Vivre Provence





I got tagged by Adam whose blog I read without fail (apart from the occasional lapses). I really had to blog-hop to understand how this works....! Quite easy once you see the sample meme!

Well really, I'm off to perform my umrah (pictures above were taken last May by wifey) with parents, my aunts and uncles (18 of them) in exactly 24 days from today. Mecca and Medina really do not qualify for the purposes of this tag as I'm really going there!

Thought about where I really want to go next and few places came to mind....Santorini, region of Provence, Ubud, Petra, Ulan Batur, Jerusalem (Al-aqsa mosque and the Dome of the Rock to be specific), Ayers Rock, Istanbul....and many many other interesting places which will take ages for me to list down!


***Place your 2-3 paragraphs of where you want to go here***


For this tag, I really have chosen the region of Provence in Southern France as my desired destination. I fell in love with this place after reading Peter Mayle's, international bestseller, Encore Provence (of course one of his books A Good Year was recently immortalised in a movie acted by Russel Crowe).


My itinerary would be something like:-


Visiting a perfumery in Haute Provence (L'Occitane products are produced here) and experience a valley fill with lavender, sage, roosemary etc.....

Traipsing along in Provencal markets of St Remy-de-Provence, St Tropez, Arles etc sampling fresh produce.

Sampling breads of different kind from different boulangerie.

Siestas in the open on a hammock basically...do nothing!

Watching truffle bargaining/transcations at Carpentras market.

Driving around the region without any plan and just follow what your heart says!


Man, I can go on and on....But dreaming is free, right?
