Although the idea of having burgers while you are spending holidays in France may sound totally inadequate, it happens more often than anyone would like to admit. Next to pizza, the all-American burger has become the guilty pleasure of many, and french people are not the exception, in fact they are quite obsessed with burgers, so bistronomized  burger joints are a thing these days in the hexagone. Regis and I have a major love affair with burgers, and even though we prefer to make our hamburgers at home, we also find ourselves constantly seeking for that perfect meat pattie sandwiched in a bun, and I guess we’re not the only ones.

A few weeks ago during a solo day in Marseille I decided to stop by Burger’s Banquet, a burger eatery just  behind L’Opera de Marseille, and few minutes by walk to the Vieux Port. Yeap, prime location.

Fishermen day at Carro Martigues France

May was such a busy month, that I hardly had time to keep up with the blog. June got better; so here are those remarkable experiences that highlighted these two months.

MAY & JUNE BESTS

Stone fruits, strawberries, cherries and other summer treats appeared on early May, we took advantage of that abundance making jams. Strawberry-rhubarb, apricot-kiwi, nectarine-vanilla and even a Rhum arrangé (fruit infused rum) with nectarines, spices, and kumquats from my tree. :)

Impromptu aperitifs at mythic Cercle de St-Pierre, aka Cercle de (pêcheurs) de Carro, a members-only sort of club that has a legendary fame in Marseille region. We indulged over the best ever fried sardines and ballons de rosé.

Tuna steak, chips, sea & sun at Provençal contre le cancer by Fêtes de Carro team. Also barbec, rosé,  longue games (like Petanque but more complicated) and and sea activities to support the fight against cancer.

Morocco's coastal city, formerly known as Mogador

March marked our last days living in Marrakech and our move to La Côte Bleue (France). Feelings are still unsettled. With every new city we pin on our expat life map, others challenges arise. I am still struggling trying to make this place my new home, but overall life is quite pleasant over here (and to live in a home by the Mediterranean sea does help ;) ).

June was a complicated moody month for me. During June we finally felt home in our apartment. There are still things to change or improve but we have learned one important thing during all these expat years: to have tons of patience.

June was a bit of a hazy month for me too. Way too hot days and nights that were spent doing the minimum of physical effort. But was also a month of late evenings spent at our terrace with a glass of rosé on hand.
