Northern Lights

Just last week, I spent a week in the north at a lovely beach-side hotel. We’d get up early in the mornings, enjoy a delicious buffet breakfast with everything from regional cheeses and shakshuka to the butteriest brioche rolls and then head out to visit multiple stops on our itinerary.
We did everything from walking through artists’ quarters to touring wine country to horseback riding on the mountains, and each night, sufficiently tired, we’d collapse in bed (only after sampling some of the region’s best street-fare!) to recharge for the next day.
It was quite hot, but the combination of palm trees, fruit orchards, lakes and ice cream more than made up for that. Here are some pictures of my favorite moments from our trip.
