A walk in Nancy

August is here and I’m finally done editing all the photos from all the places I went to this spring. I know it’s been so long since, but I’m sure you’ll enjoy the photos anyway. Today, we’ll begin with Nancy…

The good thing about road trips is that you get to see many different places in a very short amount of time. They’re packed with all sorts of interesting sights among the thousands of kilometers that you might have to drive. One night we slept in Nancy, a lovely city full of students. We didn’t have so much free time to walk in the city and the weather was so cold and so rainy, but we saw the center of the city, met some locals and enjoyed a cup of vanilla tea. Oh, yes, and some macarons. Because here’s a nice info you might be interested in, Nancy is the place where macarons originate from. The ones we bought were the real deal. Truly delicious!

  • I love that architecture! Definitely looks French, haha 🙂

    • I know! It’s a typical north-easten French city! 🙂

  • That’s so awesome that Nancy is the place that macarons originated from, and I’m sure that they were to die for!

    • Oh yes, they totally were!

  • Oh wow, this town looks so pretty! It seems that all the French cities have a similar “look,” because the pictures reminded me of Paris and Versailles.
