Re: Help with Provence Itinerary

I know you've seen it already, P., but for the sake of others following your plans, I'll post this link to a recent short Conde Nast piece about Uzes, a place I stayed a week and liked very much. They call it un-Provence.

Nearest St-Remy: - Don't miss Les Baux . The village is touristy but the castle complex on top is fantastic and the views are to die for - you don't need to be a fan of scenery to appreciate them. - Roman ruins of Glanum , walking distance from St-Remy - Arles for more Roman ruins (but I think you've been already?) Farther away: - Day-trip to the Luberon for unmatched scenery and charming little villages full of vernacular architecture - what people build themselves, without an architect.

Thanks for the comprehensive thoughts! We have been in Arles and Aix...not for as long as I'd have liked, but I think we'll have to include Avignon this time (nearby, and only got an hour of our time before). I'm leaning to the idea of one day for the Luberon, one for Avignon and the rest closer to "home"--although the roast chicken is calling me! We're arriving in St-Remy around 9ish on Wednesday, with an apartment just behind the main part of the market (hope we can get through to the...

Unless your accommodations have private parking, I'd arrive really early on Wednesday. The market starts at 9am. If you're there by 8 or 8:30, you should be able to snag parking reasonably close. I haven't been to the market in St-Remy, but given its size, I bet the roast chicken truck will be there too.

Good point, and sent me scurrying back to the Airbnb details page—and fortunately, there's on-premise parking. That's good, because we're picking up the car at Avignon TGV at about 8:40. An earlier train would be more expensive and less pleasant... We're staying at a hotel in Marseille that's just at Gare St-Charles, and considered picking the car up there...but decided that leaving central Marseille in the rush hour might not be our favorite thing...and also adds about 54€ to the rental for...

Re: Best of Australia: Outdoor Activities to Do in Australian Summer

GarryRF ·
I've done most of those activities in the Oz winter. The winter time is a much cooler version of summer with temperatures below the 100f + that they get at Xmas - nearer 60/70f and just as sunny. Much more pleasant for a traveller from the frozen north. The Bridge Climb was a hoot - laughing all the way. But climbing trees is an invasion of Spider Territory. But at least the tree snakes eat 'em. Not for me.

We hear similar warnings here about Mt. Rainier and the Yellowstone hotspot. Hopefully we'll all be long gone before anything of consequence happens.
