Today's Wonder of the World is... A Halloween Blog Party!
Given by my friend Angela at Just Go!
Our party theme is What A Strange Trip It's Been, which is perfect for me!
I LOVE STRANGE TRIPS!
My favorite Strange Trip of all time would have to be...you guessed it!
My trips all over France!
I know I'm cheating a little to lump them all together, but humor me. After four years of living la belle vie, I couldn't pick just one! Why, it'd tie my brain up in a tangled mess! I'd not be fit to go anywhere, and this is a traveling party!
And as for the trip being strange, I've got three kids, remember? Every trip is a strange one!
Are you ready to go back in time? Passport in hand?
As Angela would say, Let's Just Go!
Uh oh. I forgot about the guard.
Here, I'll call my jester to let you pass.
That jester loves company. And so do I!
Welcome to my home!
Before we get traveling, let me show you around.
We live in a little village, but we spend lots of time in nearby Clermont Ferrand.
It's about a three and a half hour train ride south of Paris. We're in the heartland of France!
Feel free to pick a sunflower, but watch out for bees!
I know you may be jet lagged but are you ready to do some sightseeing?
Perhaps we should take provisions.
I know! Cherries from our tree!
Put them in a bowl. Or heck--just use your ears!
(Ignore the ironing board, please. I had no idea visitors would be dropping in!)
Now, how will we travel?
Why don't we start with a walk?
Or we could hop on a train.
Or take the car.
Oh sorry! I forgot to tell you...we don't have air conditioning. That's okay. Just roll down the windows.
With all the places we're visiting, we'll also need a ferry. Hold on tight! It's windy!
What should we see first?
An organ grinder in Paris?
The lavender fields of Provence?
Mont St. Michel, with Joan of Arc?
Monet's garden at Giverny? Look, the little ones have multiplied!
Corsica, in all its wildness?
Or maybe Cassis, one of my favorite towns.
Whew! I'm tired.
Before we go home, we must eat! It's France, after all!
Don't worry. He'll sleep through the meal. I'll order for us--my favorites!
Salade de chevre chaud. (Sorry, French accent police. Blogger won't let me add my accents.)
We must have dessert!
Creme brulee. (Yes, I know. Again I'm missing accents. I feel so naked!)
Ah, that was nice.
Are you ready to go home?
Do you know the way?
It's right past the flower market...
Thank goodness it's downhill all the way!
We're back! Safe and sound!
Thank you so much for coming!
Have a safe journey home. And mind the goats on the road!
They must have followed us back from Corsica.
I hope you'll feel free to drop in any time.
We can relive French memories...
Or make new ones here in sunny South Carolina!
My bloggy door is always open!
Have a Wonder-full Wednesday, y'all!
