I was in France with my parents. We stayed in Marseille, but found out that the Tour de France was coming through a small town not too far away. Or at least we thought it wasn't far. I researched on the internet and Dad and I took off early one morning to catch the Tour. After an hour train ride we started looking for signs and buses to take us to our destination of St.Remy. No signs and no buses. We finally found someone that had heard of the town and pointed us in the right direction and said we could walk. So we started walking. After about 2 hours of walking along side the road of rural France, we saw a sign that said 17km. We were determined to make it but could not make it 17 more km. So Dad put his thumb up and we hitch-hiked. I have never hitch-hiked before and I probably won't ever again, but it was worth it. We made it to town with about 30 minutes to spare. After hours of traveling in the hot sun, the cyclists came thru town in about 30 seconds and it was over. Well worth it though! Definitely a once in a lifetime experience! To treat our hard work, we had a late lunch at this amazing little restaurant:
And if you're ever in the South of France, find St.Remy. It's a beautiful little boutique city with great hotels, shops, artwork and countryside! I wish I was there now!

Me: Ko, its late and I'm going to bed. Are you coming?
Ko: No, I'm watching the All-Star game.
Me: Why? Its doesn't matter at all.
Ko: Yes, it does. The winners get home team advantage in the World Series.
Me: Ko, I don't think the Bravos are going to be playing in the World Series this year, so again, it doesn't matter.
Ko: But the Mets may be playing in the World Series.
Me: So...(then figuring out where he's going with this)...You are not a Mets fan now just because Jeff Francouer plays for them!!
Ko: Yes, I am.
Ko: I'll be cheering for the Mets later this week when they play the Braves.
Me: Oh my gosh!!! That's ridiculous!! (Thinking-I'm so going to blog this)
So, my husband is officially a trader. We both grew up on Atlanta Braves baseball! And he is now officially fair-weather! Sad, isn't it?
