If you follow me on Instagram, you will know I was away……….again, in July and August. This post is so late, like six months late. I'm hopeless at keeping a diary, not much better at posting on this blog either as you can see, but at least I will have some reference and photos here. 2015 will be my year of getting back into blogging (she says). Let's just see if I can do it. 

I am very blessed to have some really good friends. One in particular, happens to own a house in south west France. This friend was going over there and asked if I would like to go with her. I didn't even have to think about it, I jumped at the chance.  So I spent the last week of July and the first half of August swanning around France.  2014 has well and truly turned into the year of travel for me.

If you are bored seeing photos of France turn away now.

Beautiful old architectural details

Massive range of wine in the supermarkets

Squid and chorizo, yumm

YUM, what more can I say!

Where we spent quite a few evenings with a glass of wine, and watching the world go by.

  3. We get to enjoy lovely pictures of your last trip while you are away again ;)!!! Looking forward to seeing photos of your lastest adventure. Have a wonderful time.

  4. When I was a teen we spent every summer camping in Provence. I've been back periodically since, but I'd love to just up sticks and move there!

  5. Great ! We are off to there later this year so be prepared for lots of questions when you return from swanning around Africa !! PS. I've vowed to blog more this year, I've been drifting along and it's time I concentrated on something again !!

  6. Everyone needs a friend with a house in France!

  7. Looks like a beautiful place to hang out.
