Authentic France Travel Tip #7 : Spend Quality Time on a Café Terrace


Authentic France Travel Tip #7 : Spend Quality Time on a Café Terrace

If you truly want to experience authentic France, it is crucial to budget time to do absolutely nothing. A very French way of doing nothing is idling away the hours on a café terrace.

Here is the instruction manual;

1. Find a little spot outside with some sun and warmth

2. Park yourself there

3. Order whatever beverage suits your fancy – an espresso, café au lait, a jus d’orange


4. Sit back

5. Sip leisurely

6. Watch the world go by

7. Repeat as required

You simply cannot get more French (or pleasurable) than that. Just look at the French dog below, who although a canine clearly has a strong grasp of what Frenchitude is all about.
