LA DOUCE FRANCE : DIJON


I am in France at the moment on holiday. We spent the first days of our holiday in Dijon, a small city in the east of France, known for it’s strong mustard. They have a beautiful old city center with many old building and art everywhere you look. We had a beautiful B&B on the outside of the city center and it had a beautiful garden ! Did you know France had the most visitors in the WORLD ?!

As pictures tell you so much more than words, here are some of the pictures I took.
