The 2019 edition of the Annecy Venetian carnival took place this weekend and we were so excited to be there...
This was one of my favourite carnivals.
A festival of beautiful costumes and masks spread out in the streets, canals and gardens of the old town. 🎭🎉

👉🏻 This week I’ve updated my article on the Alpilles with new content and photos.
✅ The Alpilles is the name of a small, craggy and rocky mountain range between Avignon and Arles.
✅ Another picture-postcard of Provence!
✅ The lower slopes of the Alpilles are blessed with a colourful and sun-kissed landscape of cypress trees, olive groves, vineyards, and sunflowers. On the foothills also grow pine, almond and Kermes oak trees.
✅ The region boasts some of Provence’s most famous tourist sites.
✅ First, there is the town of Saint-Rémy and the Roman ruins (Les Antiques, Glanum).
✅ Then, the medieval village of Les Baux-de-Provence dominated by the fantastic ruins of its castle.
✅ I particularly like the atmosphere of Eygalières and its isolated St. Sixte chapel.
✅ Or the Daudet windmill in Fontvieille and the nearby ruins of the Montmajour Abbey.
✅ All these not far from Avignon and Arles!
😍 Sounds wonderful doesn’t it?

🎭 Did you know? Today is Mardi-Gras! 🎉
✅ Mardi-Gras literally means “Fat Tuesday”. It is originally a catholic event which marks the end of the “week of the seven fat days”.
✅ The word “carnival” derives from the Latin “carnelevare” meaning “to take out the meat”.
✅ Indeed, meat was banished from the table during the whole period of Lent. As was sugar, ingredients containing fat, eggs and dairy products.
✅ Mardi-Gras is an opportunity taken by many to enjoy outdoor feasts, masquerade processions, masked balls, parades, pageants, jugglers, magicians and stilt walkers. ✅ Alongside crêpes, two other closely related treats are prepared on Mardi-Gras: waffles and beignets.
✅ Some of France’s most famous carnivals are those of Dunkirk, Paris, Mulhouse, Sélestat, Annecy and Nice.

👉🏻 This week I’ve updated my article on Saint-Rémy-de-Provence with new content and photos.
✅ Saint-Rémy-de-Provence lies in a beautiful countryside against the backdrop of the Alpilles range.
✅ The streets of the old town are lined with medieval restored houses and lead you to quiet little squares, shaded by remarkable plane trees.
✅ Saint-Rémy is packed with wonderful little streets, restaurants and boutiques.
✅ The town is known for being the birthplace of Michel de Nostredame (aka Nostradamus) in 1503.
✅ In the outskirts of Saint-Rémy are the fantastic Roman ruins of Les Antiques and Glanum.

👀 A closer look at the Eiffel Tower’s second platform!
The Eiffel Tower has three platforms open for visitors: - the first level is 57 m high
- the second stands at 115 m
- the last level reaches 276 m with a view stretching for 70 km, as far as the outskirts of Paris, Charles de Gaulle airport and the countryside beyond its suburbs.
How many visitors can the Eiffel Tower hold at the same time?
The answer is more than 5,000.
• the first platform can carry a total of 3,000 people at the same time.
• the second platform can support 1,600 and
• the summit of the tower 400 (on two different levels linked by a staircase).

Breathtaking isn’t it?

A photo taken in the Louvre, Paris on a clear February day (a couple of years ago).
Did you know that the Louvre is the world’s largest art museum with 38,000 objects exhibited over an area of 72,735 square meters?
In 2018 the Louvre was also the world’s most visited art museum, welcoming 10.2 million visitors!
The Louvre is also a historic monument located in the centre of Paris on the right bank. A former royal palace built in the late 12th century, it was extended many times over the centuries with Renaissance and classical additions.
The last renovation took place in the 1980s with the edification of the glass pyramid - a controversial feature - in the middle of the Napoleon courtyard.
Today many visitors will try to get to see Mona Lisa, the Louvre’s most popular attraction!
