Coffee tasting in the sun at the Bubble Coffee Shop in Valbonne Village. Columbian, Brazilian, and Italian mix. Italian is my favourite :-)

Brussels airport has recently opened its newly refurbished section, and it's impressive! Such a positive difference compared to how it used to be, and great for travelers.

The most fantastic thing is that this top end Tech will filter down and yes into more affordable Vehicles, again my bank Manager and Domestic manager say NO.

Great news!
 
France decrees new rooftops must be covered in plants or solar panels. All new buildings in commercial zones across the country must comply with new environmental legislation

Great news for my country ! I'm amazed more Countries don't do this.

Story
Tagline
English-Greek healthy techie living in Biot, France.
Introduction
I grew up in the south-east of France, and then lived for a few years in London and then Paris. I'm glad to be back "home", and I'm loving the life here: gorgeous weather most of the time, lots of opportunities to enjoy the outdoors, and not many people (compared to big cities).

Since I moved to Biot, near Nice, I've changed my lifestyle: eating healthily and lots of exercise (at least three times a week in the local gym). I'm lucky enough to be home-office based, although I do travel for work a lot.

I enjoy cooking, and especially sharing the experience (see my #lunchin15mins tag). I also enjoy working in the sun, so you might spot me on my balcony one day as you drive by!

I've been to this Thai restaurant over a dozen times in the last year, despite it being a good 20 minutes drive from home, and each time I've always been pleasantly surprised. It is a family run business, and has been in the Port de St. Laurent for over 10 years. All of the dishes I've tasted are flavourful and fairly generous portions, however there is one dish that stands out among all, if not all Asian dishes on the Côte d'Azur: the Thai Duck Curry ("Canard laqué au curry Thaï"). That is truly an epic dish, especially when eaten with the rice glass noodles ("vermicelles de riz"), and will leave you scraping the bottom of the dish for the last dashes of sauce.

Great service, reasonable prices and some of the freshest and tastiest sashimi around.

They serve Illy coffee! On top of that, the decor is quaint, the food is fresh and healthy, and the service is very friendly. The café is on a side road just off the main road, so it's quiet and makes sitting outside on either terrace lovely and peaceful.
