Kimberly & Ben

France_Real_honeymoon-Stories-1.jpgFor Kimberly and Ben, their shared love of wine, food and classical art made France a dream honeymoon destination. Trip highlights include a trip to Avignon and its medieval walls, market visits in Vaison-la-Romaine, exploring lavender country, and a week of long city walks around Paris.

"The weekly market was a riot of sounds, smells, and colors," Kimberly said. "Stalls selling lavender, Provencal cloth, saucisson, olives, honey, clothing, and countless knick-knacks stood side by side. We also picked up some perfectly ripe little strawberries and one darn fine peach. With this collection, we found a picnic spot in front of a church and devoured our bounty."
