Bees. A Story of Survival

Bees. A Story of Survival

Bees. A Story of Survival is a special exhibition at the World Museum in Liverpool. It opened in May this year and it is on until May next year. It offers an immersive experience and it is really good. I’m sharing a few highlights from our visit. The whole exhibition is in low light with […]

Palais des Papes

Palais des Papes, in Avignon, was fantastic to visit. It is a very important historical place for many reasons. The palace is one of the largest and most important medieval Gothic buildings. It is impressive through its size, as a fortress and palace. On top of that it was a papal residence during the 14th […]

Vegan in Southern France

As I shared previously how my experience was as a vegan in other countries, today I am talking about how it is to be a vegan in Southern France. I mentioned before that we’ve been to multiple cities, so this is quite an accurate representation. Overall there is a struggle to have vegan dishes as […]

CuppaPug Manchester

I’ve been to CuppaPug in London once, see here, and to the newly opened one in Manchester twice. Today I will share pictures from our last visit, a few days ago. The rules are the same, with the only exception being the photo at the end of the visit. There is a fixed fee for […]

Nîmes

Walk through Nîmes

After talking about 2 important Roman buildings, Arènes de Nîmes and Maison Carrée, today I take you on a walk through Nîmes. It is a lovely city with great transport links. Nîmes could be a great “base” for day trips to nearby cities, such as Avignon, Montpellier, and Marseille. I would like to go to […]

Arènes de Nîmes

Arènes de Nîmes and Maison Carrée

Arènes de Nîmes and Maison Carrée are two amazing Roman constructions in Nîmes. They are about 5 minutes walk from each other. There are joint tickets, which include a tower and a museum. I haven’t seen the tower, but I saw the museum, which will be included in a round-up of Nîmes. Arènes de Nîmes […]

June 2024

I spent the first 2 weeks of June in France. My husband had work commitments there, while I was busy finishing my thesis. After that we had a well deserved week off for holiday. We went to a few places: Montpellier, Marseille, Aix en Provence, Nîmes, and Avignon, on top of a few smaller cities, […]

fountain

Palais Longchamp

Palais Longchamp is called a palace, but in fact is a water reservoir. This gorgeous fountain which has two museums, on each side is a beauty, well worth visiting in Marseille. It was built after the cholera pandemic of 1835 and the project involved constructing a 85km canal to bring water from the Durance river […]

Cathédrale Saint-Pierre de Montpellier

Walk through Montpellier

I think Montpellier was my favourite city in southern France. Of course all have amazing and interesting things to see, but I just liked the feel and atmosphere of Montpellier better. La cathédrale Saint-Pierre is one of the most unusual I saw. That entrance looks so unique. The cathedral dates back to the 14th century. […]

Oriel entrance

Oriel Oxford

I finished my course, so today I am sharing pictures of Oriel Oxford, my college. I could have shared double the number of pictures, so there are things missing. The college is 698 years old, established in 1326, under Edward II. It is one of the smallest colleges by size, naturally for a college so […]
