Having just arrived in our recently acquired house in Provence, with just a couple of suitcases and a pillow each, it was time to get started on finding furniture and whatever else we felt we needed along the way – and we were keen! Watch out antique and brocante stores in Provence – here we come!
We left Australia in mid-April and, after a brief stay in Bordeaux, we collected our car and, with much anticipation, drove directly to Provence. We arrived in the south of France with several suitcases and a carton of kitchen and cleaning essentials, then, on the morning of 28th of April, we entered and had the key to, our very own home in Provence!
To one day live in another country, where the sun shines, a lot, the sky seems to be eternally blue, the food is good and the wine even better!
Perhaps not everyone’s dream includes Provence as the destination, but for us it was always France, specifically Provence – that group of departments in the country’s south that collectively make up one of the most visited and travelled places in the world.
