From City Girl to Country Girl...

I arrived VIRTUALLY in the Provence region of France on Friday afternoon. I have always want to visit this area since reading all of Peter Mayle's books... so I decided to board a train heading south... I know you probably all thought I was driving down in that great blue sports car... but noooo... that was just my ride to the train station... much better than a taxi... anyway... the train ride down was nice and the weather when I pulled into the station was lovely warm with a bit of rain... I went to rent a car to drive around... but then I saw this car... it was screaming take me and it had keys in it... sooooooo... here I drive in this FAB PINK sportscar...Driving around from village to village looking at this glorious part of the country...

I was scouting cafes to paint... and admiring architecture... I have snapped some fab photos (via The Most Beautiful Country Towns of Provence)

After a long day I settled in for the night in this very welcoming Bed and Breakfast (via Victoria magazine September 2001) with BLUE decor... On Saturday I met the lovely Vicki Archer, author of My French Life... I pick her up in my PINK car and we pop over for lunch and laughs at Bistro d' Eygalieres (photos via Victoria magazine September 2002) eating some yummy food and drinking great wine for VIRTUALLY hours... Vicki was a delight... you must visitor her blog and get to know her...

She told me about The Palais des Papes a historical palace in Avignon, southern France, one of the largest and most important medieval Gothic buildings in Europe. It sounded like a must see... sooooo Sunday I visited this beautiful palace... Look at the amazing paintings... to see them up close... visit HERE

After our tour we enjoyed a FAB Easter brunch with some adorable ducks... I do hope everyone had a lovely Easter...
