My French TripPosted by: admin | Posted on: December 16, 2017
A few years ago, I went to France. I think I was around 25 years old. Like anyone visiting that beautiful country, there are certain things that everyone should try. By this, I am specifically talking about the bread, wine, and cheese. Those are staples! But France does food the right away.
Maybe it’s the skill of the bakers. Maybe it’s the water. By the way, water in Europe is different than water in America. Europe has more stringent rules with water. Their water treatment laws are more demanding than those in America.
Many things are different in Europe. For example, the public transportation system is known to be better than ours. In my experience, I know this to be true. Specifically, I enjoyed the train system. I took the train from Cherbourg to Paris. To my surprise, the trains had nice carpeting and lounges. This was the public train! The trains ran all day and night. They were also very fast. I think one could purchase food or water.
Paris was gorgeous. Or maybe I think so because I saw the city from the top of the Eiffel Tower. Here’s a fun fact: there is a restaurant near the top of the Eiffel Tower. I did not eat there, but I’m sure the food is wonderful. I’d also imagine one has to book many months in advance for such a luxurious setting for dinner.
Speaking of food, the French have similar habits for meals. However, some are slightly different. For example, chocolate spread and toast is a common part of breakfast in France. My hotel served this. It was extra delicious because the French are known for their tasty breads. And, yes, the wine was fabulous. I highly recommend any world traveler to make their way to France. It is one of my favorite countries to visit.
