Windy Narbonne! Pleasant enough for a stop over but nowhere near as nice as Albi πŸ™‚ The wind is cold too - time to head south for the winter I think! πŸ˜‰

What a delightful discovery Albi was! And as we are both fans of Toulouse-Lautrec, it was made even better by the fact Albi has a museum dedicated to him.

This beautiful medieval village in the south of France is my fave so far! So much to see packed into such a small space! Najac is a hilltop village in the Aveyron region of France.

The medieval village of Rocamadour is built almost vertically straight up a cliff face. It has a complex of religious buildings at the top which people used to travel to as part of their pilgrimage. The chapel houses the statue of the black madonna.

The very eerie & sad Oradour sur Glane. A village that has never been rebuilt since 10th June 1944 when German soldiers entered it and massacred every single man, woman & child. Over 600 people.

Monday 23 Oct 2017 10:31

In Thale, in the Harz Mountains, there is a reputation for all things witchy & bewitching! This amazing hall, called Walpurgis Halle, was built in 1901 & the guy who designed it also did the beautiful huge paintings inside. My favourite was this one depicting witches dancing around the flames on Walpurgis Night.

Sunday 22 Oct 2017 9:47

Apparently, the most visited thing in Weimar is this statue of Goethe & Schiller. Personally, I preferred the building where the history of the gestapo & then the Stasi keep their files on people far more interesting.

Wednesday 13 Sep 2017 9:59

Wednesday 6 Sep 2017 10:21

We were really disappointed to arrive at Olimpia & find that they were forcing people to buy combined tickets for the site & the museum. You used to be able to buy a ticket just for Ancient Olimpia, and even though it was still up on their sign, they wouldn't sell us one. We were not prepared to pay €12 just to look at the ruins. Complete rip off! You could see it from the road anyway.

We were hoping to hang out here at Corbu Beach for a while but after two nights of feeling very claustrophobic due to the number of people around & having to listen to techno shit nearly all night, we decided to move on. Not why we go to the beach!! So, still searching for some peace & serenity ... not sure anywhere in Europe has it! πŸ˜©πŸšπŸ’¨
