Instagram postcard from Seville

Remember how I wanted to travel more in 2015? I wasn’t about to waste a week of school vacation sitting around Lyon!

The problem was April. In April, you never know if it will rain or shine, regardless of the destination, it seems. With Easter and school vacations, prices often spike in April too.

Instagram postcard from Sète

I already told you about some highlights of Sète, a charming fishing town in the Languedoc Roussillon region of France. You may have remarked that I like to take pictures. A lot of pictures. (My chéri is not so enthused about my photography habit. Apparently, it takes forever to go somewhere because I stop every three feet to take a photo.) At the time of writing, I have 1873 photos with Instagram, so that gives you an idea.

Here are some of my favorite Instagram shots from Sète.
