Bonnes Vacances!

Walking around Paris in late July you see many of the shops closed with signs in the window reading:

 Reouverture a Septembre.  

Bonne Vacances.

No date.

Just Septembre.

It sure makes the French life/work balance seem pretty cushy.  Especially when you can board the TGV in Paris and just 4 and a bit hours later arrive here:

Collioure is a small French Coastal village located just minutes away from the Spanish border on the Mediterranean side.  It is where Adam and his family vacationed several summers about 15-20 years ago.  It had a special place in his heart and he’d be forever wanting to re-visit it.  I totally understood the magic…..

Collioure, you haven’t seen the last of us!
