Avignon, France

 IMG_3636IMG_3560IMG_3509IMG_3608IMG_3619IMG_3559IMG_3624IMG_4282 IMG_3654Avignon was a refreshing change from the big city. Abuzz with mostly French holidaymakers, the vibe is relaxed and carefree. Everyone appears to be in holiday mode.

The key attractions were easily nailed in a day; Palais des Papes (Palace of the Popes), Pont St Bénézet and parts of the city wall, Avignon was chosen to be our gateway to the region of Provence. And Provence feels like a whole different country already with it’s charming hilltop towns, medieval villages and of course, the famous lavender and sunflower fields. More posts to come!
