Provence: All the Details

One of my theories about travel is that the very best sights can't be found in a Guide Book. There's no app or map or "Best Of" list that will help you find them. The texture of a stone wall, the way the sun dapples a courtyard, or the play of light and shadow on the peeling plaster of a facade...










Spending the time to really see a place by savoring the details... that's something I hope I always remember to do in my adventures- both far away and in my own neighborhood.

I've actually been away on an other trip these past couple weeks! I can't wait to share all the details with you. I'll be back next week to see if you can guess where in the world we've been this time.

Have a wonderful weekend, friends! Don't for get to get a little lost in the details. XO

  3. Hello Jeanne
    I can feel the sunlight and warmth on my shoulders as I look at your images of a memorable trip. You are so right, the apps and guide books cannot compete with a curious mind.

    Have a wonderful weekend

  7. I completely agree. I took pictures of the prettiest details in New Orleans (French inspired) that I'm planning to share on my blog too. Can't wait to see the details from your current exotic trip.

  9. You are a globe trotter, my dear, and we can't wait to see where you've been. We so agree with this post and remember our daily walks in Paris where we'd get lost in the details. Hope your week is off to a great start!

  10. Yes! Yes!! Yes!!! So true. I love to turn the GPS off and just drive, get lost, and get out of the car to explore all the details. Then turn the GPS back on to get home :) Can't wait to hear about your other trip, Jeanne.
    Cheers,
    Loi

  11. You lucky little traveler!!!

    I so agree....the divine is the details and they are best discovered by being open to the moment and those that can rarely be planned. Usually it's something you see on your way to see something else that captures your eye.

    Can't wait to hear where you've been!
    xoxo Elizabeth
