    So my boyfriend is French and we just got back from 2 weeks in Brittany, France, deep in the country to visit his whole family. I’m talking very rural, tractors are driving on the roads EVERYWHERE!
    This article is pretty spot on. We ate at their home for every single meal, and for weekday dinners and weekend lunches and dinners, this is spot on! (Weekday lunches are more casual and not really with alcohol lol, breakfasts aren’t a group thing)
    The aperitif was my favorite, everyone getting to chat and talk. Dinner starts at the table with usually a bottle of wine, and a salad or entree(app), then the main dish, the cheese course after and ending with dessert and or coffee! Dessert was usually Italian made ice cream or chocolates(quality from nestle). My partners mother is Italian and father is from the region in France they live now, so it was very French and Italian based meals, but it was a huge range! Couscous and paella were my favorite dishes!

    I love that you shared this style!! I honestly fell in love with it! And you were super accurate for when I just experienced!
    (Paris is very different from rural Brittany, I spent time in both. If you ever get the chance to see Brittany, I highly recommend it in the summer 😀 )

🚨 Now sharing all of my favorite hotels in one spot! 🚨
I have thousands of articles on my travel blog, which is great, but can understandably feel overwhelming if you’re looking for something specific like hotel recommendations.

Which is why I’m super excited to let you know that I created a Travel Shop on the Expedia App where I’ll be sharing curated Collections from my travels to over 75 countries, with my favorite hotel stays, my own bucket list hotels, and getaway recommendations like “the best hotels for a girlfriend getaway”.

It’s so easy to navigate — you can book directly from the Expedia App or save to your profile for a future trip.

I’m working on adding Collections for everywhere I’ve traveled, so be sure to bookmark my Expedia Travel Shop so you can easily reference all of my hotel recommendations in one place.

I’m so excited to share that @the_baby_abroad family travel blog is now live! 👶🏼✈️
I’ll be sharing countless articles addressing the most common travel questions I got throughout my pregnancy, Oliver’s early travels, and now that he’s a BUSY toddler.

Of course, I’ll also be sharing all of my tips for flying with a little one, airline reviews (with kids in mind), comprehensive travel guides on the destinations we’ve traveled as a family, honest product reviews, and everything in between.

But what I’m most excited about is that this will be a community resource with tons of guest authors. Raising a child is such a unique experience for every family, and I personally love to see how ALL types of families travel.

My hope is that The Baby Abroad will become a resource that represents all types of families exploring the world with their kids at every stage of life.
I couldn’t be more excited about this new adventure, and I hope you’ll follow along @the_baby_abroad! #thebabyabroad
