The fleeting moments of a magical trip through Provence

Back in April, I spent five magical days exploring Provence with my mother and sister. Twenty years ago, I spent a summer living in Marseille and hadn’t been back since. My memories of Marseille weren’t grand. It was a grimy city unlike its neighboring jewels Nice and Cannes. Yet soon I would discover that this city recently named the Culture Capital of Europe for 2013, has grown up and become a sensational place to spend a few days while taking in the splendors and charm of Provence.

Follow me for a fleeting moment in time, while I take you through the picturesque world of Provence….

This post was written in response to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting. I wanted to use my creative juices to do something different and capture my trip in a fleeting moment so I put together this video compilation of some of my Instagram pictures. More detailed posts on my trip to Provence are coming soon. Stay tuned…

    OH, this is so beautiful!! I miss it so much. Your pictures and video capture the beauty perfectly!

    • Thanks! I’m still experimenting on how to do it right. It took me forever to get it right and now I will work on the music part! 🙂

  3. I’ve spent some time in Provence, and each adventure gave me more to love about all of its many facets. I really like your perspective on the first image. It gave me the feeling of the wealth of the city’s offerings and European beauty. Now I’m off to view your video.

    • Yes isn’t Provence beautiful! We had so much fun the day we did the village tours. I will post on that later on as I got so many pretty pictures!

  12. Too bad that we are giving France a miss this year for our annual summer holiday. I simply love the country and its seemingly endless charming places to explore. 😉
