France is a well-known country in Europe. When thinking about France, many people think about Paris. Paris is mainly known for the crowded city centre, a city where you can never get enough of. The city is full of locals and tourists. These people are visiting Paris for the art, food, museums and shopping is included in this trip. But France has a lot more to offer than only Paris. For example, visit a winegarden in Bordeaux where you can taste the best wines of France. When travelling to Bordeaux, please visit all the beautiful castles around you and do not forget to take pictures. Trust me, it is magical.
When thinking about France, you probably think about the French breakfast. This breakfast consists of baguettes, cheese, croissants and coffee. When you have lunch in the afternoon or dinner in the evening, do not forget to order wine or champagne. It will probably be the best wine or champagne you have ever tasted. Also, do not forget to try Croque Monsieur, Escargots de Bourgogne and Quiche Lorraine. Croque Monsieur is like a grilled sandwich with cheese in and on top. Escargots, you love them or you hate them. To try them, be aware of the fact that you are eating cooked snails. Quiche Lorraine is like a pie, mostly filled with cheese and bacon. It has a savory taste.
The people living in France speak mostly French. Sometimes people speak ‘bretons and basque’’. It is not common to speak this language though. France is taught at a lot of schools in Europe, which is a pro when people are visiting French. Sometimes French people have difficulties speaking English, so when you want to communicate with the French it's useful to know the language.
