* St. Laurent de Gosse is a tiny village on the banks of the Adour River, where Emilie has spent every summer with her grandparents. They've lived there for 40 years! It’s very close to Biarritz where Napoleon III built his wife a seaside summer palace (pffft) and where Quiksilver hosts surfing championships every year. The beautiful town of Bayonne is right next door, which is where chocolate (YUM!) was first introduced Europe in the 16th century. Just over the French-Spanish boarder is San Sebastian, made famous for it's legendary tapas.
