France Provence - Buildings, Impressions and Idea's

My recent trip, my first to France, provided me much in terms of reality to what I had dream of or thought it would be and turned it into what it was - Perefect. In principal Provence, on what I saw, lived up to expectations and of course would love some more time to explore more. Provence was a joy to travel in. The French helpful and accommodating. Its back on my bucket list.
