The last time I went to Provence was in 2009, and I was not doing digital photography just yet, and was still content to use my Nikon F60.
So, I had to spend some time shiffling through quite a large collection of prints and CDs...and that involves a big trip down "memory lane"...
Why taking this challenge now? Well, it was triggered by an article in our local newspaper, The Sydney Morning Herald and it is thirty days to my birthday, so it will give you a chance to save for a gift! Just kidding...
Episode 1 - Our journey starts in Paris
And if you are on your way to the South of France, then you will take the TGV from Gare de Lyon in the 12th arrondissement and debark 2h40mm later in Avignon.
So, it might be a good idea to stay near by and stay for instance at
Pavillon Saint Louis Bastille.
It is close to the station, the Opera Bastille, the Marais is not far away
and there are many buses and metro stations within walking distance.
After a night at the Opera, it might be a good idea to dine in style at the station, at Le Train Bleu restaurant.
There are dozens of more affordable options around - just open your eyes and be prepared for a good time!
