Paris – A few Art Galleries

Bruce and I revisited a few of the art galleries in Paris. It is interesting to go multiple times as each time you get something more out of the visit. The Picasso Museum showed over 3,500 of his pieces over a wide range of his development and evolving body of work....

Jungfraujoch -Top of Europe

A couple of days ago we took a train to Interlaken and then travelled to Lauterbrunnen and rode the Jungfrau railway to the top. Jungfraujoch is at an elevation of 3466 metres above sea level and just takes your breath away! On one side there is the view of the...

Desalpe de l’Alpage de Nava – Ayer – Val d’Anniviers- Switzerland

Desalpe is the term used when the cows come down from the mountains in the Swiss alps at the end of the summer season. We were lucky to be in Switzerland with family and lots of cousins for the decent of the cows. They are bought down from the mountains after a few...

Morocco – Lunch with a local family and Roman ruins

Lunch with a local family We were invited for lunch with the locals which was an interesting experience. We all sat around some tables and enjoyed some food which included tripe and chickpeas while satays were cooked on some coals in the lounge. Our guide Ahmed...

Morocco – Casablanca to Meknes

We are doing a 15 day tour of Morocco with Intrepid travel. I have to say we are looking forward to having a break from research and booking things. We can just trust the guide and enjoy. The flight from Madrid to Casablanca with Iberia was the scariest flight I've...

Driving on the right side of the road…

Driving on the right-hand side of the road. How difficult can that be? We hired a car for 3 weeks in France so we could explore the Normandy, Brittany and Lot regions. Well, what can I say? After more than 40 years of driving on the left, it was an interesting and...

Madrid Reina Sofia and Prado Art Galleries

We were so lucky to be in Madrid when the Reina Sofia held an exhibition 'Pity and Terror' Picasso's Path to Guernica. It commemorated the eightieth anniversary of Guernica's first showing. Photos were not allowed in the Picasso exhibit so this image of Guernica is...

Modernista Barcelona

Barcelona! What a wonderful city! We weren't here very long and focussed on its Modernista (Art Nouveau) architecture. Here are a few places we visited. La Sagrada Familia, Antonio Gaudi's giant church is an extraordinary work in progress. After about a century of...

Gouffre de Padirac

Gouffre de Padirac We headed to Gouffre de Padirac, one of the most famous caves in Europe. You descend into the centre of the earth for 103 meters and then get a little boat that is pushed along the subterranean river with spectacular views. Unfortunately, when you...

Some of the most beautiful villages in Southern France

This blog is mainly a photo essay of what has been identified as some of the most beautiful villages in France. Not keeping up with the travel blogs and travel diary, so I missed Bordeaux and might write about it later. St Emilion When we left Bordeaux we headed for...
