The South of France has turned out to be the perfect destination for a long, relaxed road trip. Why? Because now and then, you’d coincidentally get into small towns like Narbonne or Gruissan that are casually located between the sea and the Pyrenees. Oh dear, even the sound of these names instantly makes me wanna start using French as my primary way of communicating with the world. Where were we, yes, the trip, I’ve switched off my signature see-as-much-as-possible-in-12-hours mode and actually started to breathe in sun, the smell of fresh baguette, blue skies, the salty seaside air and the beautifully French laissez-faire style. Now these few days of over-indulgence and charming drives around in awe hopefully charged enough batteries to make us power through the year.
