Suitcase. Sunseeking In Sicily - Part 2

We quickly discovered that the more we explored Sicily, the more we fell in love. Whilst completely enamoured with our little town of Castellammare del Golfo, each new place we visited, also stole our hearts.

Suitcase. Sunseeking In Sicily - Part 1

From fields of lavender to unlimited gelato. After Provence I made my way over to sunny Sicily in the south; you know, the rock that is kicked by Italy's famous boot! Having travelled solo for a week, it was time for a trip with friends, I met 3 of my best on this wonderful island and so the adventures began...

Suitcase. Provence: Fontaine De Vaucluse, L'Isle Sur La Sorgue & Eygalieres

With quiet sadness, I woke to my last day in stunning Provence. I honestly think you could easily pack up your life and spend 3-6 months living here. I know I could. It really is a region that celebrates all of life's little pleasures; good food, great wine, rendezvous with friends, expansive rolling hills... I would say Provence is good for the soul.

Suitcase. Provence: St Saturnin Les Apt, Roussillon & Goult

Day three arrived and I headed east to St Saturnin Les Apt to check out their local market. This old town is brimming with personality; like a wise grandparent who, despite their age, still oozes style.

Suitcase. Provence: Bonnieux, Lacoste, Oppede & Menerbes

Should you find yourself in Provence, then you simply must get a car. There is so much ground to cover, so many towns to visit, you'd be remiss not to take full advantage. The great thing about the region is that each of the towns are relatively close to each other but they all boast their own personality.

Suitcase. Provence: Le Mas Des Etoiles, Gordes

It is rare that you can travel to a country on the other side of the world and yet still feel as though you are being welcomed by family. Well. It happened to me in Provence.

Rewind to last week and my adventure began in Avignon. After collecting my hire car I hit the winding country roads, heading for a spot on the outskirts of Gordes - Le Mas Des Etoiles. My home for the week.
