Journey to Provence (Day 3)

We drove to the Citadelle de Sisteron, a landmark of Haute Provence. It has an underground stairway, carved into a rock, to connect this fortress to the city’s gate. We didn’t go inside the Citadel this time, so there’s not much more that I can share about it. But it was a hot day, luckily Kikou is small enough to seek some shade underneath a bush. We later went into Sisteron to cool off.


Journey to Provence (Day 2)

We drove towards Lac du Sautet and were welcomed with a stunning lake view. France really seems to be blessed with beautiful, turquoise lakes!

We dined and spent the night around this lake, located in the Isére region of Rhone-Alpes. The beauty of the French Alps cannot be put into words.


Journey to Provence (Day 1)

Our first road trip in France was to Provence.;  known for their lavender fields in summer.

For the trip, Clément’s parents lent us their utilitaire or commercial vehicle as Google translates it as. We put a mattress, some pillows, sheets, blankets, clothes and Kikou into the back and started our trip on the evening of the 16th of July 2016. I can’t recall who thought of doing our roadtrip like this, but I’ll let you guys know now, it’s how we would continue doing our trips around Rhone-Alpes.

We drove for an hour, or two, maybe 3 maximum until we reached a lake for the night.
