Bright start to the morning after a good night's sleep. A light breakfast and then off to explore Arles. It's a fairly large town. It has a Bull Ring, an Roman amphitheatre and it gave van Gogh a home to paint his Sunflowers. He shared his flat with his mate, Gaugin before they fell out and Goghy went short sighted! ( he cut his ear off and so his specs wouldn't stay on - boom boom) We didn't ...
... at the wheel, we made good time and we arrived in Gordes at our luxury B&B just after midday. Hot, hungry but thankful to be here, we dumped the car and walked the 800mtrs or so down the dusty dry road into Gordes town.

The town is also famous for Pont St-Benezet, a bridge that clearly wasn't built well considering it was ...
... outside Rome. Right in the center of the town, it (again) was pretty amazing to think of it being there 2000 years ago. We ate dinner 100 feet from it; probably the worst meal I've had here, but still, you can't beat the atmosphere!
Next we went a little east to the "Luberon" section of Provence. Isle Sur le Sorgue was another old town similar to St Remy where we couldn't eat because it was mid-day, so we had beer instead :-) and ...
