I created a ‘photgraphy’ album on my phone the other day, to remember all the fun trips and memories of the places I have travelled to. Below are some of the best pictures from those trips, compiled into a ‘photo album’ if you will. Literally, a snapshot of the place and atmosphere.
Provence, a region in southeastern France bordering Italy and the Mediterranean Sea, is known for its diverse landscapes, from the Southern Alps and Camargue plains to rolling vineyards, olive groves, pine forests and lavender fields.
Anecdote: I remember the hot french sun and being attacked by wasps by the lavender!
Bonnieux is perched on a narrow, steep ridge, rising up from a flat plain to the 12th-century “Eglise Haute ” church at the top with its high, pointed steeple. The village is full of picturesque old streets, fountains, shops and Medieval walls as well as cafés and restaurants.
Behind the village, on the crest of the Luberon Nature Park, the three communes (Bonnieux, Menerbes and Lacoste) and the forest of cedars from the Middle-atlas stretch out over 250 hectares.

A Nordic island nation, defined by its dramatic landscape with volcanoes, geysers, hot springs and lava fields. With massive glaciers in Vatnajökull and Snæfellsjökull national parks. With most of the population living in the capital, Reykjavik, which runs on geothermal power, it is smaller than the harbour town of Southampton in the UK!
