THE LOADED TRUNK

a travel and lifestyle magazine

The Luberon is a lovely corner of Provence in the beautiful south of France. The region is unique in that it is located inside the Luberon Natural Regional Park, and is therefore protected. In this issue, we visit ancient hilltop villages and outdoor markets teeming with delightful local produce and artisan items. I show you where to find the area's most delicious French cuisine, where to sleep in charming boutique hotels and explore the gorgeous Provençal countryside. Peek into historic castles, meet artists and hoteliers and savor the rich colors and flavors in this beloved "heart of Provence."

My hometown where I was born and raised runs deep in my blood, as my ancestors traveled to its dense forests in the very early days via the Oregon Trail. I love returning to visit and always go with an appetite so I can enjoy eating my way through the city, known for its fantastic food culture, abundance of locally grown and foraged delights and innovative chefs. Spring is a great time to visit Portland, as the entire city is in bloom. Everywhere you look is a visual feast of lush green with a riot of flowers.
