Valensole, France ~ 8th & 9th July

Monday 31 July 2023

 Had a great weekend in Provence around the lavender region of Valensole, France 8th & 9th July ..

Flew with EasyJet to Marseille Airport which was cheap enough then hired a car with Europcar which definitely wasn’t cheap £388 for two days .. Pants down ..

It’s only an hours drive to Valensole then spent the day driving round to the many lavender fields looking for my sunset location which I found on the Plateau to return to later ..

My hotel was Les Chambres d hotes de Valensole through checked in etc and a short drive back for sunset …

Sunrise was from the main D6 road near Terraroma and with plenty of other people with the same idea getting a model in your image was fairly easy ..

Nice weekend away a bit more expensive than I expected it to be still better than staying at home ..

Vienna, Austria ~ 1st & 2nd July

Tuesday 18 July 2023

 Spent the weekend of 1st & 2nd of July sightseeing in Vienna, Austria ..

Flew out early Saturday morning with Austrian Airlines and then travelled around with trains and the underground going to all the major locations in the city …

Unfortunately some of the locations were closed like office buildings for spiral stairs etc ..

Getting around was so cheap with a city pass but forgetting to buy a train ticket back to the airport and getting fined €105 wiped that out …

Enjoyable trip …
