"J" is for Joy

This is Day 10 for the
Blogging from A to Z Challenge
for 2013.

For today's post I've chosen the topic of joy: the joy I've experienced in Europe through each of my five senses.

JOY in smelling the overwhelming fragrance of a field of lavender at the St. Paul de Mausole Monastery in St. Remy-de-Provence.

JOY in tasting exquisite chocolates at Joel Durand also in St. Remy-de-Provence.  This luxury chocolatier offers flavours in an alphabet of chocolate – "J" is Chung Hao Jasmine.

JOY in hearing Pachelbel's Canon performed in a candlelight concert by London Concertante at St. Martin-in-the-Fields Church in London (you can listen to a recording by the London Symphony Orchestra here).

JOY in feeling the hot sun, brisk wind and cooling sea spray on a boat skimming across the waves of the Mediterranean Sea.

JOY in seeing a Camargue sunset at Port-Saint-Louis-du-Rhône, enjoyed with new friends over a glass of wine.

And most of all, JOY in seeing my children waiting for me at the airport when I returned home.
