Hello muffins, hope you are all well.
So, last week my good friend Travis and I went on a French adventure. We got an early ferry from Dover to Calais and spent the morning driving along the French coast. The sun was shining and it was a beautiful day. On our drive we stopped at Nord-Pas-De-Calais and basically had the beach to ourselves!
We drove down to Boulogne, parked up and went for a walk. Found a fab place to have lunch and started to discover! We found a beautiful patisserie called MTD Lestienne where I picked up some colourful and delicious macarons (with one ‘o’ because you can’t get more french than a macaron made and bought in France… But let’s not start THAT debate again…)
We continued onwards only to fall into a beautiful chocolate shop called Leonidas. I bought a selection of chocolates and went on my merry way happy with my purchases!
After more shopping, sun and sweets, we headed back to Calais for some duty free before getting an evening ferry back to England.
After a fun filled day in France, Travis and I were shattered!
But I had an amazing day, met some lovely bakers and chocolatiers, did some networking (never a day off…) filmed some short videos too and you can see my fabulously edited vlog on YouTube here.
