lavender fields provence

Happy Friday! What do you have in store this weekend? I’ll be in full-on planning mode as we just booked tickets yesterday for a last-minute trip to…Europe!

We’ll be in Munich, Zurich, Paris and London for business and are planning on spending a long weekend in Provence (the part I’m most looking forward to)!

It’s been on My List for some time and while we’ve been lucky to spend a little time in Monte Carlo and Nice, we’ve always wanted to explore more of the countryside. Plus, I’ve never been to Europe in the summer. We typically avoid the high season, but I’m excited to be there at this time and soak up the experience.

Mostly, I want to twirl through lavender fields, frolic in sunflower fields, bike to markets for crusty baguette and fresh cheese, and maybe enjoy a meal or two in a vineyard. But I need your help…

Have you been to Provence? Where should we stay? What should we see? Where should we eat? I’d love any tips or advice. We leave in 6 days (eek!).

Likewise, if you have any recommendations for Munich, we’ll be there for a long weekend as well and would love your tips!

I hope you’ll follow along on our European adventure here! And if you’d like to take a peek at what has me excited for Provence, check out my Pinterest board here.

Happy weekend!
