The town of Pau, France (near Spain) is the home of Henri de Navarre who later became Henri IV. This turned out to be a lovely last-minute day trip during my stay in Bordeaux! I also discovered that Pau was once a highly fashionable resort town favored by the British in the 19th century. It also attracted the likes of one very famous American widow — Mrs. Abraham Lincoln who ended up spending a few months in Pau after her husband’s assassination. #studentofhistory #francophile #henridenavarre #chateaudepau #architecturalgem #instatravel #francetourisme #daytripbytrain #bordeauxtourisme #francoamericanconnection #travelersnotebook #beautifuldestinations
Hello. I'm Becky - and I thoroughly believe I was born in the wrong country, on the wrong continent. My soul is in France. ❤🇫🇷 xoxoxoxoxox BTW - Why is this still in my TBR?!!?! . . . . . . #toofarfromfrance #breakfastatbeckys #bookstagram #bookworm #booklover #bibliophile #bookish #france #french #wanderlust #francophile #newblogger #inanotherlife #wanderlustwednesday
Purchases I regret not making... On my last day in Paris two weeks ago I found Diptique had created a limited edition candle called ‘Paris’ only available at the Saint Germain store... a really heady scent (like the heady summer) & only available in the larger size. Alas! My luggage was already too heavy and I worried it would break in my carry-on... All the way back in Melbourne now, I so wish I’d bought that candle... 🗼
A nice revisit for good ol' times... #Nice #France #francophile
It is Napoleon Bonaparte’s birthday. The Napoleon House was meant for him to live in exile here in New Orleans. Now it’s a bar and restaurant popular with locals and tourists alike. Read about it and Napoleon then mark your place in the history books with this and other gorgeous bookmarks created from my artwork. . . . #theRDBcollection #NOLA #bookmark #napoleon #french #followyournola #frenchquarter #napoleonhouse #lovetoread #booklover #francophile #reading #giftidea #partyfavor #therdbcollectionstationery

My fixation with Julia started right after I graduated from college. A time when I’d been knocked rather abruptly off my college know it all pedestal to the real world, and a highly demanding job where I knew...absolutely nothing. At a time when I felt particularly vulnerable, she gave me hope and the first stirrings of a suspicion that perhaps my passions might be greater than the rules I thought I had to follow. Happy 106 to this woman who still inspires me. Share with someone who inspires you! #dreamchasers #carpediembaby #francophile

A little update from Maddy...⠀ ⠀ My husband Philippe doesn’t read my writing very often; I think he hasn’t quite figured out how social media works. So, I feel completely free to write about what I’m up to this week!⠀ ⠀ Philippe is a fanatical opera lover and is away in Austria at a Wagner opera festival with good friends and his 101 year old mom, all of whom are equally in love with his music. It’s not just that I can’t appreciate the music, it’s that it’s too loud for me, and my music education stopped at Motown. When I imitate sopranos, he gets furious! ⠀ ⠀ So he’s gone for a week and I’m home alone and loving it! What am I doing?⠀ ⠀ 1. Working out and taking long walks and pictures, naturally stopping at every pastry store to drool.⠀ 2. Flâneur: That means walking around with no special aim in Paris. Love it! By the way, the term comes from the Pont Neuf.⠀ 3. Organizing and cleaning up--tackling storage area Place Dauphine⠀ 4. Catching up on blogs, especially my favorite book: The Judgment of Paris⠀ 5. Lunch with girlfriend who took me to the George V!⠀ 6. Watching Netflix and Amazon Prime Video⠀ 7. Baking Canelés in my own crazy way--recipe to follow⠀ 8. Eating cheese, baguettes, and fresh fruit for dinner… in bed⠀ 9. Getting to bed early and enjoying sunrise * * * #findingfrance #parisjetaime #parisweloveyou #travelfrance #hello_france #traversefrance #francophiles #thisisparis #cityoflight #igersfrance #super_france #cestmonparis #igersparis #iloveparis #instaparis #ParisPhoto #Igers_Paris #ParisMaville #ParisMonAmour #instafrance #topparisphoto #ig_france #francophile #Loves_Paris #pariscartepostale #jaimelafrance #visitparisregion #placedauphine
I love this quote from @julielevoyer in Paris Bath and Beauty Book by @chrissycallahan 💖
Cabernet Franc is getting a resurgance of popularity these last few years, even thought it's always held a place in our hearts. This beauty comes from Pope Valley and Napa Valley! 🍇❤️ Raise your hand if you're a Cab 'francophile!' ✋🏽

The statues are on average 4 meters high and made with Breton granite. A lot of Breton Saints originated in Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Cornwall. Every year, one Saint will be built in one of those countries and then transported in a tall ship, the same way the Saints originally arrived in Brittany. Saint Peran from Cornwall was the first giant to make the trip this year. * note there is a typo on slide 4 : les sculpteurs qui travaillent* We visited the Valley of Saints which in the middle (center) of Brittany. There are about 100 sculptures representing Breton Saints from Breton legends and ancient Breton rituals. The statues are funded by donations from the public and businesses. @valleedessaints #frenchrevision #frenchstudy   #learnfrench #speakfrench #frenchlesson #français #apprendrelefrançais #everydayfrench #frenchexpression #frenchvocabulary #parlerfrançais #frenchnotes #ilovefrench #frenchwords #francophile #frenchgrammar #fle

