More Sun

Arles from the Arena

We spent seven weeks last summer in Northern France. Man it was an awesome time. None of us wanted to leave! Well, almost true. The thing about Normandy is that the weather is very much like Portland—except that Juneuary lasts through July and August. We were so desperate for sun that we spent a week in Barcelona.

This summer will be different. Much warmer. No, not Portland, but two months in Arles, in Provence. Yes, we are once again doing a home exchange, this time in the city in which Vincent Van Gogh famously spent his final years. Nice, warm, Mediterranean weather.

We can’t wait.
