We picked up our rental car in Nice, brand new Fiat 500 or as we liked to call her, Fifi (feefee). After seeing how people drive in Italy I spent the past month very nervous about this day. Arriving in Nice gave me a lot of relief as the roads were a bit wider and driving was a lot more calm looking. Our goal for this day was to see as much as the Gorge Du Verdon. They say that this area is the "Grand Canyon of Europe." The pictures ...

After visiting the monastery they walked back to the centre of Villeneuve-les-Avignon where they relaxed in the shade of a covered walkway of arches, cooling themselves with some fruit sorbets. Video Girl and Battery Boy then returned to Le Prieure where they did nothing in a very luxurious way.

One of my favourite places I visited in France, Avignon is such a beautiful old city. We stayed at an Air B'n'B rental within the ancient town centre, and were lucky enough to have access to a rooftop patio that looked out over the city toward the Palais de Papes.

An amazing day even with the rain - in fact I think the rain made it all the more special.
Tomorrow a day in Provence - come back sun......
more photos to follow- the hotel's wifi is very slow ...
