Espelette peppers are a unique species that are grown in the French Basque Country.⠀ Flash-quiz: Who knows how many points they have in the "Scoville Scale" ?⠀ #tenedortours #foodtours #frenchbasquecountry #espelette #pepper #scovillescale #beautifuldestination #nextstophappiness
Surfing in Europe has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember. Huge thanks to @bestwestern for helping me check it off the list! The #BWKemaris is only a few minutes walk from the beach and many of the best bars, shops and restaurants in town. Can’t wait for my next adventure with BW! #ad
If I could give you any advice it would be to travel. Not only because you discover beautiful places, but also because you discover how beautiful life is itself. San Juan de Luz, France. 📸: @mr._ford
It’s been amazing to partner with @bestwestern to explore the French coast and countryside! • They took the hassle out of booking in another country and I can’t wait to discover new places where there’s always a @bestwestern nearby! Be sure to give them a follow to see helpful travel tips and beautiful locations! #ad

The Eugenie Chapel was built in the Romanesque-Byzantine style and was named after Saint Eugenia, the patron saint of Napoléon III’s wife, Empress Eugénie de Montijo. The Church of Saint Eugénie is a grey stone neo-Gothic church that overlooks Port Vieux (the old port). #biarritz #francia #france #santaeugenia #catholicchurch #neogothic #architecturephotography #napoleon #paysbasque #paisbascofrances #frenchbasquecountry #mycaption #whatisee #colombianinfrance #colombiana #lacolombianagirl #viajandogoing
Festival of the pepper today in the French Basque town of Espelette!

We enjoyed a couple wildly beautiful sunset surfs in the Basque Country this week.... I had a play with some footage on my new software, in the second video Kayla turns into the Hindu God Ganesh

Bidart is a small hill top town located between the road to Saint Jean de Luz and the sea, with charm and tranquility in abundance, no hustle and bustle here in comparison to the larger resort town of Biarritz, just on its doorstep to the North. Most of the beaches are found at the base of a cliff (which, even in the height of the summer are not crowded), with the exception of two, the Plage d'Ilbarritz and Plage de l'Uhabia which are large open normal beaches. #plagederretegia #bidart #france #francia #playa #sunset #cloudsinthesky #perfectview #frenchbasquecountry #sea #colombiana #crewlife ✈️ #lacolombianagirl #viajandogoing #emiratescabincrew

Bordatto’s Bitxinxo Aphaule started his career as a winegrower in Irouleguy, France, but was quickly enticed by cider production and went full-throttle in that direction. As with wine, Aphaule early on recognized the importance of terroir with regards to farming apples, where the character of each cider is reflective of the soils & climates of where the trees are grown and even from the age of the tree and characterful are his ciders! His 'Basa Jaun' cuvee will be one of many incredible ciders poured at @kensingtonquarters “Night of the Living Cider II: Bone Dry” event on Halloween Night from 7pm to midnight. . . . #phillyciderweek #phillyciderweek2018 #cider #bordatto #basajaun #irouleguy #frenchbasquecountry #frenchbasque #cideriscider #NotLC #NotLC2018 @dmselections 📷 @jenbraganphotography
Another day, another urgent deadline, but at least I get to virtually revisit Saint Jean de Luz... Word count is 900, have so far written 500 words and only told an hour’s worth of story as it’s such a wonderful place. 48 hours of trip left to rave about.

