Windows from Seillans

Now that autumn is here and it is foggy and rainy outside I think of the wonderful summer holiday we had this year. I think of the warm and colorful little villages in Provence with all the narrow streets and stone steps and old wooden doors and of course the windows. So to days post is summer memories from Provence, three different windows from the little village of Seillans.

Have a nice week!

Lavender fields – Valensole

A really beautiful place to visit when in Provence is Valensole. It must be one of the most photographed spots on earth. I guess you have seen beautiful photos of the large, dark purple lavender fields with a lonely tree or a stone cottage. It is an amazing spot with the color purple and the strong scent of lavender. I hope one day to go back and spend some more time in these fields and take some amazing photos. For now just enjoy my summer memory from the Lavender field in Valensole.

St Paul en Foret

The summer house we rented this summer was just outside a little french village named St Paul en Foret. One day we went for a walk to visit this little village. Some of the houses looked quite old and the photos in todays post are from this little walk. I fell in love with some of the details on and around these houses.

Seillans – a little village in Provence

Seillans is a beautiful village in Provence about an hour drive from Grasse. The little village is a nice place for a photo safari. A lot of stone houses, narrow streets and a church from the 12th century. There are also two good restaurants worth a visit; Chez Hugo and La Glorie de mon Pere. Both restaurants have  very good food.

Here are some photos from my visit to Seillans:

Mini trip to Amsterdam

I loved Amsterdam. It is a wonderful city and it is perfect for me because I am not very fond of going to different museums and other tourist attractions. My favorite thing to do is walking around and watch everyday life, relaxing on a little cafe and admire the architecture. Her are a few pictures from my mini trip to Amsterdam.

Amsterdam – bicycle

Visiting Amsterdam was fun. In Norway people use their bike for training and they have new fancy bikes. In Amsterdam the bikes are used for transportation and the bikes look quite old fashioned and they are so cool. The bikes are like jewelry and creates aesthetic scenes in the city.

Ice

Last weekend at Ble (up in the Norwegian mountains) the winter was just around the corner. Small ponds was almost frozen and some was frozen all over.

Lofoten

Lofoten is an adventure. The landscapes with high mountains all around and deep valleys with small fisher villages. I’ve been there some years ago and I will return, for sure.

Vegaøyan – The Vega archipelago

We have been to the Vega islands on holiday a several times. My husband is born there but this is not the only reason why we like to spend time there. The island is very beautyful with beautyful beaches, landscapes and some small mountains tops too (about 700 m). It is also listed on the Unesco World Heritage List. This summer we spent a week in Our family cabin on the island. Beeing in a beautyful place one must take som pictures and here are some:
