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    It doesn't seem as big on the picture as it really is in person. The lines are huge though, so we didn't make it to the top. But the whole presence gives the city this special feeling (I'm trying not to use word romantic again😉), on moments a bit overwhelming, but on the other hand, it leaves you speachless. Just wow. As they say, Paris is always a good idea!🗼 💏❤Read more

    Reims

    August 4, 2016 in France ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    We decided to run away from rainy Paris and check out the wineyard landscape. Reims was our first stop on our champagne route. We were amazed by Cathedrale de Notre Dame in Reims💒 Gorgeous vitrages inside! Thor had to wait outside. No big deal though as he hates churches anyway 😁🐕
