You Are Here – France

Allons enfants de la Patrie, Le jour de gloire est arrivé!
Anyone wondering why am I singing La Marseillaise? Guess what? First European country YAH – France was released this week. Someone won’t agree but I think this mug is really beautiful. I really love dark blue mugs, in first place, but this one is special.
Mountains, Mont Saint-Michel, grapes, cheese and wine (back of the mug) – all you need to know about France (according to Starbucks).
Mont Saint-Michel is an island located about 700 yards (600 meters) from land and is accessible in low tide, but surrounded by water in high tide. This is pretty much a rock with the village on it. The biggest building and essential part of the community is Mont Saint Michel Abbey. This place is one of the most popular attractions in France, with approximate 1.3 million visitors per year. Interesting fact – Mont Saint-Michel served as the artistic inspiration for the Disney hit Tangled.
Did you know that France is one of the biggest exporters of agricultural products in the world with wheat, poultry, dairy, beef, and pork being in the top? Also, France is definitely known for it’s wines. Many grape varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah originate from France.

Just a reminder, this is 7th French YAH so far (mind Paris Christmas)
