Road trip: Hiking shoes, polar, we are expecting some cold as our final destination is Orcieres in the Alps, knife, sunglasses, headlamps, tripod and camera, backpack ready. Bottle of red (obligatory), chunks of cheese, goat included of course, fresh baguette, assorted spreads and all the elements necessary for the gin & tonics. Off we go.
Little we knew that crossing the Valensole fields we would find lavender on its prime time, we couldn’t resist the colours, the scenery, the view. We had to stop to admire and take some photos, a quick stop to walk around the town of Valensole, to admire its provençal buildings and colorful doors, have a lavender ice cream and a beer. Later we decided to go back to the fields to stay for the sunset. Good choice! here is how it went.
