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.
In a complete contrast to last week's beach which was wild, fairly empty and reasonably isolated today I'm taking you to a city beach, la Réserve - it's actually in the port area of Nice - which is always crowded and absolutely tiny! The only similarity is that it's also very rocky. So what's the charm?
People and port watching are two of the reasons I like this miniscule beach. And the view of the grandiose villas on Mt Boron isn't bad either. There's just something about this place that appeals, not for every day but occasionally it hits the mark. You make a camp in a crack in the rocks and watch the Corsica ferries come and go; it's different.
In this, the sixth post in my series on far-flung France we're going on a family holiday to South America, to a little-known location, French Guyana, France's only Dom-Tom which isn't an island. Taking us on this holiday is my lovely friend Liz who is not a blogger, just a very prolific traveller. It's not easy to find people who've been to this distant land so I was delighted when Liz agreed to write her first blog post for me.
I’ll admit it, I’m a virgin blogger, this really is the very first time! But when a good friend asks for help, who am I to refuse ?
Phoebe’s currently blogging about France’s Doms and Toms (overseas départements and territories), as I’ve been to French Guyana, I’ve offered to help her out, so here goes.
