St Remy in Provence at last

We have finally arrived where we will remain for a couple of weeks. Both of us are tired from travel, and enjoying the prospect of a little space to relax and do our own thing – and what a great place to do it! What we’ve seen so far is tantalising.

We left Paris feeling a little nervous about the rail strikes but soon found ourselves hurtling at nearly 300 kph towards the south.

When we got to Avignon and were about to board the train bound for city centre, I realised the car hire places were all just outside the station. Whew! Soon H and I were seated in a bright red Renault – Twingo- and driving on the other side of the road towards St Remy.

Without too much difficulty we arrived at our cute family-run hotel and settled in. I discovered the pool and both of us had a refreshing dip. We tried to ignore the presence of a digger and other workmen all attending to major garden renovations just beside us.

I even found time for a sketch or two.

Then we set off to discover the town of St Remy and have been delighted by its quaint streets and olde world charm. Can’t wait to wander at random tomorrow.

After sipping Coronas in the street outside a restaurant, we’ve purchased Italian deli food and eaten it on our own outside table. Very happy! Good night all! Bon soir.

    That looks SOOOO good. Wring every last drop of pleasure out of every moment! As you slump in a hammock, “I’m relaxing in a hammock… in THE FREAKING SOUTH OF FRANCE!”
