The peace I felt reminded me of the tranquility that France brings me. It is a country that's lured me three times so far. I plan on returning someday with my daughter and granddaughter.
Here are some pictures I took on my most recent trip, which was several years ago.
|They say that if you can ski in the Pyrenees, you can|
ski anywhere...Needless to say, due to my gawkiness, I
did not ski on any of my trips to France.
|This is a shop in the Basque region, an area that spans both France|
and Spain. They have a distinctive culture--this shop, for example,
has strings of dried peppers hanging on the front exterior wall.
|Okay, I know this is not indicative of what the scenery is like in France, |
but it was one of the coolest sand sculptures I've ever seen.
Everyone needs some time periods when they can relax and slow things down. Quiet times are especially needed if you're an artist (or a parent of young children, or if you have a stressful job or if...well, we all need serenity--NOW).
What do you do to relax? Or, where do you go (either mentally or physically)?
