My first time in northern France in the region of Boulogne was good fun. Though the trip was solely for the purpose of golf, the little town of Wimereux proved to be quaint and very homey (and the golf course superb!). As all French villages and seaside towns go, it had that lovely holiday feel to it. Lots of narrow streets, old buildings and locals to capture on film. The coast is a great place to have a stroll and to admire the old fort which guards France from the north as well.

By night, this seemingly quiet town bursts into life with several tasteful bars and pubs located conveniently in the centre and a stones throw from most little hotels and B&B’s. I don’t need to mention that the cuisine was superb. Try the Hotel du Centre restaurant which serves authentic French dishes and gorgeous wines. Only a short 2 hour drive from nearby cities of Bruxelles and Lille and with the English cannel tunnel only 20 min away, it’s definitely a place for a short weekend trip with friends or family and of course Lomographers!
