France - South West with Aurelies Friends and Family 29.07.2012
Less than a year later I was lucky enough to find myself back in the south west of France visiting Aurelie’s family and friends. Albane and Adrian Aurelies best friend’s wedding was the main reason for heading back so soon but I also think when you live away from your family that you should try and see them once a year.
As I had met most of her family before and seen most of the sights around Toulouse we spent two weeks catching up with her family and enjoying yummy French food and loads of delicious wine.
On the weekend before the wedding I was lucky enough to spend a couple of days in Hossegor a small surfy town on the South West coast of France with Cyril a good mate of Aurelies. During this time Aurelie went on her own hens party road trip with Albane (bride to be) and the other bridesmaids, check out the photos definitely worth a laugh!
Highlights of the holiday were surfing in Hossegor, staying in a couple of very old chateau/mansions, attending a very traditional French wedding in a 1000 year old church, visiting the beautiful Collognes-la-Rouge and Rocamadour villages.
The little French I learnt last year flooded back to me and this time round I felt a lot more confident out in public asking for directions, ordering food and having minimal conversation with strangers. Bring on the next France holiday!
