Le Barcares was pure paradise. It's perhaps not the most beautiful place we've ever been to - we do come from the Philippines after all. But nevertheless, being in Le Barcares was a real pleasure. It was the sun, the sea, and of course, the food. Which is perfect for a foodie like me.

Now that it's been a month since we got back from our summer vacation and that the awful rainy weather is back, I can't help but think about the wonderful days we spent in the south of France last month. Being reunited to the sea after 3 long years was just amazing. Although our trip didn't go as well as we had hoped, we had a really wonderful time. I'm happy to be back at home and working, but I can't help but think about our next holidays.

After driving an hour and a half, we were finally at our second stop - Le Musée du Bonbon Haribo / Haribo Museum in Uzès, France. As you can probably imagine, this stop was for our daughter, SO. Since her birthday was on the last day of our trip, MR and I decided to spoil her with surprises during the trip, including this one.
We're not generally big on breakfast - a cup of coffee or hot chocolate will usually suffice. But with the travelling we were going to do today, we agreed that it was best we had more than hot liquid in our tummy.

When I was planning our holidays, the first thing I did was rent an accommodation by the beach. I looked around by the Mediterranean Sea area and finally booked a mobil-home in Le Barcares. The drive going there is about 9 hours and I knew I wouldn't be able to do it in one trip. So originally staying in Saint-Marcel-les-Valence was supposed to be a mid-way resting stop to stay the night, but when I saw that it was close to the city of Valence, I thought we could do a little visiting (click here for the post).

After almost 6 hours of driving, we finally arrived at our first stop - Valence. Taking the highway was easy, up until we got to Lyon where suddenly there were more cars on the road. This is after all the highway to vacation-land. Tip: if you can, try avoiding taking the highway on weekends when you're going on vacation. My niece left on a Saturday and was stuck in traffic for 3 hours. We left on a Tuesday and we had no problem concerning traffic, just the occasional reckless truck driver!
