Drop a writer in Paris and then tell her she can't write? It was more than a little frustrating. Now that I am home, after a very long day of traveling yesterday, I can look back through my notes and pictures and give you a quick tour...
From Paris, we traveled to South to Lyon, Avignon, Arles, and several other towns - each with their own unique beauty. We made pastries with french chefs, drank espresso in street side cafes, sampled delicious chocolates and many varieties of red and white wines.
Here - finally - are a few pictures...
|Amphitheater in Arles, France. Built in 80AD|
|Aquaduct in Arles, France|
|The cafe to the left is the Cafe De Nuit - the very same that Van Gogh painted - in the famous painting at right. This is also the same cafe of the poem "Starry, Starry Night" fame.|
|Beautiful town of Chateauneuf De Pope|
|Pastry class in Paris! We made macaroons - delicious!|
|The Eiffel Tower at night - beautiful!|
|A winery in the South of France that has been in the same family since the early 17th century.|
It was a fantastic trip, but not without its ups and downs, which I will share in a later post. Right now, I am going to spend some much needed time with my kids!