More of my finds from the postcard & paper show a while back. I got quite a few things from the mortician 😳🤪🤣 My most fave find here is the linen & paper map from France 🇫🇷 I’ll be framing it for my new home but until then it looks just like a book which would be fine too. I also love the box of pink plastic figures in the original box mailed from the 100 Dolls Company. Not sure if they are all there but I don’t care, they’ll be fun to use in some crafts. The South Dakota Young Citizens League book is all written in by different people from their meetings & is so fun to look through, kind of like being in Mayberry. It set me back $1! And of course you can’t go to a postcard show without bringing home a postcard or several 🤣 . . 🎟 #postcardandpapershow #francophile #frenchmap #french #france #vintage #antique #youngcitizensleague #100dollsco #plasticfigures #postcards #papyrophile #papyrophilia #paperlover #ephemera #paperhoarder #papercollector #postcardcollector #christmas #royalty

“If a little dreaming is dangerous, the cure for it is not to dream less, but to dream more, to dream all the time.” - Marcel Proust . I dream all the time. I dream of a better education for my children. I dream of remote forests with trees I have yet to sit amongst and listen to. I dream of greasy food trucks in cities and towns my feet haven’t touched. I dream of France, of my home. I dream of a better food system; of bigger and better urban plans. I dream of having more time to do and more efficiency to accomplish. Oh, how I do dream ... . Tell me. What do you dream of? . #wanderlust_tribe #nomadstories #navywife #readingissexy #foodietribe #marcelproust #frenchvibes #noir_vision #francophile #francophiles #urbanfarm #worldschooling #arteducation #français #modelsmovement #mykarmakoma #wholefoodie #iheartnature #hugatree #permaculturedesign #urbanfarmgirl #francophone #francophones #frenchlifestyle #memoirsofmotherhood #mumstyle #mumslife #kidswithpassports #nomakeupselfie

I like eating out, especially in France and I love their salads. But I also love my salads the way I make them. This one is perfect for hot weather, drizzled with a shallot and parsley vinaigrette. I love #chicory which the French call #endives - There’s a couple of slithers of smoked salmon and a local gooey goats cheese which I mopped up with fresh baguette. I had a cheeky glass of white wine on the ‘terrasse’ of our mobile home. As it’s holidays innit. . . . . #endivesalad #chicorysalad #olives #tomatoes #cucumber #parsley #basil #goatscheese #francophile #frenchfood

🏰🏯 We wanted to share some local architecture and at the risk of seeming a bit odd, we just loved this roof and chimneys!! 🙃 . There are so many amazing Chateau's, follies and generally interesting architectural flourishes in the area. . It is lovely to cycle or drive around the country lanes and spot a turret on the side of a barn (just because) or a small, tall folly in a field from times gone by! . What architectural period is your favourite? . . 🇫🇷Check our Bio for our website with full details or at www.remarkable-retreats.com 🇫🇷 . . . . . . #luxuryholidays #LoveFrance #travel #nextadventure #wanderlust #francophile #weekendbreaks #weekendgetaway #familyholiday #familyvacation #holidaytime #familytravel #Normandie #Normandy #beautifulbuildings #borntotravel #passportready #holidaylettings #frenchholiday #Travelideas #holidaymood #luxurytravel #France #architecture #interiordesign #holiday #luxury #holidayideas #holidaytime #visitfrance
Le Chevrot. A delicious goat cheese made in the Loire Valley. This chèvre is made by an old cooperative in the village of Celles-sur-Belle near Poitou. It can be either pasteurized or unpasteurized. Le Chevrot sports a bloomy wrinkled rind. The interior is dense and smooth. I would not exactly call this cheese goaty. It lacks that tangy goat cheese flavor. This one is fairly young and has notes of herbs, hay, butter, nuts and white button mushrooms. ◾️ Classically, this would pair well with a Loire Sauvignon Blanc. Some other great options would be a Colombard/Ugni Blanc blend from Gascony or a dry Bordeaux Blanc. Champagne and rose are also great options.

🇨🇬RÉPUBLIQUE DU CONGO🇨🇬: Bantu-speaking largely displaced and absorbed the early Pygmy inhabitants around 1500 BC. Several #Bantu kingdoms built trade links leading into the Congo River basin. After Portuguese explorers reached the mouth of the #Congo in 1484, commercial relationships quickly grew between the inland Bantus & European merchants. After centuries as a major transatlantic trade hub, direct European colonisation of the Congo river delta began in the late 19th century, eroding Bantu power. The area north of the Congo River came under French sovereignty in 1880 as French Congo, then as Middle Congo in 1903. In 1908, Middle Congo became part of the newly organised French Equatorial Africa (AEF). The French designated #Brazzaville as the federal capital. Economic development centered on natural-resource extraction with little regard to the cost of African lives. Following a high-profile role during WWII, Congo benefitted from post-war colonial admin and infrastructure spending. When the AEF, was dissolved, she became the Republic of Congo in 1958 as an autonomous colony. Independence followed on this day in 1960. Happy independence day to our #Congolese Queens! #CongoleseGirl #AfricanQueen #Decolonisation #IndependenceDay #NationalSelfDetermination #Francophone #Francophile
