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!

  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. πŸ˜‰
