First stop Prague in The Czech Republic, an amazing city that is still so intact from its Medieval days as capital of the Bohemian Empire. We had 4 lovely days here with just the four of us wandering its fascinating streets and Squares, visiting Castles, Cathedrals and Palaces. We crossed The Charles bridge many times day and night and took in as much as we could including a night out at a Jazz club and all the while enjoying the amazingly cheap Beer.
We loved all the Kubist and Modernist movement Architecture from the turn of the century that was scattered all over Prague
NEXT STOP PARIS, FRANCE
We met up with Joan & Shelly on our second day and took in The Place Des Vosges, Luxembourg gardens, The Pantheon, Notre Dame just in one day. we are staying in The Marais Quarter in a fabulous apartment.
Our next day was The Louvre and at night The Eiffel Tower in all its sparkles.
We visited Versailles on the hottest day of the year and it was so massive and opulent we felt the idiocy of it all.
NEXT STOP AVIGNON, FRANCE
A very fast train ride and we arrive in the south of France and it’s hot really hot and as we have to walk to our B&B it’s cobble stones all the way but at least the streets are tree lined and we get there in one piece.
We enjoyed the side trips to the Provence villages of Gordes and Roussillon and through the lavender fields that surround them.
