Weekend Links: Week Four

Weekend Links Week Four, articles about France Paris bridges

Weekend Links Week Four has sixteen articles about France…I included a few extra since it’s a holiday weekend! Some of my favorites include photos from Brigitte Bardot’s former home in the South of France, 19 fascinating things in French supermarkets, links to take a virtual tour all around France, and 10 favorite French rosés for under $30.

  1. I really like that you have added these lists to your weekly postings. I was depressed at the article on how poorly the US is doing, but loved the articles on the new Catherine Deneuve movie and the Bardot house. I so enjoy your entire blog and hope I make it to Paris next March – fingers crossed.
