St Remy & Arles

Our last full day in Provence, we decided to head south toward Arles.  Vincent VanGogh lived in Arles and some of his most famous paintings came out of the small town.  

Though both towns were beautiful and rich with history, I didn't connect to them as much as I hoped I would.  I don't know if it was the warmth of the Luberon, the charm of the hill towns or the delicious meal we had the night before.  St. Remy and Arles just didn't seem as welcoming.  Or perhaps I was just protecting myself from the inevitable.  In just two short days, our trip would be over and I'd be leaving the place that had stolen my heart.

Seeing spots that have hosted so much history must have been fascinating. If those walls could talk,no?
