So it’s time for another story and image!! Sue@WordsVisual passed on this challenge to me yesterday.
Today I will tell you about my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE place in the world – on French Atlantic coast nearly on the Spanish border. Biarritz!!!!
The first time I came to Biarritz was in September 1977 – we was on our way to the French Rivera. Didn’t know anything about Biarritz, but when we left 5 days later I was in love with it.
Since then I must have been back about 8-10 times, it was so easy when I lived in UK, because Ryan Air had the route. Later on even Easy Jet open up theirs. From Sweden is it very complicated, with change or airport in Paris and all that carry on.
Beside the black rocks, surfers, the Atlantic Ocean, the fantastic seafood and that you walk to where ever you want to go. Biarritz has a monthly phenomenon, it has something to do with the full moon (I been told).
This phenomenon is the high waves that can be up to 4-6 meters. You see it early in morning when it’s going to happen – there is a mist far out at sea. And in a couple of hours the whole front of the town is soaked in salt water. It has nothing do do with ebb and tide.
That is when all beaches just disappear – and the red flags comes out.
Last time I was in Biarrtiz was over my 60th birthday and I will go back for my 70th too. Doesn’t matter how many changes of flights I have to do.
