With Paris always in my thoughts, these are some French essentials.....at least they are for me!
A really good travel guide of Paris, (or France if you plan to travel further afield) is a must, you won't want to miss a thing. It is wonderful to relax after a long day of sight seeing with a soothing glass of rose. My all time favorite dessert is a creme brulee, but what better way to start the day than with a petit dejeuner of crusty fresh bread or a cloud soft croissant.......doesn't it just make you want to pack you bags!
Of course all of these things are wonderful to experience in 'real-life', but it such a buzz to be able to find all my favorite things also in 'miniature'.
