HIER, TOUS MES ENNUIS SEMBLAIENT SI LOIN*...








Yesterday, three friends and I went out for lunch in France and I Instagrammed our day for your pleasure (and mine). We drove to Wimereaux, fifteen minutes on the motorway from Calais, (if you're in a rush to make it for lunch as we were) to a hotel that had a (camera shy) resident cat manning the reception. At the restaurant there we ordered (from a human) a carafe of rosé, fish soup, beef tartare and the biggest bowl of the best frites I've ever tasted. Then we walked round the corner to the beach, paddled a bit and lay in the sun for an hour or so until we got too hot; then stocked up on French pharmacie essentials, brebis yoghurt and paté. The only downside was having to get back on the train to England.

It seems to have been such a lovely day, you're quite lucky to be able to go have lunch in France and be back home by night. Also, I can assure you Google translate did a great job!
