On life

Photo diary #5: August 2016 (part one)

My photo diary this month is huge, so I’ve split it up into 3(!) parts. I went on holiday for three weeks, to France and Spain, and I made hundreds of photos. Too many for one photo diary. In this first edition, I am in the South of France. Enjoy!

On our way to the sun!

August-photo-diary-54First stop at my boyfriend’s parents house in France, about 700km from home. Perfect first stop and it’s so beautiful there.

August-photo-diary-53The perfect welcome!

August-photo-diary-52We have arrived! Clear-blue skies and 30 degrees. Yay! This was our hotel in Cassis, where we stayed for one night. August-photo-diary-50 August-photo-diary-49Cassis is really beautiful (and really busy!).

August-photo-diary-48August-photo-diary-46The only downside was the sea water: it was really cold (about 16 degrees). Apparently it has something to do with the wind. I’m not a fan.

August-photo-diary-45 August-photo-diary-44Breakfast at the hotel: fruit and coffee. My ideal breakfast.

August-photo-diary-43Next stop: Cavalaire-sur-Mer. By day.

August-photo-diary-41And by night.

August-photo-diary-42This is one of my favorite spots in Cavalaire. It’s near a beautiful hotel called Le Calanque where we had lunch and swam in their beautiful pool. The views are amazing.

August-photo-diary-40August-photo-diary-38My favorite holiday gadget: a waterproof phone case. It’s so cool, you can take pictures and film underwater. It works really well.


August-photo-diary-37After Cavalaire we stayed in Villefrance-sur-Mer at a hotel called Le Versailles, which I highly recommend. The rooms are big and all have a gorgeous sea view. The hotel also has a pool and a great buffet breakfast. We stayed at this hotel for almost two weeks.
