So I guess I didn't feel like blogging while away, sorry! I did instagram a lot, though.
We returned from our week-long holiday in the south of France just yesterday, and MAN I am filled with conflicted emotions. On one hand I'm brimming with gratitude for having experienced literally the best time of my life surrounded by natural and man-made beauty, on the other I'm a bit down about returning to normality. Belgium is decidedly lackluster after France (seriously, even the roadside restaurants and bathrooms are great in France), and returning home after a trip always comes with an avalanche of chores that need to be done. SO MUCH LAUNDRY.
Anyway, for now I just want to make an effort to focus exclusively on the positive feelings. Thank god for photography, making it possible to keep beautiful memories clear and bright long after your suntan has faded. I just wish something similar existed for other sensory impressions. The Ardèche-Drôme-Provence region we visited will forever taste like peaches and smell like lavender in my mind.
I'll have more posts up with specifics on the things we did and the places we visited, but today I'm just sharing some general impressions of our Ardèche-Drôme holiday. Enjoy!
