Caserne Bitche, 13 July 2015. The annual block party at fire stations on the eve of Bastille Day is always a good idea.

Weekend in London

We popped by London for a quick weekender in early July. Can’t believe a) it’s almost two years since I was last there b) the number of friends who have now relocated there ! Was super pumped to squeeze in an afternoon at the V&A with T for a life-changing exhibition. I think I’m starting to develop a soft spot for The Old Smoke. #sorryparis

Couldn’t have asked for a better way to appreciate the legacy of Haussmann’s transformations. The 16th-century Flamboyant Gothic tower is open to the public during weekends for just three months each year, by guided tour only. Get your tickets here. The only catch: Reservations open 10am Mondays for visits of that week.

If you ever find yourself in Burgundy, definitely make sure you are in Dijon on a market day. It felt like I had stepped back in time, in a good way. Designed by Dijon local Gustave Eiffel, the covered market was bright, airy, spacious and full of old people. Resisting the temptation to buy everything (not easy), we eventually left with a little pot of rillettes de porc, bread, some cheese and pavé bourguignon for a picnic lunch nearby.

Les Halles
21200 Dijon, France
Open Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings, all day on Saturdays
