As I begin to write this I still can’t believe it’s actually here! For the past few months my boyfriend and I have been anxiously awaiting our end of summer trip to France with a few of our friends. And now it’s finally here! This morning I may have woken up in Brooklyn, but tomorrow I wake up in Paris!
Over the course of the next two weeks, I’ll be strolling the streets of Paris, sipping wine and biking through the lush vineyards of Provence, partying day and night in Saint-Tropez, and frolicking around Cannes, Monaco, Antibes and Eze.
I’ve been to Paris many times (studying abroad, family trips, etc) and spent my 21st birthday in The French Riviera but something tells me that this trip will be much, MUCH different. Not only do three of my traveling companions speak fluent french (one being my boyfriend), but we’ve also rented a car to “road trip” throughout the southern region, and made plans to stay at some of the most amazing hotels (Paris: Le Bristol, Provence: Four Seasons Terre Blanche, Saint-Tropez: Byblos & Cannes: The Carlton). And not surprisingly, I’ve crafted a pretty impressive regional “must eat” list for myself as I saved up $$ not for shopping, but for eating
