Maybe this time I’ll actually do it.
Tomorrow I fly to Paris via Dallas, then TGV to Avignon and rental car to Uzès, where I’ll meet Pauline and Steve at the village house we’ve rented for a week. Frank and I had lunch on a very rainy day in Uzès several years ago on our way from the Dordogne to Provence, the only time I’ve been there. I’m planning to love it!
At the end of the week I’ll drive to Lourmarin for a few days in a B&B, then to Bonnieux for 5 nights in Kathy and Charley’s new apartment.
TGV from Avignon back to Paris for one night at Hotel Muguet, then fly home via Dallas.
This year I couldn’t find flights in and out of Marseille with reasonable layovers (not too short, not too long, get me back to Sacramento the same day) and price, so I opted to fly in and out of Paris. I probably should have allowed a few more days in Paris, but even one afternoon and evening will be a pleasure.
