    I am almost embarrassed to admit that we had so much trouble finding Sacre Coeur.  After all it is on Montmartre, the highest point in Paris. After a while, we are starting to wonder if our GPS had developed a personality of its own, and it was annoyed with us as it took us around [...]

    Once again we have arrived somewhere randomly, only to find it is a special day. Since we didn’t know what was going on, it all seemed a bit odd to us at first, especially in light of current world events. We are at the base of the Arc de Triomphe, just walking around and having [...]

    Here is what I really think of Paris: If you have been following along, you know that we have seen some classic and amazing sites in Paris like the Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel Tower, Sacre Coeur and The Palace of Versailles. And yes, the site seeing here is wonderful. The tourist attractions are larger [...]

    Sometimes the best thing about not speaking the language when we travel is my self appointed free-range translation.  So, my question – are these two officers, in fact “Polite” Police or does “Politie” have a different meaning? Polite Police? Photo © Rhonda Albom 2012 What do you think is really going on in this photo.  [...]

    We were hungry and happy to see the non-stop kitchen sign in the window . . .  . . . and surprised to see the closed sign in the window. Non-Stop Kitchen Here are close ups to make it easier to see the non-stop kitchen and closed signs (yellow):    ©Rhonda Albom 2012 in Brugges, [...]

    Entering the Butterman Time Travel Agency my options were suddenly greater than normal. Now I wasn’t just going somewhere but rather “some-when.” I remember visiting the medieval fortress and castle in Carcassonne, France. I questioned the validity of the legend that Dame Carcas was the city namesake due to her ingenuity which defended the walled [...]

    The Berlin Wall enclosed West Berlin from August 13, 1961 to November 9, 1989, cutting a line through the entire city center and separating the East Berliners and citizens of East Germany, from the freedom of the West.  The wall came down in 1989, but a piece remains, protected, as a memorial and stark reminder. [...]

    Some cliches are wonderful. Waiting in endless queues, fighting the crowds, being pushed around a bit, yet our visit to the top of the Eiffel Tower actually seemed worthwhile. We were lucky, we had timed tickets purchased in advance by an old friend who is now living just outside Paris, quite near the beautiful Palace of […]

    The Palace of Versailles, located just outside Paris France, took me by surprise. It is breathtaking around every corner.  Initially, a small hunting lodge built by Louis XIII in 1623 it was enlarged into a royal palace by Louis XIV. The gardens are a world famous immaculate masterpiece.  It is a must see located just outside of […]

    Berlin is one of my favourite cities. The capital of Germany is a once-divided city with an interesting history. On August 13, 1961, the Berlin Wall went up quickly surrounding what would be called West Berlin. Instantly Berlin was divided, and only those in the west were free. The wall was taken down on November […]

    The Arc de Triomphe towering at the end of the Champs Elysees fought for my attention as we strolled along Paris’s famous street. As we approached, it was evident to me that Napoleon accomplished his objective of demonstrating his power. At the same time, it seemed unreachable, guarded by a crocodile-like moat, a roundabout of several layers of cars […]

    Toulouse is an eclectic mix of medieval architecture and modern aerospace leaving visitors wondering what to do in Toulouse first. Located on the banks of the Garonne River, its charming streets make it ideal for walking. One look at the faded red-brick facades of the old city and you will instantly understand the nickname “La Ville […]

    Travelling in Europe, we discovered a treasure trove of majestic cathedrals. The Basilica of St Sernin in the city of Toulouse France was no exception. It is the largest Romanesque church in Europe, filled with antiquities, relics, and museum quality frescoes. Also famous for its Romanesque sculpture, the Basilica of St Sernin is a UNESCO World Heritage Site on […]

    Perched on a hill at the base of the Pyrenees mountains in Southern France, Saint Bertrand de Comminges appears from the ground as a gateway to the heavens. It takes only a few moments after passing through one of the village’s three gates to understand why St Bertrand de Comminges is listed amongst the Les Plus Beaux Villages […]

    Paris is one of those cities that you either love or hate. Either way, you know you are not in Paris alone. There are masses of people everywhere, and it can feel overwhelming even to those who came for the ambience, romance, and excitement of the city. Visitors who aren’t used to so many people […]
