I lived in France for nearly 6 months in 2015. France is a beautiful country, the culture is complex, but it’s worth navigating. Do your best prior to your visit and learn some French. It’ll make your trip more enjoyable and interesting. Most of my time was spent in Montpellier in the south of the country.
The historic city center of Montpellier is very well-preserved and feels like you are walking through a postcard. It feels like that, because you are walking through a postcard. It’s a beautiful city, often overlooked and overshadowed by many other French cities. There’s plenty of beautiful hikes not far from the city too. Grab yourself a baguette and some champagne, we’re going to France.
Photography note: All photos were taken with a Nikon D3200 HDSLR camera with AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 18-55mm lens.(I still don’t really know what all of that means, but there you go.) Only edits made were minor crops and resizing.
