You probably haven’t noticed that I’ve been quiet for a while before my last post… I was a little busy – just travelling France and Spain, as you do…. Rather than bore you with the details, here’s a snapshot of the highlights of the trip in snapshots…
Highlights of Paris
Four days in Paris alone. A LOT of walking. Not much eating. I must be the only person in the world to lose weight in Paris…
Paris is a highlight in itself, but so was the view from Notre Dame….
Highlights of the Intrepid Tour – Paris to Madrid
(Cycling 20km back in a storm - memorable but maybe not a highlight… It took 3 days for my shoes to dry out)
Deciding NOT to climb the bloody mountain in Luchon. That was awesome. (Especially the next day when no one besides me could walk after their 8 hour hike…)
The pinchos (tapas) of San Sebastian and pinchos pub crawls.
men food of San Sebastian, and dirty- dancing discussing world affairs with the Spanish army in San Sebastian over mojitos red wine a glass of lemonade… <coughing again…> (Mum, this picture below is photo shopped. It never happened. I’m just making things up for my blog. Really. We had dinner and a glass of lemonade and went back to our accommodation and had an early night….><cough cough>
Barcelona with Leona
I like my travel companions to rhyme with where I’m staying, so Leona joined me from London in Barcelona. Highlights:
A fair bit of quilt inspiration has snuck into my photo album…
Best bit of all
Spending two weeks with an AMAZING group of 10 Aussies, two Californians and a mad Italian tour leader….
