Henry’s best friend Stan had moved to another town during the previous school year. It’s a sport in Southeast Asia which ( PLAY ) like volleyball, except players use their feet to kick the ball and not their hands. He didn ’ t realise he was out of cash until after he ( ORDER ) his meal.

What is your idea of a perfect weekend? What do you like to do in your free time after the lessons? Just imagine I am going on an exchange school program to France !… That is the reason I like summer the most of all seasons, by the way: rainy or not, it is still a lot of continious free time.

Summer in France equals the South, where the pace slows, the cicadas make a damn racket, and the pastis flows as heavily as the rosé.

Lest I lose you to the “I don’t like anise drinks” bandwagon, hear me out: I don’t either. Or rather I didn’t until I learned that a positive pastis experience centers just as much around the emphasis on experience as it does pastis. The first time I tried the drink started out strong in a tiny backstreet in Marseille—the birthplace of pastis—during the height of summer. However, being too timid to ask how to mix it properly, my clumsy addition of too little water made for a hyper-intense/boozy drink that managed to combine the experiences of sucking on a licorice hard candy and taking multiple half-price well shots in quick succession.

New breathtaking hiking trail in the south of France

  New breathtaking hiking trail in the south of France New breathtaking hiking trail in the south of France The trail will start at Le Rove in Marseille and it offers the most beautiful sea views as it continues to Martigues.One advantage, according to the Lonely Planet, is that the new route will connect with around 17 hikes of between 6km and 24km in length that are already in existence. This makes the hike more appealing to a range of hikers as they can choose shorter or longer routes.It will also be attractive to holidaymakers as each loop is accessible by train. The trail has been designed to link in with existing railway tracks and stations.

I later learned that the 2:1 water to pastis ratio I landed on had rendered the drink into a proportion the French uncharitably dub “yogurt.” Never again. So, I took a little time off pastis, avoided black licorice, and then returned to Marseille armed with a proper French friend. Over the course of one long, sunny-terraced, anise-tinged, heart-to-heart-laced afternoon we healed all that pastis-related trauma.

Another French Classic, This Way


Pastis isn’t made to be drunk in a hurry. Even the process of making the drink showcases its languid tendencies. Pour in a tall glass, one part pastis to five parts chilled water; add ice if you’re not a purist; I’m certainly not. Serve with a bowl of salty chips. The process—a conscious watering down—makes it possible to nurse a pastis throughout the better part of an hour without feeling like you’re drinking melted ice tinged with booze. Plenty of time to play a round of pétanque, dig deep into personal histories with a new lover, open another bag of chips, or simply take note of the way the sun moves slowly across an afternoon.

Why It's Important to Stop Drinking Shots of ACV

  Why It's Important to Stop Drinking Shots of ACV There's a lot to love about apple cider vinegar. Several studies support the claims that ACV helps the body lose weight and debloat. It also doesn't hurt that it's been shown to up energy levels either. And did we mention you can use it to wash your hair?!

Yes, the flavor of anise (and licorice and fennel and coriander and plenty of other herbs) is present but when poured in the correct proportions and out of the correct bottles (I’m partial to the French house Henri Bardouin or the—gasp—California Charbay), it lazes across your palate like a lingering French kiss.

If I can’t turn you on to pastis with a little tongue action, I’ll turn you on with chemistry. The main flavors that tend to compile a bottle—star anise, aniseed, licorice, and fennel—contain an aromatic, organic, oily little compound called anethole. It’s soluble (aka, dissolves) in alcohol, but not so much in water.

At 40% to 45% ABV, a bottle of pastis has enough alcohol to dissolve the anethole and render the drink transparent (or slightly yellow depending on the brand). As water is added, the alcohol and water molecules bind together and push the anethole out to form an army of tiny oil droplets that reflect and scatter light, transforming the once clear liquid to a cloudy, elegant haze. This effect is called louche and it is as magical as it sounds (watch it here).

I’m Breaking Up With Rompers This Summer

  I’m Breaking Up With Rompers This Summer Finding the perfect romper is like finding a decent match on Tinder: it might be out there, but you’re going to have to go through a lot of duds before you find The OneFor me, The One was a $12 find from Walmart that I scored last summer. At first, I was skeptical that a plus-size romper would actually fit well, but when I tried it on it looked ah-mazing—the cut was super flattering and the floral pattern was so pretty. Bonus: the material and waistband were stretchy AF, which made it easier to get in and out of. I pretty much lived in it all season long.

The combined drama of mixing pastis with its insistence that you slow down long enough to savor it is French été in a glass, and with Bastille Day on the horizon, your pastis conversion timing couldn’t be more apt. Even if there is nary a lavender field in sight, throw a bottle on the table along with some glasses, add a ceramic pitcher of cold water and a bucket of ice, and allow summer to trail across your tongue.
