Sasoki Soaps has travelled – the Supervisors and the Shed have been left in the care of friends while E and I have travelled through England, Paris and Portugal over the last 3 1/2 weeks. We walked – a LOT!!! And took a lot of photos…
Firstly, through Norfolk graveyards – I met the relatives and, down a country lane, we found the little Church where I was baptised half a century ago. The Church is deserted, and the bones of my great grandparents rest peacefully behind it.
We visited English Castles, rainy beaches, very fine tea shops, and E learned about scrumping apples for the pie –
In Paris, we walked a LOT! Up and down 5 flights of stairs to our apartment,
past the Eiffel Tower, with a kangaroo looking on,
– then on Ludovic’s Airbnb walking tour, (https://www.airbnb.com.au/experiences/43) we walked through some really funky out-of-the-way cafe’s and bars, and learned a lot!
In Portugal, we walked even more!! Up and down hills and steps, from the idyllic cottage near Sintra where we stayed
to more amazing castles, palaces and phenomenal gardens with tiles and tiles and gargoyles and tiles –
From there we spend 36 hours in Porto visiting friends, who packed more into our hours than we could have imagined!
And finally to Lisbon for the last leg, where I attended a Conference on Nutrition and ate a lot of Portuguese tarts : )
And of course walked and walked and walked – Portugal is very hilly!
You can see I made excellent use of the Dubai camera, I may still do a post of the lovely washing pictures, or the dogs, cats & ducks, or all the incredible gardens.
It’s a wonderful world!!
