After spending a few days in Barcelona, I spent weekend in Besançon, France with another English assistant. Katie and I didn’t realize it was Easter weekend, so we spent most of our time in chinese buffet, walking in the wrong direction, climbing to the top of the citadel, or eating french-style loaded baked potatoes (twice in one day…oops).
There was also the awkward Airbnb situation. We stayed with a host and, finally, I slept in a comfortable bed. Our host was so nice, but made for some awkward times as she stared quietly at us while we ate or cooked. But she provided breakfast, and told us about Besançon, where she grew up.
Besançon was so cute, we even asked about changing our contract renewals.
So, here’s to one of the hidden gems of France.!
can’t forget my new fave restaurant, and the precious man who gave us free wine, and laughed when we came back to eat a second time in one day…
