We are off to France in two days time.
We have packed.
We sat in the sun! (very rare here) yesterday and got the low down on the place where we stay. Some things have changed since last year. We use a friend’s apartment without charge as his “gift” to us. We aren’t the only ones. He SHARES.
He loves sharing his stuff. Isn’t that nice?
The only other person I know who did that all her life was my mother. She loved travel. So she regularly paid for other people to travel. Not just family, but friends and acquaintances too. She did anonymous things as well – like put people through university.
She was an extraordinary person. She was an academic but not wealthy. Sharing gave her immense pleasure.
So we are lucky to have a sharing friend with a beautiful apartment in Provence, are we not?
