Ile de Ré highlights/Mes moments coups de coeur à l’Ile de Ré

🇬🇧 Our time on Ile de Re was just great – apart from a very poorly toddler stricken by a nasty case of bronchiolitis (thank goodness, there are excellent doctors in France!)

The highlights of our holiday included (get ready for tons of photos!:)

🇫🇷 Notre séjour a l’Ile de Ré fut superbe – mis a part le fait que notre petite dernière fut terriblement malade sous le coup d’une bronchiolite carabinée (heureusement qu’il y a de bons médecins en France!).

Si je vous résume les temps forts de notre séjour on y trouve (préparez-vous a une déferlante de photos!):

Beautiful autumnal colours in Buckinghamshire/Les belles couleurs automnales anglaises

🇬🇧 I love the fact that in Europe we have 4 seasons. I know, I know what you are all going to say with climate change (and the dreadful global warming) those seasons get slightly jumbled up and we sometimes have really mild winter to end up having cold Spring etc. However, you cannot miss autumn whether it’s cold or mild, with all the leaves taking yellow, orange, brown and red colours, the whole scenery changes and give you a beautiful array of shades. In this post I want to share with you a great little spot we visited the place for the first time at the weekend and where the autumn colours were incredible!

🇫🇷 J’adore le fait qu’en Europe nous avons encore 4 saisons. Ok, ok, je sais exactement ce que vous allez me dire, avec le réchauffement climatique, lesdites saisons sont parfois pour le moins confuses avec des mois d’hiver ultra doux et des printemps caillants! Toutefois il est difficile de se tromper avec l’automne car avec le changement de couleurs des feuilles et leur chute, c’est un vrai spectacle que nous donne Mere Nature! Dans cette publication j’ai envie de partager avec vous ma découverte pour une charmant petit coin que nous avons visité pour la premiere fois le weekend dernier et ou les couleurs automnales étaient fabuleuses!
