Recently, I’ve seen quite a few questions about whether it’s possible to visit The Luberon without having to come by car.

It may be … More Car-Free Holidays in The Luberon
It’s just before 7am and after an unexpectedly longer stay in the UK than planned, I am finally en route home and back to Andy in Provence, and if all goes well, he should be waiting for me at Avignon just after 9.15 tonight (hopefully in Fifi, as that would be even more perfect) It’s … More Homeward Bound, London, Paris, Provence

When I left the house at the end of March, we decided to … More Marseille to Apt…. just not quite as planned!
There’s something about travelling that is always a joy. Over the years we’ve come to enjoy the process of getting somewhere almost as much as the actual arrival. Even the 16hr solo drive that Andy tends to do has been much improved with Audible books that help pass the time…. Apparently a great improvement as … More From Exeter to Avignon – a day of 4 cities
Three weeks today we will be heading down to Provence, ready to sign the final documents that will be needed to complete our house purchase, which as you can imagine is something we’re really looking forward to (to say the least!) To be honest we’d originally thought that just one of us would travel down to take over … More Trains Planes, Cars & Bikes
