I hope you saw some interesting, maybe scary, costumes or characters last night for Halloween. And I hope they were children, but depending upon where you were they certainly could have been adults. Especially in the U.S. where adults LOVE to dress up for Halloween. I was thinking of going as a Playboy Bunny this year, but then I decided that I would scare far too many people and that I just shouldn’t risk it. Maybe next year.
One of the best things about traveling for me is to see how people in other countries live, work, eat, dress or have fun. What you’ll see on the streets of Paris is quite often a chic contrast to what you’ll find many hours south in Provence where life is more rural or agricultural.
Visiting the brocantes and marche de puces, or flea markets, you’ll find lots of interesting people both as the sellers and those like me who are on the hunt for treasures. And just like spotting an intriguing treasure in the bottom of a dusty box, you just never know what, or whom, you will find.
Here’s to never knowing what you’ll find when you travel down an unexpected road!
