Adventure // St. Paul {Photo Challenge}

Remember the part of the American Pie movie where the girl (Alyson Hannigan) is always saying “One time, at band camp…”? Yeah, I sometimes feel like that when I share photos from my 2013 trip to France. But as a wife and mom with lots of day-to-day obligations, it was a pretty amazing trip! The last big trip with girlfriends before that was back in 2003 to New York, and I didn’t even have a DSLR camera back then!

So I guess I’ll just have to embrace the catchphrase…

One time, in France… my friends and I had the most exquisite private tour of a few of the villages along the South of France. Our adventure included a tour of the South of France, including Nice, Monaco, Ese Village and more. One of the villages (photographed above), St. Paul de Vence – had fantastic shopping, food, architecture and views. You can find out more about the village here or even better, you can find our entertaining and knowledgeable tour guide Katherine Coppex here. I can’t wait to share these experiences with my daughters when they’re a tad bit older!

Photo Tip: While traveling, go beyond photos of local tourist attractions – get yourself in the shots too! Get a phone selfie, a camera selfie or ask a travel companion to take the photo with you in it! You’ll be glad you did, especially years later when perusing those images! {Click to Tweet}

As always, thanks for stopping by. Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day! And if you haven’t signed-up for the Clicky Chick Creates email list yet, whatcha waiting for? You’ll get “7 Must-Have Kid Birthday Photos” printable photo tips as my thank you 🙂


Live creatively!

  1. Nice photo – the south of France is beautiful. We’ve been there once for three days and I look forward to going back one day. So many places to visit with only so much time! Good advice on adding to the adventure and getting in the picture – I have too many photos of places and not enough of people – great advice!
