Lost and Found in Arles

Roman Amphitheatre in Arles 

This post is dedicated to  Heather Robinson  from Lost in Arles with huge and heartfelt thank you for the sweetest mentioning of my blog in her post.
I’m so happy I found this blog  by accident and follow it with pleasure as Heather is a very talented writer who lives in a slow pace and harmony with Slow Love Life, as  Dominique Browning an incredibly talented and openhearted writer, described it in her remarkable book and blog of the same name: Slow Love Life, appreciating the beauty of every moment.

I’ve been in Arles for a few hours only, hence to learn what this historical town is about one would better read Heather’s blog but I’m happy to have a few images to share.

Weathered doors have always stories to tell.

Ancient and modern in the sun spot.

Thank you for coming and have a wonderful week.

  1. Thank you so much Natalie! I am so touched by your kind words and very grateful for all of your support. And these images are so beautiful and very much the essence of Arles. But what kills me is that they are recent. I can see from the third photo down (very close to my house by the way) that you were most likely here last summer or a little earlier when the house with the yellow shutters had just been sold. We could have met! Next time? :)

    1. Yes, we've been there last August and having read your blog I was looking at the town with your eyes, but I was to shy to contact you and that day trip from Avignon was kind of spontaneous, it wasn't planed ahead for certain. But thanks, maybe next time...
