Frenchify Your Friday – Number Nine


It’s that time of the week again, and this week I’m recommending that you Frenchify Your Friday by climbing some stairs.

Ok, so I know that there is nothing particularly French about climbing stairs.

But having said that, for me, stair climbing seems to be something I do way more when I am in France than I ever do when I’m at home.

Want to travel on the Métro? You’ll need to climb some stairs.

Visiting a museum? Get ready to climb the stairs.

Looking to take in the views from the top of a cathedral or a monument? It will be stairs all the way.

Staying in an apartment? Chances are you will be climbing the stairs at some point.

I’m sure you get the picture.

Interestingly though, when I’m in Melbourne, I rarely take the stairs. Unless I’m pretending I’m in France!

So this week, let’s bring a little bit of France into Friday and climb the stairs. Your legs might even thank you (eventually)!

Until next time – au revoir.
