The private sections of the Nice beach front were…

marked by areas of umbrellas.

On the outside, looking into

St Peter’s Square at the

Vatican City in Rome.

My

Balls

Travel Theme.

~~~~~

I need to be circumspect with my wording this week.These concrete balls were found in Vienna,

according to my tags.

However, I manage to see these balls

very regularly, day or night,

along the main tourist/visitor section

of Geelong’s waterfront.

 

  Finally, some French balls from Avignon.

Black and White Challenge:

Letters-Q-or-R

~~~~~

Trafalgar Travel made it easy for us to enter…

places such as the Palace of Versailles and avoid long queues.

I was slightly tempted to ride around…

the French Riviera while we were…

staying in Nice.

~~~~~~

Some images from the

Palace of Versailles.

Whether this is…

solid gold…

gold plate or covered with gold paint…


the look and feel of this  palace and many other places

we visited, screamed extravagance.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Wish

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Wish

~~~~~

Three wishes.

I wish I could have seen this Bridge, however I guess there

were many who wished they had not

been so close or walked across it.

This was as close to Ponte Vecchio as I could get.

Se near …yet so far.

 

Finally, we had hoped to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower.

Crowds and time did not  permit.

We had to be content with the second level.

The honeymooners on our trip had dinner at the top

while the rest of us enjoyed ringside seats at The Moulin Rouge.

Week 76

Golden

During our travels through Europe last year…

versailles_palace_0303

we (and I mean all of us) could not get over how much

gold or gold paint was adorning the palaces we visited.

From our first look through the gates to…

versailles_palace_0228

these figures surrounding a large fountain…

versailles_palace_0235

the colour of gold was everywhere.
