Southern France (with love..)

After the greatness of Paris, we travelled south on a very speedy train to oddly enough, the south of France.  Hired a car, learned how to drive on the wrong side (right side) of the road, got hopelessly lost in Avignon, & finally found our way to our stunning 17th century farm house B&B accommodation.  The next 5 days were blissfully relaxing, hot, dry, & dusty but we totally loved it.

We now regularly forget what day of the week it is..  Just another side-effect of having an awesome time !

The awesomeness of our stay in South of France was very much amplified by our supremo accommodation.  Neil & Natalene at Memoires de Provence run an amazing place here.  Beautiful house, lovely pool, yummy breakfast, awesome location,  friendly & relaxed hosts =  AMAZING !!   Do yourself a favour & go there instantly !

Paolo i knew looking at your photos would tarnish the misconceived notion i had that my european snaps were good. the one comment i had for people when viewing ours was the photo’s don;t do this place justice. that is not the case here… they do them nothing but justice. with a capital you guys are awesome.
