2004 - European tour

May. 2004 . .... from this point here I started using my new digital camera and now can't be bothered scanning photos. This picture shows just another exotic town... somewhere north of Barcelona.
May. 2004 Mirrapaux in France, coming down from the Pyrannees. We just had to stop here for several nights so we could sit around and drink coffee and beer in these cafes.
Jun. 2004 Agmortes in Languedoc region france. A whole medieval walled town from the 1300's. Crusades left from this port... when it was a port. The sea is now 20 km to the south.
Jun. 2004 Cannes beach. Some topless sunbathing was observed. I was shocked.
Jun. 2004 The French Riviera. The playground of the rich. We didn't stay here for very long.
Jun. 2004 A roman aqueduct. Linda with baguettes (two). The car.
Jun. 2004 Boules. Lawn bowls but without the hats... or the lawn for that matter. All you needed was a bit of gravel, a few old french men....
Jun. 2004 Typical Tuscany. From one of our many day walks.
Jun. 2004 Cinque Terra region, Italian Riviera. We did a day walk along the coast past five picturesque old fishing townstowns.

Jun. 2004 Linda less than impressed on a Via Ferrati in the Dolomites.
