Hello Avignon!

Here is a pic of Olivia on the main strip, luckily our hostel is on this street so we are in the centre of everything! 

The first thing we did after checking in to our room was take a tour of Palais des Papes which is the largest gothic castle in the world. 

And the tour came with a free audio tour!

At the end of the tour you came to a gallery space with lots of modern painters, photographers, etc.

View from the tower

View from the top of the original water tower for the castle

Olivia on the famous bridge there

Then we took a rest by the river

We saw some lavender but it was infested with honeybees (hense my weird pose) but that didnt stop me from jumping right in!
