however, I would just like to clarify it is not actually my vacation, but a vacation for my kids. This does not in any way mean that I am also on vacation…unless you count that I am drinking a Rosé (a French pink wine, that goes down like water until you end up in Rosé re-hab for ordering it with your pains au chocolat in the morning) in one of the most exclusive and beautiful places in the world while I write this. Which of course makes me on vacation too. Also because tomorrow is Monday and who the heck would drink Rosé on a Sunday night if not on vacation? The thing is, I have just spent the past week bringing my kids to a huge amount of places to do numerous activities including beach, tennis, water skiing lessons in the morning and sailing lessons in the afternoon. All of this plus the usual pool dates here at home. All thanks to the incredible organization of my sister-in-law, who did the planning for all four cousins. A busy week. A fun week. A family week. A really freaking exhausting week. In all of this I have learned, however, that the French Riviera offers an enormous choice of things to do for children, from jet skiing to para-sailing, you can even have swim lessons in your own pool. All just a phone call away. (plus a few of these..€)
Now, if you’re wondering what I have planned for my little loves this week I can tell you in one word.
No stage,(French word pronounced STAAGSH meaning: course ) no activities, no instructors. I want to go to bed early and wake up late. Summer vacation a bit like what I did while growing up, doing mostly and mainly whole lot of nothing.
Sound good? Sounds like a vacation to me!
