Summer 2018.

I was very late to plan our summer holidays. As my only few free weeks were in August, as this is the main holiday season and I usually dislike to join the tourist masses, and as I was very busy with several projects before, I delayed “summer holidays” until there were only few days left. There was a decision to make, otherwise we would stay at home. I love my neighbour country France and I longed for spending some time there again – but August is absolutely no time to go to France because of the above-mentioned main holiday season. So I looked for places in France that I had never considered as a vacation destination before. And for the first time, I consulted Airbnb. Wow, what lovely finds in remote areas!! I was lucky to discover a perfect house in a lovely village named Blesle with great hosts. A perfect area, away from tourists, a spot-on location for overworked people like me ūüėČ During my search, I had also kept looking at the light pollution map, in case there would be some clear nights… and what can I say. Our 7-days stay offered 2 clear nights. We also enjoyed some hiking through the hills and forests, and the fact that we met absolutely no one on two longer tours was spookily beautiful. The small and narrow village we lived in was charming. I’m sure that it wasn’t the last time I went there. I think I’m a little bit in love.
