After Burano, Italy, I began this quest to search for the most colorful places in this world! So far, I had found and visited the villages in Cinque Terre.

Colmar not only being one of the most colorful towns in… Read More My quest to search for the most colorful places in this world continues in Colmar, France!
Itinerary for today: lavender, lavender, and lavender fields! That was the reason we came to Provence in the first place – lavender fields! In the past few days, we visited many Luberon villages and there were patches for lavender fields here and there but not the ones that looked like in screen savers – endless field… Read More Endless Lavender Fields
Continuing with exploring more Luberon Villages as much as we could. We woke up, had breakfast at 7 am, and checked out by 8 am.

We left Arles… Read More Carcassonne – Back to the Middle Ages

After Croatia, we headed to southern France just in time for lavender fields! Our flight was at 1:05 PM connecting at Munich (delayed again so our original 1.5 hours connection time was barely enough) and we landed in Marseille at 6 pm instead of 5:15 pm! My husband asked me what time do you expect… Read More Starry Night at Arles, France
