How to tour Provence if you are a foodie
I can’t say that I was a culinary fanatic when I first moved to France, but I can say today that France has turned me into a foodie.
Produce, healthy pride, the way to savor, the way to mix and match, the art of eating and drinking – everything flows together making food much more than just a time to eat. It cultural, artistic, pleasurable, and indulgent. The word « indulgent » in France takes a new meaning (at least it has for me). It means you partake in a harmony of senses that please more than just your palate.
Trail walking in Provence for getting fit
Walk Provence! A hiker’s paradise. If I were ever to leave Provence this is the aspect I would miss the most. Yes, I would deeply miss the wine (at a very decent price), the baguette that I pick up daily and the art de vivre at the dining table. However, deeper than those simple luxuries is my appreciation for the landscape and its welcoming atmosphere for the wanderer.
Trails are easily accessible, well-marked (for the most part anyways) and always cultural. How can you not stumble upon traces of life from the Roman era, stone huts from the 17th & 18th century and cave dwellings that were used as secret hide-outs during WWII? The landscape in France continues to be one of the world’s best open-air museums.
