    My husband and I visited Provence on our honeymoon, 10 years ago. We were planning to enjoy a flight on a hot air balloon, but due to the Mistral winds, the flight had been cancelled. The activity is high on my ‘bucket list’ for our next trip to this beautiful travel destination.

    When I was a young girl of 22 I went to Montpelier to visit my friend who was an exchange student. We travelled by train, first south to Palavais, then North to Paris stopping in Dijon, Orange and Avignon. I am 56 now and would love to re-visit those places with my daughter who is 23. I loved Avignon and if nothing else I vow to return some day.

    To be sitting on a breezy veranda, sipping white wine, and taking in the beautiful fields of lavender, the aromas, and just communicating with the spirit and peace of my surroundings…that would be a relaxing pause, away from the whirlwind of life!!!


  46. User: Julia Roark

    I’d love to spend a day in a village market. Bread, cheese, fresh vegetables, flowers, handmade lace, local wine, lavender sachets, scarves, all would be overflowing my basket. Then a stroll into the countryside to picnic under a Provence blue sky. Sigh…

    This is truly a challenging question. So many places on my “must see” list. Notre Dame Cathedral would be a definite place along with hoping to stay at one of the castles. Anything where we could stay for a while, enjoy the local cuisine and drink in the history.

    The delta flatlands of the Camargue, usually described as “melancholic”. I am told that the endless stretch between the two arms of the Rhône is enthralling.

    I miss French bread, REAL French bread! I lived in France until I was 11. de Gaulle was president, and hated Americans, so that was tough. We moved to the States in ’65. I’d love to go back and be able to enjoy it. The lavender fields would be at the top of my list! The 1st painting I ever sold was of the lavender fields, I regret that I didn’t take a photo of it.
