France

With diversity like no other country, it's easy to understand why France is one of the most popular destinations in the world. From alpine mountains, to golden sands. Rich history and world class food. The French people are full of character and attitude. Read our adventures, travelling from the mountains to the coasts, stopping in the most beautiful towns and villages along the way. We visit lakes, gorges, historical roman architecture, follow in the steps of Van Gogh before winding through the French Pyrenees. We will show you the best of France on a budget!

We couldn’t possibly head to the coast, leaving the mountains without experiencing the mightiest of them all: Mont Blanc. After all, it was one of the […]

Annecy: lakes, bikes, canals and catastrophes

Itโ€™s late and dark, we arrive at our Couchsurfing hostโ€™s place hours later than expected. Our journey to Annecy was a bit of a disaster. Weโ€™ve kept them updated but we still feel really uncomfortable for keeping them up so late. Yann and Cecile are super friendly though and make us a tea as soon […]
