A little escape from reality is music in my ears!
And when I found images from the beautiful french city Bayonne I knew I´d go right there any time!
The colors,the shutters,the doors...isn´t it fabulous?
And probably would be even fabulous´er to share with my love!
Perhaps be a little romantic?How can you not - in such surroundings I wonder???
And even now,just looking at the pictures,I can smell the strange smells,feel the breeze,hear the sounds of a new town...
And doesn´t my mouth just water a little bit,thinking of Bayonne - the french chocolate capital.That says something right?
Chocolate just has to be extra good in Bayonne!
If I´d ever finnish eating chocolate I would definitely be taking pictures of doors.Just love them,especially when they are old and with that famous patina!Oh la la...
Shopping is a must!
Those french little cars are the cutest,but doesn´t room much...
A few things I would´t mind bringing back,in addition to a heart and mind filled with love and memories!
Bayonne lies 10 min from Biarritz and the ocean,30 min from Spain and 40 min from the foothills of the Pyrenees!Bayonne is a fortified town of 46000 inhabitants and is crossed by both the Nive and Adour rivers which converge in the front of the town hall!Located to the north of the Basque coast which stretches 35 km along the Atlantic ocean,Bayonne rubs shoulders with famous resort towns like Biarritz,Anglet,St Jean de Luz and Hendaye as well as the picturesque inland-Basque villages of Aïnhoa,Sare,Espelette and St Jean Pied de Port…and the unspoiled beauty of the nearby Côte landaise.
The Basque Country also extends into neighbouring Spain where you can visit San Sebastian and its Old Quarter,Hondarribia for its first-class tapas,Bayonne´s twin town Pamplona or Bilbao and its famous Guggenheim Museum!
Bayonne was awarded the French distinction "Town of Art & History" in 2012.From the Gothic cathedral,UNESCO WOrld Heritage Site to the Basque Museum,Bayonne boasts an exceptional cultural heritage which includes the cloister,the remparts,Gothic vaults,the Chateau-Vieaux and the old town restoration project.It is world famous for it´s ham in addition for it´s chocolate!
And to top it all,a ride with a Vespa.Me on the back,my love driving!Let´s find the best restaurant in the town and get a dinner we never forget!The thought of it makes me hungry,and this dream keeps on getting better I am telling you ;)
But for now,it´s only a dream.One of many.Europe has so many beautiful destinations,and some of them you can see on the blog Castles Crowns and Cottages who has a wonderful link party now!
So this time I am writing in English for once since I am joining the party of wonderful dreams and magic moments.
Thanks for Anita for letting me join (and how fun that you even wanted to use one of my pictures in your own post,I am honored!)
