I am going to slowly upload pictures from my European Adventures. Here are a few.
Here is the 12th Century Abbaye Saint-Michel de Frigolet I stayed at while in Southern France for the Willa Cather Conference.
Here is another view.
I stayed in an old nun bunk room. They have changed part of the Abbey into lodging to earn some money. Fairly austere, but it was amazing.
Here is the Palais des Papes in Avignon, France. It was amazing to see. Having just been to the Vatican two weeks previous, I could only imaging what it would
have been like in its glory days. Oh, and speaking of glory days. I have lost almost all my French from my early college days. I pretended to know some, but no one believed I was speaking French.
Here is the great hall.
The best view was from the ferris wheel.
But the ferris wheel was also wonderful. I think everything was better because we were in Southern France.
Here is a picture from Arle, another place we went. I will post those pictures soon, but this is a preview. I now understand why people rave about the French countryside. I was overwhelmed by the beauty.
