I was finally able to realized my dream of living in France when I moved here in 2010. I love to read,I love history and road trips. I want to be doing anything outside in the fresh air. I want to have an entire room devoted to a personal library.

  1. All of them look lovely. That could only be a French candy store – so chic! And I was rather intrigued by the fort. It’s a bit like military architecture in the Caribbean, isn’t it, although to me it brings to mind toy forts and castles.

    • The fort actually does look like a child’s toy, Jenny. It is quite small in real life and you’re right, it resembles the architecture in the Caribbean! I hadn’t thought of that. I have no idea how a bunch of men could live and defend the country in that thing! It would make a cute little house for a couple, though!

  2. Fantastic pictures as usual, but I think the candy store does it for me. I could spend all day in there.

  3. Oh man, I think I’ve been to all of these places except the last one… you know what they say, great minds think alike :) Loved traveling with you through these photos!

  4. That has to be the prettiest candy store :)

  5. I was at Fort Saint-Andre at Villeneuve-les-Avignon with my cousin lives there in town last Friday. A beautiful place with great views of the Palace des Papes in Avignon.

    • Hi Michel- The views from the little bench in the garden that overlook the Palais de Papes was where I envisioned myself being forever! I could have camped out there and lived on that spot for the rest of my life. It would well be worth the view I got every day :)

  6. Bonjour Ashley! There’s a little something for you over at my blog ;)

  7. And I just noticed that you received it already ;) Tant pis.

  8. Great photos! I want to go to that candy store!! Mmmm :)

  9. Great photos! Don’t know how I missed this post, but I miss your activity. Are you still in France?

  10. Ashley, where have you gone?
