Bound for Provence

Oh, the Places We See will be blank for a while.  We’re finally checking off a few places in Italy and France we’ve always dreamed of seeing:  Lake Como in Italy, a Viking River Cruise from Lyon to Avignon, a week in Provence seeing Les Baux, Aix-en-Provence, Rousillon, and the coast from Cassis to Nice.  Well, that’s the plan, at least.  Who knows where the trip will take us since we’ve been known to veer off the charted path just to see another field, an interesting abbey, or a tiny town with cobblestone streets.

We don’t blog on our trips — just trying to enjoy and keep up with the guides!  But we post daily here:

So much to see.  So little time! But join us online when you can.

  1. Sounds like a promising plan and yes veering off plan is always part of the fun. But that is a nice serving of eye popping architectural delights coming your way. We will look for you on instagram. As you may know, any good French child reads his bodyweight in Asterix comic books (and has for the past several decades). One of the most memorable Asterix book was about the discovery of unique food in each town where his journeys took him around France. Hope you will share that one memorable bite that is the specialty of the towns you visit in France. Have a wonderful time!!!

    If you have time in Provence, check out Arles. It is a lovely small city for a stroll and has a Roman amphitheater and a coliseum. Enjoy your travels.

  3. I love that you make a point of just enjoying your travels – not spending them entirely locked onto your laptops! Great examples for the rest of us, have fun : )
