  • Day 24We woke up this morning to the sound of rain, thunder and lightning, the same sounds we heard at the end of yesterday. By the time we were up and ready for breakfast the sun was shining and it was a Posted by A-RPoulton in European Vacation 2 - 2018 | May 17, 2018
  • Amboise and da VinciAmboise After a very nice breakfast, We drove up to the next Chateau and checked in. This is another small hotel from which we will be starting our cycling trip. As usual, very old and quaint and also very Posted by wilson.lim61 in French Foray 2018 | May 16, 2018

  • Day 23We fell asleep last night listening to thunder, lightning and rain. By morning the storm had passed and we had a beautiful day with a high of 26 C (79 F). We set out from our hotel to see Villefranche, Posted by A-RPoulton in European Vacation 2 - 2018 | May 16, 2018
  • Sardinia and CorsicaWell, after a day at sea on the way, finally arrived at Sardinia. Day dragged on the boat, so it was good to finally set foot on land again! Arranged a tour of the Emerald Coast (as they call it here). Posted by Mike and Sue in 2 Swans in Europe 2018 | May 15, 2018
  • The PalaceBig day today! It’s our palace visit. We bought a tour mainly because it will get us the fast track entry. We had to be there at 1020 am sharp! And we were but the guide Posted by wilson.lim61 in French Foray 2018 | May 15, 2018

  • My nephew's wedding Today we drove to Norwich [Norwich-travel-guide-364808] to attend the wedding of my nephew Paul to his lovely bride Stevee. After the ceremony, we had a BBQ dinner. After that, there was time for us to mingle in the yard of Posted by alexchan in 2014 Europe via Papua | Jul 18, 2014
  • More of the real ParisView from Belle Ville Park shows the Paris skyline including the Eiffel Tower. I thought revisit Sacre Coeur today but Marie took me for another "real Paris" outing. We took the Posted by alexchan in 2009 Portugal, France & California | Sep 20, 2009
  • The other ParisStarting off in the glitzy area near our place. This is St James tower. This morning Marie took me to the northern part of Paris [Paris-travel-guide-471458] around Gare du Nord ( Posted by alexchan in 2009 Portugal, France & California | Sep 18, 2009
  • French swimming poolLacy undies? No, the Eiffel Tower. As Paris isn't entirely new to me, there was any pressure to do the touristy things. Instead it is quite nice to do the day-to-day activities . Posted by alexchan in 2009 Portugal, France & California | Sep 17, 2009
  • Visiting the departedOscar Wilde's grave. One thing I haven't done in my previous visits to Paris [Paris-travel-guide-471458] is the Pere Lachaise cemetery which is home to the remains of many famous Posted by alexchan in 2009 Portugal, France & California | Sep 16, 2009
  • The day that disappearedAt the Pont Marie metro station, Marie and I were magically transported to Istanbul ... it is a poster. We travelled back to Paris [Paris-travel-guide-471458] today ... it was a Posted by alexchan in 2009 Portugal, France & California | Sep 15, 2009
  • St Michael Jackson in Ars After a miserable wet morning, the sun finally shone and we cycled to Ars ... yes, in full it is Ars-en-Re. It is only about 7km each way this time. Ars has a church with a black-and-white spire, so I Posted by alexchan in 2009 Portugal, France & California | Sep 14, 2009
  • Cycling Ile de Re has many cycle tracks ... they seem to have been converted from the old narrow roads once the new roads came in, but I could be wrong. They link the different villages, taking cyclists through bays, salt Posted by alexchan in 2009 Portugal, France & California | Sep 13, 2009
  • On the island of Re Today we zoomed down somewhat towards the South West to La Rochelle [La-Rochelle-travel-guide-1313568] in the TGV. It was the first time I've ever travelled in a high-speed train. The higher speed wasn't too obvious apart from the more blurry scenery. F Posted by alexchan in 2009 Portugal, France & California | Sep 12, 2009
  • Leaving Portugal for Paris ... with a feeling we'll be back Today we left Porto with the feeling that we'd one day come back to Portugal. It is one corner of Western Europe that is still affordable on a New Zealand income (or no income in my current situation). The price Posted by alexchan in 2009 Portugal, France & California | Sep 11, 2009
  • Homeward bound Today I flew from Toulouse [Toulouse-travel-guide-467792] to London Gatwick, then bused to London Heathrow to connect to on the Air New Zealand flight to Auckland (arriving two days later) via Los Angeles. Big and long day it was! Posted by alexchan in 2007 California & France | Aug 29, 2007
  • Another fortified city Carcasonne is another fortified city within day-tripping distance of Toulouse [Toulouse-travel-guide-467792]. Again rather over-touristed and rather commercialised but I wouldn't have missed it because of this. The fortification consists of a double rin Posted by alexchan in 2007 California & France | Aug 28, 2007
  • Home of the Big BusThe Capitol (or town hall). Toulouse is the fourth largest city in France ... also called the pink city because many old buildings are finished in red brick without plaster. It i Posted by alexchan in 2007 California & France | Aug 27, 2007
  • Breakfast in CondomCondom cathedral. I never thought I'd see Catholicism and contraception come together! But the pretty little town of Condom [Condom-travel-guide-432505] has the Cathedral as its Posted by alexchan in 2007 California & France | Aug 27, 2007
  • Hot Marmande The mercury (or rather the readout in the car) hit 37 degrees Celsius as we drove through Burgundy [Burgundy-travel-guide-1362868]. People were playing in the fountains to cool off. We proceeded to Marmande [Marmande-travel-guide-451838] for a nightstop Posted by alexchan in 2007 California & France | Aug 26, 2007
  • Lunch by the Atlantic For some reason, I associate the Atlantic with cold bleak weather. But the Atlantic coast town of La Rochelle [La-Rochelle-travel-guide-1313568] was a scorcher. La Rochelle's main feature is the "Vieux Port" ("Old Harbour"), which is at the heart of th Posted by alexchan in 2007 California & France | Aug 26, 2007
  • Dark Past This city in the Loire valley has a dark history ... it was the slave trade capital in France and the hub of human trafficing from Africa to the new continent. But good on them for not sweeping this under Posted by alexchan in 2007 California & France | Aug 25, 2007
