So Charlie and I are off to Lille next weekend! We are travelling with iDBUS who are a coach company currently doing coach trips from London to Amsterdam, Paris and Lille. Whilst it would initially seem they are a lengthier way to travel, they are kitted out with plug sockets and wifi – hello uber blog update session whilst travelling!
So my question to you dear reader, what do we do? I’ve only been to France on a school trip at the tender age of 15 so have no idea where to stay, eat, drink, see. And I am determined to get some cracking photographs on this trip.
Top of my hit list so far is Sephora (yes there is one in Lille, I’m so excited!!) and a spot of market shopping as it looks like there is a good one on a Sunday.
I also hope to soak in a bit of culture not just looking at the ornate buildings but also taking in some art at Palais des Beaux Arts.
In terms of food and drink I don’t really know where to start but I think that is part of the fun. Wandering the quaint French streets looking for a spot to perch with a glass of wine may help us find the perfect dining option.
If you have been to Lille and have any recommendations please let me know…
