C’est Bon is another blog that came across looking at Auvernge blogs to review.
It has only been going for 9 months and doesn’t have many posts but I thought I’d do a mini-review of it to introduce it to anyone who might be interested.
C’est Bon tell the tale of the Weeks family who moved to France in April 2010. The opening post, Moving to France, I guess need a blog, evaluates the fundamental phraseology and philosophy behind the legal requirement for all foreigners moving to France to have a blog.
From there we rush forward to August when it’s time for the Tour de France which the Weeks family view from Mende in the Languedoc.
The then go to the beach at Montpellier and from there have a lovely dinner in Millau.
The highlight must surely have been a visit to Roquefort – the home of the finest cheese in the world!
The holiday bits in the U.K.
Along the way the Weeks family take a holiday in the U.K. and go to London, England where Eva said…. “I liked going to the British Museum and seeing the mummies, statues of the pharaohs and the Rosetta Stone filled with three different languages. I liked seeing Big Ben, a bell in a tower with a clock. I liked riding on the tour bus too. I enjoyed going to the Tower of London and seeing the cousin of the queen (actress). I liked being on vacation with my family.”
I think they saw more in London in one week than I saw in the seven years that I lived there!
Then they visit Northern Ireland (I’ve never been there) and discover why it’s such a green place; it rains rather a lot!
A bit like Brittany then?
Finally, a week in Scotland add to their vocabulary when they learn that potatoes are called Tatties (spuds in english) but totally fail to even begin to attempt to eat Haggis!
Why oh why not?
Back in France the Weeks family visit Lyon, France (the food capital of France and thus, the whole world) and stumble upon a Mexican restaurant!
Then it’s Paris in November with the obligatory visits to the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre.
Finally, the last post is all about Buying a Christmas Tree.
I hope that more posts follow soon – this looks like becoming a good blog.
Why don’t you drop into C’est Bon and take a look for yourself.
And, if you enjoy what you see, leave a comment to let the Weeks family know?
Personally I’m going to keep my beady eye on C’est Bon – just in case they visit Roquefort again and need someone to carry their bags….
And help sample the cheese!
All the best
