The Road to Cannes: Aix to Cannesdemonium

My account of our family vacation in the south of France continues.  After 3 days of bliss and quiet at le Mas des Etoiles in Provence, we were almost in Cannes.

Ireland is Our Land

It must have been the "Luck of the Irish" rubbing off on us when three generations of our clan set down at Dublin airport to sunny 70°F (21°C) weather... and it stayed that way for the entire week. That wasn't the only miracle. It was just as amazing that our family of six, ranging in age from 11 to 70, had managed to get here at all when the only common denominator amongst us was a desire to visit "The Emerald Isle."

Road to Cannes - Exploring Provence

Awakening in le Mas des Etoiles, a farmhouse whose white sheers blow in carrying the lavender scented breeze and chatter of morning birds is quite disorienting to a family of New Yorkers who live 12 stories above the police sirens and passing ambulances.

Road to Cannes - Our Hotel de Charme in Provence

It's only our second day on a family vacation to the Cannes Film Festival and we're in the chill phase before the Cannesdemonium, as my clever friend calls it.

From Marseilles, a borrowed Garmin GPS has taken us an hour out of our way, compensating for a brief detour by rerouting our rental Renault to a highway to... where?  We pull off to regain the trail, peruse the enormous fold-out Michelin map we'd already torn at home in the trip planning phase, and give up.  Gunning the engine, popping the clutch, we race to 110kph and we're off.
