We ♥ fromage. Cheese featured prominently in all of our dinner picnics in France and we’ve learned a few things about our cheese likes and dislikes. We are all about the runny, unpasteurized cows-milk cheeses that can be spread like butter and that used to be banned from public spaces because of their odor. We’ve listed our favorites below. Word of warning: keep these cheeses in a tightly sealed container or else your house will smell like feet!
We’ve compiled our favorite places, things, and food into city guides that we hope will be practical and easy to use if you’re planning a trip to Europe. Lucky you!
Marseille was definitely dirtier than the other cities we’ve been to, but it also had some of the coolest street art. Here’s a photo dump of some of the things we saw.
We took a day trip from Nice to visit Monaco and pretend we were billionaires. Or Bond.
The drive along the coast was stunning and if we’d had more time we would have explored any of the coves and beaches along the way. I think if you’re looking for a quieter and beautiful South of France beach experience, that stretch between Nice and Monaco (Villefrance sur Mer, Eze, Cap D’Ail) is probably the place to be.
Our first stop was the Monte Carlo. Because we were internationally renown secret agents, we figured they’d let us right in. Not so much.
Nice is pretty much French Miami, which turned out to be a nice (Nice!) place to spend a few days. I think you can see both France and Florida in the architecture:

We found out that our friends Jess and Koshi would be arriving in Paris on our last night there, so we made plans to meet for dinner and celebrate. We made a reservation at Le 6 Paul Bert, which is the hip and modern sister to the classic French bistro, Paul Bert.
