Blog Gathering in South France at Toulon

I often say; Blogging and Social Media Connecting People. For my wife DianeCA and I, the coming days will be a great example as we are going to a blog gathering in South France. Years ago, I met Claudie at Commedia’s Land in the Blogsphere and now we are invited to visit her and her husband.

I’ve travelled quite a lot around Europe, but never in this area, so as always when going to new places, I’ve checked on the net to learn something about the place:

Located 5 kilometres inland, Ollioules is near the lovely beaches of the Provençal coast such as: Bandol, Six-Fours and Sanary is only 7 kilometres from Toulon. Right at the edge of the canyons made famous by Gaspard de Besse, the medieval village has retained its charm and authenticity. Its porticoes streets, flowered balconies and well restored buildings exude this atmosphere of geniuses. Ollioules is also an interesting archaeological site. It seems that there are always treasures just waiting to be found.

Here is the map to put our journey in a geographical prospective:

We are going to Marseilles by plane to meet TorAa and his wife Anna from Norway. Mr. and Mrs. Lifecruiser from Sweden will join us there and then we are off to Claudie and her husband.

Notice the rout on the map! When leaving Claudie’s, we will go by car together with Thor and Anna through Europe back to Oslo, Norway.

I will bring my puter, but believe me; I will focus on the adventures, stay in the present and first of all enjoy the visit and the company of these wonderful blogger friends. So stay tuned, but don’t expect too many posts and excuse me for not visit and commenting on yours – until we are back. However, bloggers are always up for surprises, so check out Claudie, Mrs. Lifecruiser, DianeCA and TorAa for a glimpse of our adventures during our blog gathering!
