We were picked up from our hotel by Jacques at 9am, having booked online just the day before. A very comfortable van that took our four and another honeymooning couple from New Delhi on a day of delight and discovery. Our day built as we first explored a quaint village, Isle of something, then headed to the Fountaine de Vaucluse, a place that had icy cold water flowing, up the hill then to view the wealthy Gordes, where we also coffee'd and had a sticky beak. Our next stop was my favourite one, Rousillon. That village had personality, colour and was just a great community (albeit the brave winter souls). We lunched there sitting on a tiny back verandah overlooking a picturesque valley. We were learning so much from Jacques we invited him to lunch with us, where we learnt so much more about France, the French, their culture and family life. Les Boux was the next stop, which on approach looks like the whitewashed mountaintop village of some 23rd century movie set depicting a middle ages fortress. It was stunning to see and to walk through, though to me not as engaging as the colourful Rousillon. We made Pont du Gard in time well before sunset and just stood in amazement at the grandeur, technology, beauty and innovation of the Romans. A sign tried to convince us an olive tree was over 1000 years old. Not sure how they know that, no one around that day was that old. We had a full day, a most informative day and learnt heaps. Jacques has whet our appetite to return to this part of the globe and see more.
