Bonjour mes amis! Et bienvenue to episode 18 of The Struggling Archaeologist’s Guide to Getting Dirty, “Béarnaise Awesome-Sauce!”

You may have noticed that I’ve been gone for the last three weeks (yeah, sorry about that), well it’s because I’ve been in France! So I thought now that I’ve returned to my native soil I would tell you all about my travels and the fun and fascinating things I learned while exploring the beautiful land of baguettes, burgundy, and béarnaise sauce!

This will be a two-part series because there’s just so much to talk about; I wanted to have a whole episode for my time in the French Basque Country as well as my visit to Normandy for the 70th anniversary of D-Day. Don’t worry, it’s not just me talking about the crazy-fun times I had, I really wanted to talk about the people and cultures of these distinct regions and their place in French history.

So this episode is all about Southwestern France, the Pyrénées, the Béarn region, and Basque Country. Enjoy and stay tuned for the next episode in our “Jenny does France” series!
