The Lou Messugo Blog - life in the south of France from a British/Australian TCK's perspective, bringing you French culture, travel on the Côte d'Azur and beyond, expat issues and a little bit of je ne sais quoi all mixed up with a hefty dose of photography.
I've been nominated by the wonderful Corinne of Reflections Enroute for a Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award. I'm always chuffed to be chosen for this sort of blogging recognition but not least when it comes from one of my favourite travel bloggers. One of the best things about blogging, I think you'll find any blogger will say, is the friendships you make online and I've loved getting to know Corinne over the last couple of years. There's a "small world" anecdote here; Corinne lives in a small town in Bavaria which no one's ever really heard of except that as a teenager I used to go there for R&R breaks from Prague where I was living! Prague was very much behind the Iron Curtain at the time and when we needed to get out to indulge in a little Western decadence and particularly retail therapy it was to this little town we went, 35 years ago! A fun little coincidence in this big wide world.
Christmas on the Côte d’Azur is full of fun, often full of good weather and probably a great deal more festive than you might think.
I’ve put together a round up of christmassy things to do and places to go on the French Riviera and nearby based purely on my family's experience and interests. It’s far from exhaustive, just my ideas, so please feel free to add any events I’ve missed in the comments below.
