It seems there’s a major heat wave going on in Provence. I can’t say this with absolute certainty since I’ve nothing to compare it to, this being my first time in France, but when I arrive back in NJ and hear others lamenting their own heat wave I realize we got slammed with it too. In retrospect, choosing a bike tour in the full heat of July in the south of France may have been overly optimistic. At age 56, riding bikes with my husband and teenage son on a self-guided tour in a country where we don’t speak the language was already a stretch. Over-ninety-degree temperatures would push me daily to the precipice--not so figuratively in the mountain village of Les Baux.
