This is a wonderful website which makes the most out of flash technology to animate an electronic journey around one of the most beautiful places in the world - Provence.
Many people have a good old moan about flash enable website, saying that they take up too much bandwidth, load slowly and are full of cheap and nast effects. Personally I would agree with about 80% of flash driven websites - it is still a tool overused by overenthusiastic amateurs.
This site is different, however - you can choose to sea Provence, or hear it - gaing a wonderful feel for the sites and sounds as you fluidly navigate around the site. It is what flash was meant to do - and it does it wonderfully.
Plus, of course there is the added bonus of being able to claim that you have been to Provence when in fact you haven't. At least you can say you got there (almost) carbon free though!
