“Traveling- it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller”- Ibn Battuta
I’ve just returned from the South of France and a quick visit to Nimes, Aigues Mortes, and Les Saintes Maries de la Mer to finalize the details for the October, “Travels for Self-discovery” trip. This area’s symbols. legends, and secrets inspired my books and writing. From the Camargues’ anchored heart to Nimes’ Temple of Diana, the air of the South sparkles and whispers of creative possibility.
The hotel in Nimes will be near the coliseum. It’s run by a French woman and her English husband. I love the comfortable, thick pillows, and the coziness. The other places are gorgeous too – like the Villa Mazarin in Aigues Mortes. I hope you’ll like them. Plus I found some fun and funky French restaurants to keep you tantalized during your travels.
The seaside images come from Les Saintes Maries de la Mer. The red interior of the dining room is at La Villa Mazarin in Aigues Mortes. And who could resist the Black Sara of Kali (revered by the Roman people – gypsies) and a green Deux Chevaux car?
Unlike tourism, this trip is designed with themes and stories from the places to take you deeper into the explorations of the land. We’ll meet up daily and I’ll encourage you to explore some sites on your own so you’ll enjoy the excitement of discovery and adventure. We’ll meet up to touch base during the day and share experiences. This will be a wonderful opportunity to explore the energy of places, discover what appeals to you, and even learn more about your dreams and how they may speak to you.
