We’re in Avignon today, starting with the Papal Palace, a grand and very solid-looking building. It’s still baking hot – must remember to drink lots of water.

Maybe we have a hint as to the origin of Séverine’s blog’s name?

On the way back from the Camargue, we stopped for a quick look around Tarascon castle, which is in very good condition and even has a proper moat.

Arles is full of ancient buildings dating back to Roman times. Each time you turn a corner there’s a great photo just waiting to be taken.

You’ll have to take my word for it until we get back home with the digital camera: this was taken with Eve’s camera-phone.

Pont du Gard

We’re on holiday in the south of France, and today we’re visiting the Pont du Gard, a Roman aqueduct over 2 millennia old. Very impressive. It’s sunny and about 32C – glorious but it makes walking thirsty work. Luckily there’s a café, and I’m drinking a cool beer as I type this 🙂