My old back garden inside the sandstone town walls of the magical Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port for a brief moment in time. It was Summer in the foothills of the Pyrenees, so in the morning I would climb atop the walls and walk the perimeter of town, before stopping by to see my friend Bakar for a glass of Izarra, and a bit of his famous ham. Bakar and his family were a few of the first to help save the Pie Noir du Pays Basque, a breed of pig native to the Basque Country. Although common throughout the 20th century, in the Eighties there were less than one hundred sows remaining. Now farmers like Bakar are raising them again throughout the region. He told me that they grow much slower, and produce a larger amount of fat compared to the standard breeds. Because of that, commercial farms won’t mess with them. Which means that these farmers are the only ones keeping the breed going. It also means that you’ll find amazing cured hams, like Bayonne ham, all throughout the communes of the French and Spanish Basque Country. And Bakar’s hams, pates, and smoked hocks were the talk of the whole region. Hell, he was the reason why I took two trains and three separate buses to get to SJPdP. Throughout the day, friends and strangers would stop by his shop to taste his goods, and chat about that famous pig. It’s funny, in Euskara, Bakar means “alone”... But I rarely ever saw him by his lonesome. Instead, Bakar was always shaking hands and kissing cheeks. Except for every morning when we would pull up a chair on the street before opening his doors, and talk about the history of his commune, and the people of his town... Oh, and to feast on the ham and sip the herbal Izarra, of course! #saintjeanpieddeport #frenchbasquecountry #pienoirdupaysbasque
See the link in bio for my most recent post entitled, Where Have You Been, Op-Edible? It’s been over 6 months since my last post. In that time, I left a job of 16 years, traveled to Alaska, Oregon, New York, Mexico, Spain, France, Portugal, with local trips to Paso Robles, Bodega Bay, Napa, Sonoma and everywhere in between. I have been studying (and drinking) wine and pursuing my interests in all things food and wine. Read the blog for more info and photos. And @forkinggoodfoodnyc , you can even see half of you in one of my pics!

I just don’t know why people flock to the Côte d’Azur (apart from the gazillionaires) when there’s this. Beats it hands down, every time. . . . . . . #travelwriting #frenchbasquecountry #hellofrance #basquecountry #igersfrance #visitfrance #nouvelleaquitaine #instatravel #traveldeeper #igtravel #travelingram #travelpics #foodandtravel #foodietravel #southwestfrance #iamatraveler #biarritz #hipstamatic #betterthanthecotedazur
Wet footprints, a familiar sight in Biarritz. Usually following a surfer as he/she leaves the beach, wetsuit dripping and board under arm. Next time I’ll get a surf lesson, it’s been a while. . . . . . . #travelwriting #frenchbasquecountry #hellofrance #basquecountry #igersfrance #visitfrance #nouvelleaquitaine #instatravel #traveldeeper #igtravel #travelingram #travelpics #foodandtravel #foodietravel #southwestfrance #iamatraveler #biarritz #hipstamatic #surfers #surfdudes #wetfootprints #beachlife
So lovely to be back in #Biarritz - ate here last time, Cafe du Commerce, but dining at Le Pim’Pi tonight (not offending fellow diners by snapping them as they mangent) which has been the best meal I’ve on the whole trip. It’s clearly popular, too, I’ve lost count of how many people they’ve had to turn away because they’re full.

Cool little rendez-vous spot, the Chapelle Impériale, where I’m meeting Olga from the tourist office.

The trouble with an early lunch is that when you leave the restaurant, all the shops are shut. The joy of an early lunch is that you get the streets to yourself and can explore in almost silence... birdsong and the simple tune of an accordion wafting on the breeze. . In the distance is the Pyrenees, but in front of that is a pelota court, the Basque version of squash, well kind of. Apparently Johnny Borrell of #Razorlight plays it. He lives near here (when he’s not rocking stages worldwide). . . . . . #travelwriting #frenchbasquecountry #hellofrance #basquecountry #igersfrance #visitfrance #silentstreets #lunchhour #nouvelleaquitaine #instatravel #traveldeeper #igtravel #travelingram #travelpics #foodandtravel #foodietravel #southwestfrance #iamatraveler #saintjeandeluz #espelette #pimentdespelette #hipstamaticpics #johnnyborrell #pelota #pyrenees
When I was researching and interviewing all the chefs (x65) for #francefromthesource @lonelyplanet I lost count of those who raved about #pimentdespelette , even as far away as Paris. But the Basque country is its heartland, where its epicentre is the village of Espelette itself. . . . . . . . #travelwriting #frenchbasquecountry #hellofrance #basquecountry #igersfrance #visitfrance #nouvelleaquitaine #instatravel #traveldeeper #igtravel #travelingram #travelpics #foodandtravel #foodietravel #southwestfrance #iamatraveler #saintjeandeluz #hipstamaticpics #espelette
With its sheltered bay and sweeping beach, Saint-Jean-de-Luz is perfect for paddle boarding or just paddling! Sea water thalassotherapy is also popular at the French spas and the seafood is excellent.
The Art Deco decor at the Hotel Parc Victoria in Saint-Jean-de-Luz is beautifully done. I wasn’t lucky enough to stay at this elegant French mansion but lunch in such a special place was divine.
