That said, let me share with you where I dream of going with Dada and the kids. I cannot wait to show them the world, and these three places I feel, would be great settings for family adventures.
While known as the playground of the rich and famous in its heyday, St. Tropez still is essentially a picturesque fishing town that also happens to be filled with expensive restaurants, yachts and high-end shops.
But it is not purely the glamour of it all that I am after. I know I will not be able to resist popping into Rondini and K. Jaccques. The idea of sunning in the South of France, shopping for fresh produce during marche days at the Place des Lices and going on a road trip to sample the wines of the nearby vineyards, and visit the scenic, charming village of Gassin would be an experience for the senses like no other.

Speaking of sensual experiences that inspire, there is nothing like the whole of Provence, actually. I can practically smell the lavender in the air as I write this. Images of sun-kissed produce, truffle and herb plantations, handmade soaps, artisanal food - its communing with nature at its finest. I dream of spending a whole month just driving and eating our way through Provence, visiting Cezanne’s workshop, passing through historical and cultural landmarks and simply taking in the breathtaking landscape while munching on macarons, almonds and other local treats.

I have always dreamed of visiting Greece. Santorini to be more precise. The landscape of whole villages carved onto cliffs is simply breathtaking. Imagine walking past homes bleached white by the sun, topped by blue domes the color of the sea. Think of sunsets that paint the sky a vibrant orange, and beaches that run the gamut of red, black and white. Now think about sitting down each day to a hearty Mediterranean meal of fresh grilled fish and crispy calamari, of vine ripened tomatoes and feta cheese drizzled with cold pressed olive oil. Now, that’s a vacation!

About Yosi Samra:
Yosi Samra are fold-up ballet flats from the US. The flats are designed by 2nd generation shoemaker Yosi Samra, and come in leather, suede, satin, exotic skin and prints. They are meant to be worn after wearing heels all day, but they are made so well and are just so comfy, that they have become a busy girl's go-to flats.
Look for Yosi Samra at Glorietta 4 Ayala Center, SM Aura Premier, SM Mall of Asia, Rockwell Powerplant Mall, Alabang Town Center, Trinoma Mall, and Gas at Greenbelt 3.
