far flung friday: stinky cheese is my friend

last night my mom and i went to go see "letters to juliet" a mindless, adorable romantic film that wistfully left me hoping i look like vanessa redgrave when i grow up. the other thing it left me with... was travel fever. i used to travel to europe several times a year for work and when work pays your passage over….tacking on a few days to explore is well… inevitable. many an adventure was had in my 20’s on a shoestring budget and the company nickel. and i grew to love the freedom of traveling with no plan. rolling like a stone, i’d rent a car, grab a map and head off to explore. some of my most memorable journeys and cutest b&b finds were the result of spontaneity and fyi...some of the best paninis were found at gas stations.

but it has been 2 ½ years since i was last in europe and that is a serious dry spell. i’d managed to keep the wanderlust at bay but last night’s flick was like um, smoking and then wimpering as your best friend withholds the doritos. i want europe and i want it now please. i want to wander through tiny cobblestone streets, sip lukewarm white wine at outdoor café’s, have picnics in meadows, gorge myself on unpasteurized cheeses, sleep in tiny beds with no ac, pick random items off menus b/c we don’t know the language, wear skinny jeans with chucks, journal, ride trains you can set your watch by and do it all with mr c by my side. so today’s far flung is provence…take a look at the attached hotel and let yourself dream…. http://www.mrandmrssmith.com/luxury-hotels/france/provence/lhotel-particulier/

au revoir friday
