Well, it’s only been 16 months since I wrote up part 2 of this trip. One of my goals for this long Christmas / New Year’s break was to catch up on my blogging, and well, there’s only 2 days left of break so I better get going! Looking back through this pictures makes me so happy. When I think about all the trips Drew and I have taken so far in Europe, this is probably still my favorite. It was just exactly what I thought a week in Provence would be like. We visited the Pont du Gard, which has always been on my list of places to see. It’s was kind of odd actually to see a textbook picture come to life. The best part is that it is not walled off anything, you can walk on it and swim under it!
Our next stop was Avignon, which is probably best known to US French students from the song. We also made a half day stop at Arles, which has a lovely Van Gogh Museum. Our last day in Provence ended in Marseille, where we toured the harbour and ate at a wonderful Moroccan restaurant. All in all, it was a perfect vacation. Enough fun stuff to stay entertained, at a slow enough pace to still be relaxing. I’m already planning to come back many many times.
