Happy Summer everyone! June 21 was the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. My husband and I had tapas and wine in our garden to celebrate. It was really nice!
This year the summer weather started early. March was hot and sunny; it seemed like summer! April was terribly rainy, but since May we have had lots of sun.
Last month (in May) we went to the Cannes Film Festival. It was a fun and interesting experience. The atmosphere was very festive. We saw Sylvester Stallone from very far away because we couldn’t get close to the red carpet – there were too many photographers and fans! The town of Cannes is located on the Cote Azure (the blue coast). It’s a very beautiful and famous part of the Mediterranean Sea.
Before driving home, we crossed the border into Italy for a few hours to have pizza, tiramisu and espresso in the town of Ventimiglia (ベンティミリア). It was delicious! I can’t find such good pizza in France, even though the countries are right next to each other. I was happy to go to Italy because I am one quarter Italian on my mother’s side (my mother’s father was born in Italy). So I feel like I have a special connection with Italy.
It was a great trip! I hope you are all having a wonderful summer!
P.S. The photo was taken in Ventimiglia, Italy!
