  1. Beautiful photo, Barbara! We are hoping to make it to France and definitely visit Bordeaux in 2014. Seeing this picture makes us want to go now!

    • Hi Deborah. Bordeaux is a beautiful town. Eminently walkable and such history! You’ll love it!

  2. I love the grandiose gates of many European cities so wonderfully preserved. You can picture people on horseback approaching the city with its grand entrance and imposing walls.

    • Hi Mark: The thing that boggles my mind more than anything is the AGE of these places. In the U.S. we think a 200 year old house is old, but in Europe it’s common to see a building from the 1400’s.
