The Ocean Race museum in Alicante, Spain honors this most difficult of all professional team sports. The museum’s video stories and images from past participants were mesmerizing. Especially their experiences in the Southern Ocean.
The Three… Cacti?
For some reason these barrel cacti reminded me of Los Reyes Magos — Melchor, Gaspar and Baltasar – the three kings.
The Circus Comes to Town
Early one morning we came across a small circus set up at the marina. The Raluy Legacy circus had come to town!
Yes, you can travel by train with your cat in Europe
Even though traveling with an old cat has its challenges, it’s nothing compared to navigating Covid restrictions in the E.U. And, to answer the question about how you’ll know if your pets like to travel, the best advice we can give is to plan a short trip and give it a try.
Riding along on a carrousal
It seems like every city we visited in France had an old fashion “carrousel” in the market square.
A Short Stay in Nîmes
If you like old stones do not pass up Nîmes. It is by far home to the best preserved Roman buildings we’ve seen.
To the Red Snail?
It says, “to the red snail” but what does it mean?
Strasbourg on a cloudy day
Could a lovelier city exist? Even a cold, cloudy day couldn’t dampen the beauty of Strasbourg.
We liked everything about Dijon. Yes, this city has it all. If I could speak French I’d never want to leave.
I like to see dogs out with their peeps.
Crazy Chimneys and Wall Art in Dijon
Crazy chimneys are another reason to love Dijon.
Our Pleasant Interlude in Narbonne
Susan and I decided to limit the distance of each train journey so that our old boy, Teej, needn’t spend more than four hours at a time in his carrier. And that’s the primary reason we chose Narbonne as our first stop in France.
I’m glad we did because I was charmed by this often overlooked city that lies between the mountains and the sea.
