Here are the second batch of photos from our trip, again in no particular order.
A commemoration and a tribute to the sacrifices made!
The Abbey, Mont St. Michel. Almost expect a ‘Quidditch’ game to appear overhead!!
Lisbon. The Baixo district was the only flat part, surrounded by hills.
The very spectacular Sagrada Familia, probably the best building I’ve ever had the pleasure to enter.
Pintxos, San Sebastian.
Chateau Chambord, Loire Valley. The Loire is full of Chateaux great and small…this is the greatest!
Kids fun in Honfleur, Normandy.
Opera Garnier, Paris. Haunt of the Phantom of the Opera!
Arguably the most famous church in Europe, the majestic Notre Dame, Paris.
Amboise Chateau, Loire Valley. Perched high above the river and town, protecting all.
Tuk-tuk’s in Lisbon
Jeff Koon installation at the Guggenheim, Bilbao.
Place de la Bourse, on the cover of all Bordeaux brochures.
Santillana del Mar, Spain. Most restaurants featured fixed price menu’s similar to this one.
The Cathedral at Bayeux, Normandy
The tragic, haunting silence of Oradour-sur-Glane
Plaza de la Constitucion, San Sebastian. The former site of the odd bull fight, if you look closely you can see numbers over each balcony…the residents would sell their balcony to punters to watch the bullfights below!
Macarons at Laduree, Paris. Almost worth queuing up for 20 minutes!
Sagrada Familia, again!
Barri Gotic, Barcelona. The pockmarked walls are the result of a bomb during the Spanish civil war which resulted in the death of dozens of citizens.
El Born, Barcelona. The BEST sangria, and the empanadas were fabulous as well.
A laneway in the Jewish quarter, Barri Gotic, Barcelona.
Cheers from Paris!
