The Mistral at your back
Have you ever heard of the Mistral? It is a cold, downwind that causes mischief in France from time to time. The Mistral seems particularly at home in the Rhone Valley, but also in Provence. Initially it is felt as a warm, gentle breeze, but after a few hours it cools down noticeably and increases in strength. It is very typical of the Mistral that you do not see it coming, because the sky is cloudless and the starts rarely sparkle so beautifully. Our tip: you are significantly faster if you cycle with the Mistral and not against it! 😊
Croissants – famous around the world!
Hardly any other pastry has become so well known as the croissant. It is inevitably linked to French culture and for many represents a symbol of French cuisine. But…um…are you sure the croissant really comes from France? In fact, cultural historians suspect that the croissant was invented in Austria when the Turks besieged Vienna. Another legend says that Marie Antoinette, the wife of King Louis XVI, brought the croissant from Austria to France. Be that as it may…the croissant is, and remains, part of France and the fact is that nobody knows how to make it as well as the French. So don’t miss biting into a warm croissant in the morning, pure enjoyment.
