Provence: More than Lavender Fields

Last post I made a promise to show you the sights I've been seeing.
Well, where to start?

Let's start with the sight that makes Provence so iconic.

We had a gorgeous ride on our way to Sault, up the mountains and through
the lavender fields.

We also passed Mont Ventoux, the mountain that looks like you're on the moon
and is famous for the Tour du France race.

We did some amazing antique shopping at the market in Isle sur la Sorgues.

Spend a day at the beach. Enjoying the turquoise Côte d'Azur.

And snacked on ice cream. Flavors: tarte Tatin & salted butter caramel. Miam!

We ended that day in Arles. We dined at the restaurant where
Vincent van Gogh painted his iconic 'cafe terrace at night'.

Looks familiar?

We also visited Avignon, Uzès, and Vaison la Romaine.

As for me, I experienced the deliciousness of the vino with all its
glorious vineyards.

And lastly, the stunning sunflower fields where we had to just stop in our car
to take a picture of.
