When touring around I often live by the dictum you can't get lost if you don't know where you're going. That was the case after leaving Pernes. Eventually we planned to get to Aix but wanted to see Vaison-la-Romaine and some of the other nearby towns. We came across Malaucene and all I could think of was Gordon Price...you see, it is one of the two towns at either end of the Mont Ventoux section of the Tour de France.
I'm ashamed to admit that we saw so many charming little places that after a while we started to take them for granted. Eventually, we made our way to Vaison-la-Romaine, one of the main tourist destinations in the region, and for good reason.
