Out in the Countryside

Post by Mark

I’m currently in the south of France for my best friends wedding. I wasn’t planning on not posting while here but we’re currently staying out in the middle of nowhere and the internet connection here is the slowest thing ever. It took two tries and 5 minutes just to upload the single picture for this post for example. The closest place to where we are is a small town called Murs with another slightly larger one further away called Gordes. The biggest city is Avignon and thats a full hour drive away.

In hindsight, I should have prepared posts ahead of time for the blog, but I didn’t so sorry about that.

    That’s amazing. Gordes is featured in the movie A Good Year

    What are you doing fighting for internet connection to post while you have that amazing, refreshing green grass and blue sky scenery right in front of you?!

    My advice is to just take pictures, write notes, and leave the online-engagement for the way back home or after you leave this relaxing place at least.

    Enjoy it mark being away from social media and internet is pretty much a blessing at some point.

    I’d give up the fastest internet connection in a heartbeat for that amazing nature’s beauty! Safe travels! 😊

    Stop criticizing him guys. While by the pool, some people read, some people talk and some people like to talk through a blog. And capturing a memory on the spot with a picture isn’t a same as typing it out later. How many times have you left a hotel and said “I’m going to write up my experience” and then weeks later remembered you needed to do it but don’t remember the people anymore…

    Thank you Mark for sharing… Its brings calm us in an overheated area – thank God for no dust – yet!

    I’m confused, why are you apologizing for posting less?
