Earlier this month I went to Norway for a little holiday. But before you ask about the famous western fjords, I’ll admit that I didn’t visit them. Did your jaw just drop? I know, I know. But on this particular trip our limited time prevented us from making the journey. Don’t worry, it’s OK. Whatever you do, don’t feel bad for us because we still had a great time without the famous fjords.
I love music. Let me clarify, I love listening to music. Most people consider my personal taste in song selections to be “eclectic” at best, and “confusing” at worst. It’s understandable because I’m not picky about genre, language, lyrics or style. A typical playlist can feature the Beatles for breakfast, merengue over lunch and heavy metal before bed. No musical discrimination in our house!
San Sebastián is a coastal city that hugs the Bay of Biscay. The resort town is well known for its impressive waterfront promenade, golden sandy beach and mountainous views. Glamorous beauty aside, the city also has a strong food and wine scene and a reputation for exciting nightlife.
When we lived in Biscarosse, France it was less than 90 minutes to the adorable village of Saint Émilion. Located in the wine growing region of Bordeaux, the medieval town sits high above the vineyards below.
I’m someone who prefers to take the scenic route. You could say I’m more interested in the journey, less the destination. I appreciate the quieter moments of travel, like leisurely neighbourhood walks, over chaotic visits to busy tourist attractions.
When I’m looking for travel inspiration I usually begin with Google. My search starts with a generic topic, for example “beautiful villages in France” and then it’s off to the races. It’s pretty easy for me to fall down a rabbit hole and lose myself in research. Thanks to the magic of the internet, new trip/travel ideas are never more than a few mouse clicks away.
