Day 2 - Lourmarin - a beautiful village town


We travelled from Vancouver on the 19th of April and arrived on the 20th in Frankfurt and then a flight to Marseilles where we rented a car and drove to the mountain village of Lourmarin. We have driven in the evening following our 6:30 PM arrival at the Marseilles airport. We were hoping that it would stay light enough for us to read road signs and arrive at Lourmarin without incident. It did darken but we were fine driving up the Luberon mountain to our destination. Lourmarin will be home for us for the next ten days. From this location we will do little day excursions to towns and vineyards or sit at an outdoor cafe and we will people watch or listen or draw and paint or engage in some French conversation. Here is one of the enjoyable Lourmarin street we drove up and which is typical of our new town. It is a hilly town with lots of walking opportunity up and down the streets.


  1. So glad that you arrived safely!!!
    Hope you update this often while you're away 'cause it will be fun to read about what you're doing.
    I miss you both already!!

  2. I was surprised to see a post already, good on you! Glad you arrived and had a safe trip, looks like a fabulous place to spend time, I am jealous and felt lonely today just because I knew you were not at home.
