Fun Monday Vacation

Our host for this week's fun Monday is Allison.

And this is the assignment:

this is the time of year when most of us go on vacations.
Show us and/or tell us about your favorite vacation
- where you went, what you did, etc.
Pictures would be great.
Let's all take a trip around a the world via our FM friends!!

Our favourite holliday destination is Provence,
a region in the South of France.
Three more weeks before we leave.
I can't wait to see the purple lavender fields again,
hear the crickets chirping and feel the sun on my skin.
We are renting the same house every year since 2003,
and when we get there, it feels like coming home.

It has a great kitchen, and that's very important to me.
I love to cook, it's very relaxing to me,
and I love to experiment with the produce from the market.
There are some great farmer's markets that we love to visit
to shop for food. We go to the market in the morning,

enjoy a Pastis on the way back...

... and cook something nice for lunch or dinner.

Or we go on a photostroll into the mountains or the countryside,

and enjoy the gorgeous colours, yellows and blues ...

.... a couple of dots of red ...

Small villages that look like a postcard,
it's a photographer's dream ....

I'm in love with that country, does it show?
Regular readers of this blog already know I guess!

I'm counting the days, three more weeks and we are there.
My blog will not be left empty while I'm gone,
I am making posts for each day we are gone,
sharing stories and pictures from last years vacation there.
Huray for the planner button which makes it all possible!
So if you're interested, add my blog to your reader,
and come with me on a virtual tour of the Provence!
It will be like being there with me, I promise!
And of course it would be very nice
to read your comments when I get back!

This is my idea of spending our holliday.

Have fun!
