We are on our yearly sister vacation. During this trip to the Languduac region we have noticed a couple of things there are very few taxis or elevators in the train stations. Both make for fun times when carrying heavy suitcases in train stations. Yesterday we were leaving our apartment in Montpillier and not looking forward to the 20 minute walk with our luggage. My intentions were set we would get a taxi. I turn around on the small street and see a yellow taxi, which I have never seen in France. We attract what we need at the perfect time!

This morning we took a train to the seaside coastal town of Séte. It was fun to walk around. We enjoyed a lunch of local seafood.
After lunch we decided to visit some tasting rooms in Frontignan. We got the local bus to head there. We thought that we would see a sign that said Frontignan on one of the stops. Nope. Mental note: take a picture of the bus route with stops. We realized too late that we passed our stop. So, we got off at the next stop. It was in the middle of no where. We were laughing and as soon as we got off the bus it started raining. We got on another bus and headed back to Montpillier! It was a fun adventure. You will see my sister using her scarf as an “umbrella” and us standing under a tree.

Our 4th Annual Sister’s vacation has begun! We are changing things up this year and using Barcelona as our airport. I miss Paris! We are traveling to the wine region of Languedoc Roussillon. We had about five hours in Barcelona yesterday waiting for our train. I had read that the train station had lockers! You put your bags through a scanner and our bags were safe. We were excited about not having to carry our bags around Barcelona!

What is out of your comfort zone?
For me its heights and activities on the water. While I was in California a few weeks ago, I did both. First we went to Trapeze High in Escondido. When we go out of our comfort zone, we need those that are in theirs, to reassure us. For me, I was not afraid of the trapeze. I knew that the safety ropes and staff had me, I was afraid of the of the 23 foot ladder to get to that point. Once I knew the procedure and pattern, I felt safe. Below are some pics of me taken while “flying.”
For me paddle board yoga was out of my comfort zone. Some people ask why, it’s because I don’t really know how to swim. I can float, but swimming is not my strength. So, for me, water sports are out of my comfort zone. We took a class with Floating Yogis in Carlsbad. It was great! The instructors helped you and pushed you safely into poses. I am proud to say I didn’t fall in the water. However, if I did what was the worse that would have happened. I would have gotten wet! Thank you Sarah!
I learned to trust those that are experts in their fields to do things that are out of my comfort zone! Both of these experiences were VERY empowering I HIGHLY recommend both of these places, if in the area.

Today’s weather felt like a warm fall day and not a typical July 20th hot day! I LOVE Sundays with no plans. I had an awesome breakfast at Domani Star and then went for a walk with the camera! I had fun with flowers, bees and buildings! Some of you may not know that I have my photos available for sale. Also, I have started a Facebook page for my photography. Have a great week!

This is my last post from our annual sister trip 2013! We have found to love all the arrondissements in Paris. One of our favorite arrondissements is the Latin Quarter (5th and 6th arrondissements). It is a vibrant area and it comes alive at night. There was live music on the streets. We found a few cute shops to go into and I bought my first piece of clothing in Paris! There is also great restaurants and fish stands! We wanted mussels and oysters. It was YUMMY! Love all of the fresh veggies and seafood to be bought.

I know that I am blogging about the Memorial Day Parade on the 4th of July. Support for our military is the same for both holidays. I LOVE this parade and I usually tear up when I see the veterans in the parade. Doylestown has a great community parade and here are a few photos of the veterans that participated. Thank you to all of our veterans and those currently serving!
