A lot has happened these past few months, I have moved from L’Aude to the Gard, a whole new departement with lots of new places to discover! There are Vineyards all around me and small mountains, lots of sun and the famous Mistral. It does blow a lot but as someone who loves the wind it does not bother me at all. Two weeks ago I stumbled upon a beautiful but funny thing: Fields full of tulips! Being a Dutchie it made me smile, I didn’t expect that here in the South of France but the French love it, there were lots of people who came to see them!

On a beautiful Sunday beginning of October we decided to go and do a little photo shoot in Montolieu, a village not far from us in the montagne noire. Montolieu is known as the book and arts village due to it’s many bookshops and art galleries. In the summer it can be busy with tourists but now, in the autumn, it’s a lot more peaceful and we were able to work in peace.
We asked the owner of a book store (who happened to be dutch!) if we could take some photos inside his shop and we could, really friendly guy.
With it’s almost Provence like colors, small ancient streets with flowerpots everywhere and little corners where you can just sit down and relax it’s really a charming village to visit!
