South of France–September 2012

Right, well I recently wrote about where the heck I have been, but of course I procrastinated in following up.  So here we go, the first trip!

In September 2012 my husband and I went to the south of France to visit his family for 2.5 weeks.  As usual, I absolutely freaking loved it there and didn’t want to leave.  Didn’t mind coming back to the Netherlands, it was nothing like that, I just love the south of France so much I hate leaving.

This trip was not so much about sight seeing as it was about chilling out.  On many of our previous trips to France we have done a fair bit of side trips and sight seeing.  This time we just wanted to take it easy.  My husband was having a stressful time at work, I was still adjusting to life after my weight loss surgery and we just weren’t in the mood to do a lot.  We were also house/petsitting for my father-in-law and his wife so for a portion of the trip we hung around their place cuddling their dogs and keeping their pool company.  The only exceptions we made were a few days where we got together with other family members.

I decided to leave my cameras home this time and only used my mobile phone to take pics with.  I had become completely hooked on Instagram and decided to have an ‘Instaholiday’.  It was kind of fun and I admit I liked not having to edit photos, even if the quality did suffer.

Rather than posting a long line of photos, I’ve made a slideshow for your viewing pleasure!  If you aren’t sure what something is or what it is you are looking at, just click the photo and you can see the description!

We really had such a great time, as we always do when we go down there. We are already looking forward to our visit later this year!
