I'm off - for a while

For the next four weeks I will share my time between Provence / Camargue and Tuscany. In the meantime I will not be blogging.

Below you can find my last post – for the moment.

I hope to “see” you all again by the end of August! Take care!

Will miss your lovely photos and are very envious of your lovely vacation spots. Take lots of photos to share upon your return . Au revoir!

Cuckoo said...

Peter,
I echo Virginia's views here. We'll surely miss you.

Enjoy your holidays and come back rejuvenated.
Bon vacance !

Il y a 20 ans comme aujourd'hui, je n'arrive pas à digérer cette "usine à gaz", pourtant je l'ai visité me suis promenée dans le quartier plusieurs fois, mes goûts n'évoluent pas, mais heureusement que tous les goûts sont dans la nature, dans une ville avec des monuments aussi beaux les uns que les autres, ça restera toujours pour moi un anachronisme.
Bonnes vacances mange de bonnes glaces pour moi en Italie (comme cela je ne prendrai pas les kilos), prend aussi bien le soleil pour moi(comme cela je n'attraperai pas les coups de soleil). Grosses bises à bientôt.

Enjoy your holidays. Have a safe trip, Peter. We'll miss you!!!

Bonnes vacances Peter ! Tu es comme moi, quand je pars, je ne blogue pas, Il faut bien déconnecter un peu de temps en temps.
Ton post sur le centre Pompidou :
Moi, je n'aime pas. Il paraît qu'un jour Robert Mitchum qui levait bien le coude a dit en voyant ce bâtinment : "Ah! Quelle belle distellerie !"

Comment veux-tu que je me débrouille toute seule pendant quatre semaines. Aucune photo de Paris pour me rappeler une autre période de ma vie, pas de commentaire à inventer, pas de commentaire non plus à recevoir. Bon, j'ai voté, et tu ne pars plus en vacances puisque tu y es!

Olivier said...

et encore un de moins, le mois d'aout va etre tristounet sur la blogsphere.
Surtout bonne vacances et amuse toi bien.

Maxime said...

Bonnes vacances, Peter, et à bientôt !

Cergie said...

Et ben c'est ben que tu partes ça te fera du ben !

(Surtout c'est ben que tu partes en même temps que le blog est calme, pas comme quand t'es parti au Pérou)

Marie-Noyale said...

Je vous souhaite de tres bonnes vacances.
Un excellent choix pour les differents lieux de vacances!!! Un seul des trois me conviendrait parfaitement!!!

Jessica said...

Enjoy your adventure, Peter! Can't wait to hear the stories!

We stayed in Arles once, but the wind never stopped. We enjoyed the Camargue Tours, though.

LeenaM said...

I wish you happy times during August
and plenty of good pictures about those landscapes, where you will be.

zoe said...

NO matter where you go, wish you happy everyday, take care !!

april said...

I will miss you and your photos, Peter, and I wish you wonderful holidays in these beautiful French landscapes and in Italy of course, too.

GMG said...

Hi Peter! I've some mixed feelings about you stopping the blog for a while; but I think I'm happy because this way I'll have time to see all the previous posts I couldn't enjoy due to the hectic weeks… ;))
Anyhow, you're a truly Parisian: going to Provence in August... Peter Mayle would be lol at it... ;))
And Tuscany... Have a big ice cream at the main square of San Gimignano for me!!
The Beaubourg post is by far the best visual description of the building (I'm a fan of this Renzo Piano's work) I've ever seen!
The quarter of the Place des Victoires and the Petits Pères deserved some attention. And no one would make it better than you! Of course, you didn't mention the huge building at Rue Croix des Petits Champs, but that's my professional distortion... ;))
OK! I'll stay here for today!
Many thanks for your comments on Blogtrotter, still at the MoMA as you noticed!
Wish you a great weekend and a wonderful holiday!

Enjoy every minute of August! Time for us to go back and visit what we missed...

Peter said...

Thanks to all for your nice wishes! I'm now really off and closing my PC - with some regrets.

Well, I will be back and I hope to see you all again!

Ex-Shammickite said...

Peter: please enjoy your holiday, and I am already looking forward to more of your posts about the Carmargue and Tuscany.
Enjoy!

claude said...

Ma Mère a retrouvé dans quel passage de Paris, j'allais aux cours de danse, c'est le passage des Panoramas. Je l'ai trouvé sur internet et ai cliqué sur ton lien. C'est bien celui-là ! Ah, que de souvenirs !
Nous prenions la ligne de métro à pneus et j'arrivais aux cours ntoute barboullée.Cela changeait ettenement des anciens wagons encore en bois que j'ai connus.

J'espère qu'il fait beau dans le sud. Pour ma part je viens juste de
rentrer de Suède, il me semble bien que c'est ton pays d'origine ?!
Je te souhaite une très bonne fin de vacances !

Virginia said...

Peter,
It seems as if you have been gone a terribly long time. We need our Paris Photo fix! I am sure on your end, the time in Provence and Tuscany seems so fleeting. Enjoy!
Best,
V
