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.
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.
