We returned to France after two years away to celebrate the wedding of two very close friends in Paris. After the wedding, we stayed in Paris for a few days and then traveled down to Provence and the Vaucluse with several friends who had also come for the wedding. It was an epic trip and it was especially wonderful to be able to share the experience with friends, something we have never done before in our travels. I combed the boards here and put together a food and travel itinerary for the group and we couldn't have been happier. I thought I'd share a report since all the posts on Chowhound have so immensely helped craft our trip.
I'll go in chunks with the reporting but will lay out our meal schedule below.
