In June 2018 was the first time I had ever

The queue waiting to visit the Palace of Versailles.

Fortunately we were leaving.

Someone told me they came back near midnight

to get a tourist free photo of Trevi Fountain.


Tourists and locals alike mingle

on the corner opposite the

Amsterdam Railway Station.

MGW was nearly run down by a motorcyclist

who had run a red light.

She was lucky.
