Just an reminder: Since we cannot travel this summer I’ve decided to do a Throw Back Thursday of our summer in France for the past 6 years, Why 6 years because that’s only how far back this blog goes, so I can easily link to more pictures and it turns out it’s the number of weeks until school start again 😉

Throw Back Thursday: Summer 2014

Last throw back Thursday Summer edition. Can’t believe it’s been 6 weeks already.

No major trips or friend visiting this year. It’s was just a quiet summer at our house, trying to sort the moves which arrived the prevvious year at the end of our stay (typical!) so we had to deal with all the boxes stored somehow in the house the following year. Quick trip to Paris and another quick trip to the south of France, otherwise most of it spend at the house enjoying local friends & family, and a lot of fresh fruits bought at open markets (I’m missing abricots, Peach and cherries a LOT this year).

Throw Back Thursday: Summer 2015

A calm summer summarized by friends and itchy feet.

I always think I had a relaxing summer in our summer house not doing much and then I got back through the posts:

Went to Paris for our annual check up, South of France for a quick visit to my parents at their summer house, visiting a “virtual” friend in Montpelier because it was in the neighborhood, had lunch in Geneva with a friend from Beijing, decided to stop in Annecy on my way back, dropping my nephew at a motocross summer camp in montelimat and best of all got to show my own region to BFF visiting.

That’s not counting annual BBQ with childhood friend, reconnecting with the village friends around concert and fair, a visit from university friend and his family, BBF visit and sister impromptu visit during the summer.

And thats while clocking my 10th country visited in 1 year! Yeah a calm summer (and year) 2015 ;-).

Throw Back Thursday: Summer 2016

The summer of Wanderlust & Friendship.

Our usually summer spent in our summer house in France with a lot of trips, most of them unplanned.

First was daughter first trip all by herself all the way to St Barts, a longer trip to Paris with hubby and son, a very very last minute girl trip to Amsterdam with BFF (booked the night before!) followed by a solo weekend in the south of France, decided while I was driving home from the airport back from Amsterdam, another trip to Paris and finally a mother-daughter trip to Switzerland to visit what would become her school 2 years later and at the same time reconnecting with expat friends (long long time ago friend). All this while managing a move from Beijing to Singapore. More pictures from summer 2016 are: https://atotaltaitaitale.tumblr.com/tagged/c&jFrance2016/chrono

Throw Back Thursday: Summer 2017

This was the summer of Solo Road Trips Adventure.

Summer started as usual with a quick 2-day trip to Paris (we have to have an annual health check for the company) and then daughter went to St Bart with her cousin and son to his annual summer camp.

A post on Instagram about lavender fields prompt me to check how far it actually was from our house. Turns out it was pretty close (around 200kms/2+hours!) so I study a rough route and realized one of my Swiss friend (well actually American/Canadian) from Beijing had a place nearby. The little road trip ended up with a stop at her place for a couple of days as she was hosting a few others friends from Beijing then while driving around found out that the Avignon photography festival was going on, so of course I had to make a small detour on my way back home 😉

I wasn’t going to stop this driving adventure there so decided to finally make the 70 kms (less than an hour!) trip to visit Valrhona Cites du Chocolat (amazing chocolate usually used by cooks/bakers around the world), plus some vineyard were just around the corner 😉

Throw Back Thursday: Summer 2018

And it’s already week 2: Quiet summer spent in our summer house in France …No exotic trip to visit family, no weekend trip to meet up friends, just our quick annual trip to Paris and lot of me time. The highlight was however the celebration of the IB (for daughter) and French Baccalaureate (for nephew/godson)
