This year is shaping up to be an exciting one for me with regard to aromatherapy. I recently did my first aromatherapy tele-conference for the NAHA on aromatherapy writing and blogging and I have a couple of new projects in the works (including the launch of my first accredited aromatherapy foundation course in late Spring). Consequently, I have been working hard to achieve my goals and deadlines. So, I felt it was time to give myself a well earned break and embark on a new adventure!
Its been several years since I have had the opportunity to visit my family and friends back home in the U.K., so I decided this summer was the time to finally do it. As I have a long haul flight across the ocean, I decided to make the most of my time and incorporate an aromatherapy trip into my plans. So, this summer you will find me in the South of France for part of my trip, with the opportunity to study and see first hand those wonderful fields of French lavender, how it is distilled and other aromatic and visual delights! Although this is not my first visit to France (I grew up in neighboring England which made France my first trip abroad when I was old enough!), it will be my first time visiting this particular region of France.
It is a trip that has taken some very concise planning with regard to dates, modes of transport (planes, trains and automobiles!) and accommodation but I am looking forward to it, despite the drawbacks of jet lag and other travel niggles. I hope to return with many tales to tell – and information to share!
If you want to follow my aromatic adventures in France, watch out for blog and article posts, photos and more in the Fall. And enjoy the delights of France from your armchair and computer! A bientot!
