t’s the second day of our vacation and we are back on the road again. The rainy weather has totally disappeared and this is turning out to be a beautiful sunny day. We spend quite some time on the road during this roundtrip, but that isn’t all so bad. Driving through the Provence and seeing the different landscapes is beautiful. Today we are on our way from the coast inland in the more mountainous area. The aim for the day: Gorges du Verdon! (But more about that in later tips).

In total we drove around 1500 kilometre in 10 days. On average 150 kilometre a day is more than enough though. We avoided the big highways and took the more scenic local roads. This means much slower driving, because of the smaller roads and hairpin corners until you get crazy of them, lol. But you will be rewarded with beautiful views and nice little village along the way.

This picture is taken from the car, hahaha, I couldn’t resist to take a picture while we were driving around. I think it gives a nice impression what driving in the south of France is like.
