Instamonth #July

Artois || amber jewellery || butterflies in Belgium
on the train || some more patterned tights || sunset
pizzaaaa! || lunch on the beach || classic snakebite

Most instamonth posts usually start with me saying 'oh what a crazy month' or 'it went so fast!' and I guess this month was also pretty mad, I mean, I am in France, and I did get to go to Belgium for the first time and met an internet friend! Sometimes I feel it's all gone really fast, but looking back I'm like jeez.... this month was actually so long. Now I'm glad to see the start of August!

The photo of the beach and beach huts is from another Ifremer station, near La Rochelle, about a 3-4 hour drive from Nantes, where we had to go to collect UV treated seawater for the experiment. Long ass journey, but lunch on this beach and getting a tour around another Ifremer station was totally worth it!

I also went to Clisson with my host family which is a quaint town with Italian and medieval architecture and beautiful castle ruins. The place is all medieval themed with people dressed up and so many stalls of wonderful handmade trinkets, food, and bags and shoes! The photo of all the amber jewellery is from there, there was so much of it! And as always, I was totally drawn to it! I actually forgot to charge my camera that day so it died before we even got near the castle #bloggerprobz but instead I just enjoyed it, I think the smells of the place will stick in my mind more than anything else! Especially that of the fresh candyfloss being whipped up...

The butterflies and old Artois building were taken in Belgium, probably the best weekend of the summer so far! I have so many photos to share, I'm still trying to organise them into a few posts!

Now tell me, how are you? I hope July has been kind to you and filled with summer adventures and/or relaxation! Maybe some sun too! xo
