AVIGNONE : MAGIC LIGHT


It's unbelievable but this is just the end of our first day on #ProvenceOnTheRoad, and I've already made 4 posts about, wow just now I realize how intense this trip was!
I've decided to start to publish every day this week a piece of our journey, so every morning you guys will be able to discover a new place, a new destination and a new look!



We arrived in Avignone just in time for the sunset, and oh, you know my insane passion for this moment of the day! I love seeing the cities wrapped by a golden blancket, it's magical moment and Avignon showed up in the best way in that golden light.
These days were really really warm, like crazy! In this kind of days I want to wear something like, and in natural matereals, as cotton, silk ecc....

CASTELLAINE / GOURDON


Hello hello guys! While I'm packing my bags for a new trip, here I continue my diary of my tirp in Provence  made a few weeks ago.

We left San Remo, one of the Italian cities closer to the border of France, and we've been around about a week. We spent the first day on the way to Avignon, we passed by through the fields of lavender and sunflowers, and crossing the wonderful Verdon and the towns of Gourdon and Castellaine.


Buongiorno buongiorno ragazzi! Mentre sto facendo i bagagli per un nuovo viaggio, qui continuo la mia storia del viaggio in Provenza fatto alcune settimane fa. 
Siamo partiti di Sanremo, una delle città italiane più vicine al confine della Francia, e siamo stati in giro circa una settimana. Abbiamo passato il primo giorno nel viaggio verso Avignone, passando per i campi di lavanda e girasoli, e incrociando il meraviglioso Verdon e le città di Gourdon e Castellaine.


We stopped for an hour or so in Gourdon, walking trough its tiny streets and admiring the wonderful view from the city....

LAVENDER FIELDS

And here we are to continue our trip to Provence. The main mission of our first day was finding the huge lavender fields so common in Provence (hmmm, not so much!). in july I've started to seen so many photos of lavander fields on instagram that I thought was really absurd we never went there since it's not so far from Sanremo, the city where we spend most of our summer days.

Find the lavender was my mission!


Ed eccoci qua a continuare il nostro viaggio in Provenza. Lo scopo del nostro primo giorno era trovare le tanto note distese di lavanda. Ne avevo viste cosi tante su instagram che mi è parso veramente assurdo non esserci mai andata essendo non cosi distanti da Sanremo, la città dove passiamo la maggior parte della nostra estate.
Trovare la lavanda era la mia missione!



We leaved Sanremo for Provence in at early morning, the aim of the day was to find the lavender and arrive on time in Avignon, before diying of tiredness.
Our trip was super last-minute and often happened to us to have no idea where to sleep the day before we got in the place.
To find the lavender I downloaded a map from the internet, but oh, I do not recommend it at all, because my map was a giant purple stain which started from Grasse and came up in Aix en Provence, when in fact we found lavender only around Valensole, and that explains the reason why all people are going there.
Once in Valensole...
