A collection of where we have been and what we have seen in the last few days

Unfortunately whilst trying to upload the last of our pictures which I painstakingly numbered in order, the computer decided to add them in a complete muddle!!  Bloody computers!!

Any way here is where we went in the correct order:

Pic Du Midi
Millau Viaduc
San Sebastian

I will put under each photo where they are and you will have some idea of which ones we did first.

 This was our favourite waterding hole in San Sebastian, it used to be a bull ring years ago, above each french window is a number as this is where all the seats used to be.

  1. I almost feel as if I have been on holiday with you. Thank you for sharing

  2. Love the photos, I love travelling to France, unfortunately the rest of the family rely on my French to see us through. However, the photo of you on the ferry reminded me of when we last travelled home.....I didn't want to return.

  3. Sarah,

    Loved all the pics. It looks like it was an awesome vacation. Thanks for sharing it.
