A Fabulous Fall in France!

October brought us sunny days, beautiful coloured leaves and visitors!

My best friend L stayed with us for a week and we did some great sightseeing together in Paris! Though we planned not to go to all of the Paris tourist spots, we just couldn't resist! The iconic Paris monuments were magnificent in the autumn sunshine and our days were filled with photo opps and french cafes!

After a week together learning all about champagne at the Moet-Chandon champagne house in Epernay, visiting Versailles, and relaxing in Fontainebleau, we said our sad goodbyes.

Then P and I were off to Kempten to visit P's extended family for the second time this year! There we met up with P's mom, spent four days exploring Allgau together, and then brought her back to France with us! We spent the P4 break travelling in Normandy and Bretagne which was beautiful!

 We were so happy to be back in Germany, sampling the kaffee and kuchen (and spƤtzle and kartoffelsalat and schnitzel...) of Bavaria!
We were taken aback by the beauty of the french countryside on our road trip north! We dipped our toes in the Atlantic sea at Normandy beach and wandered through adorable towns with beautiful architecture and fantastic croissants!
It was a wonderful way to finish our fabulous time in France!
