It’s been a while since my last travel photo diary and I thought it was about time for another one! I aim to include travel photography in the majority of my outfit posts to make them more interesting but invariably, some travel photos slip through the net. I can’t let them gather dust in my Lightroom catalogue, can I? Perhaps I could, but every inch of my wanderlusting soul would tell me off if I did.
This travel post completes my other dedicated posts about Saint-Paul-de-Vence, the coastline of Menton, Antibes, Crystal Terrace in Monte-Carlo (Monaco), the Jardins Ephrussi de Rothschild in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, the Old Town of Nice, Villa Kerylos in Beaulieu-sur-Mer and the Château de la Chèvre d’Or in Èze. There are a few more (outfit) posts from my travels at the Côte d’Azur lined up to appear on the blog soon, shot in Gourdon, Ventimiglia and more. So in case you’re planning a trip to the French Riviera, just dive into my posts for inspiration and information! A handy tip: through my Travelogue, you can select travel posts according to their location on the map.
We hopped from village to village with a hired car as our voie de transport. It’s the quickest way of transport and it allows you to include impromptu stops whenever you notice a beautiful sight or village that begs further exploration.
So what did visiting over ten villages and towns teach me about the Côte d’Azur? That it’s a place brimming with postcard-worthy sights of the most varied nature: from quaint Provençal villages with cobblestoned pavements, surreal gardens, hotels that still possess the same glorious charm as in the Hitchcock era, houses drenched in glowing Mediterranean colours spilling down hillsides, to a girly pink French villa and even a mysterious Greek one. Every day was different, with just one reassuring constant: the presence (in sight, smell and sound) of that serene azur blue sea that simultaneously empties your mind like nothing else, yet fills it with a legion of new ideas.
