There’s More To France Than Paris x Going South
After Paris, our next destinations are in the south of France. I did not know what to expect since the areas are not the usual tourist spots. Here are some snippets from my adventure!
CHATEAU DE CRUIX, BOURJOLAIS REGION, FRANCE
Chateau de Cruix
Wine tasting + cheese and crackers
Sleepy head in tourist mode!
Cathedral de Avignon
Jambon et Fromage Omelette
The food in Avignon is a mix of Italian and French (Avignon is close to Italy). Since we are still in france, I went for the Omelette. I’ll save the pizza and pasta for Italy.
This bridge was started by a 7 year old kid. When the villagers saw him making it, they helped him finish the bridge. Unfortunately, it collapsed years after because of an earthquake.
We dropped by Fragonard Perfumerie when we were on our way to Antibes. Fragonard makes the scents for Chanel (Chanel No.5) and other famous labels. They create such beautiful scents and their perfumes are way cheaper than the ones sold in Paris. I wanted to get a few but I already did my perfume shopping in Paris.

By looking at my outfit, you can already tell that the weather has changed. The weather in Europe is beyond weird. When we were in Nice, the sun is so hot that you could get a sunburn but, once your in the shade and the wind blows, my…you’re going to freeze.
The view on top of the Chateau in Nice. Breathtaking! (literally and figuratively) You have to go up more than 150 steps to see this view but, it’s worth it! You can see the beach, the city - Oh! The contrast between the blue and red is beautiful!
The south of France is very different from Paris. From what I have noticed, it is already a mix of culture, architecture, food and everything else. You can actually see the gradual change in scenery the more you travel south. It’s more old and rustic…but then more colorful in a way. It’s more laid back, very different from the fast, busy and crowded streets of Paris.
