roadtrip through provence

After a sad goodbye with Leanne & Nate, they headed back to Boston while Jimmy and I picked up our car in Nice and hit the road. Although we missed peak lavender season by a few weeks the scenery was stunning and we strolled around Aix en Provence and Gordes before settling in Avignon for the night. I loved the country houses, the farmers markets, the medieval castles, bridges and walled cities.  In true road trip style we got completely lost, eventually found our way, stayed in a completely random apartment where our bed was about as comfortable as sleeping on a yoga matt but we loved it anyway.

It was August so the villages were strangely quiet and we'd walked along deserted lanes, stare into closed storefronts and just took it all in.  My favourite part was watching the sun set over the Rhone river, enjoying a 3 course meal with some of the best food I've had in ages and a bottle of wine with my love. Doesn't get much better than that...
