We have been travelling now for several weeks in France. It is a country with such diversity and we are sometimes surprised by the differences after as little as two hours in the car.

I hope these photos do some of it justice.

Our journey in France began in Menton on the French Riviera where we learnt if you are not careful on the roads you can end up back in Italy 3 times in one day! Then we headed to the Luberon in Provence. And the lavender was just starting to bloom! Our next stop was in Peycelsi one of the Bastide towns in the SW. Close to Carcassonne. Then on to Beynac in the Dordogne where we spent time with my nephew and his wife. I love the Dordogne, great food, if you like Foie Gras of course, canoeing, biking, walking, farmland, and castles. Heaven. And now we are in one of the valleys of the Massif Central. Old volcanic region which has been eroded by glaciers. A geographers and walkers dream. And the weather is perfect for walking off some of those croissants.

Fantastic photos again - I love the one of the lavender with the leading lines. It sounds wonderful being in the volcanic mountains - a geographer's paradise indeed. Continue to have a brilliant holiday. Love Franny
