La Vie est Belle - Holiday snaps

Friday 28 August 2015

I've just come back from an amazing ten days in France with my friend to visit family. I usually go every year and it's my little bubble away from home. There's basically no wifi (except for if you're prepared to hang out of the top bedroom window) which provides even more escape from the happenings of the rest of the here's a few snaps from my getaway by the sea :)

Every morning, the sun poured in through the shutters..

We started each day with a 5 mile walk along the beach to make us feel a little less guilty about the amount of food we were indulging in!

But sometimes these walks just ended up in us indulging some more! If you like pina colada...

Is that stuck in your head now?!

White sand, blue sea and palm trees! What more could you want? perhaps..

We went for a selection of tapas because I'm greedy and like to try everything!

I've never been a fan of seafood or fish but I have been converted into a king prawn lover after trying these battered beauties.

And I ate actual squid without batter on so I couldn't even pretend it wasn't squid!

This photo makes me laugh because on this particular day, my uncle was supposed to be taking me and Rachel out for lunch...but it somehow ended in us all getting very tipsy after a few rounds of cocktails with no lunch ever eaten!

Now imagine what a 12 euros fruit salad looks like.....

Go on picture it clearly in your head.....

Silver platter with lots of exotic fruits? Yeah I thought so too but instead we got this glass..

Which actually was really yummy but I do think it was a bit overpriced..

As well as a being a new lover of prawns, I have also discovered the joys of a 'nana nap' since being away! Honestly, lying in the sun doing nothing all day makes you so tired! Do you ever feel like the less you do, the more tired you are?

Here we are catching the rays! :) We did manage to drag ourselves away from the beach to go to a waterpark and also canoeing which sadly I couldn't get photos of!!

Next stop is London!!! Photos to come soon :)

Hope you've all had a fab summer!
