Itís not world shattering John

Buy maybe someone would like to stay at one or two places

Maybe like me they canít walk too far

And depend on being near

And everywhere we stay if you can manage a bike

Itís a doddle

I just send Albert out on a bike, to shops, to run the hound .......one day Iíll follow him on a trike

My post was really not meant to be hurtful Aldra...........................just a late night thought about all those less fortunate than ourselves.

I am glad you are enjoying your travels.

Spooky travelled with us for 5 years and over 20,000 miles.He died aged 11 and is buried in Delphi in Greece.
Now that's a great age and a great adventure for a rabbit and I think he deserves a mention.

The best things in Life...........................are not Things !!

Life is really, really great Ö...........sometimes it's a bit sh*t............and then you die !!

No on both. Did four and a half months last year in Europe but just 5 weeks in the summer this year and two weeks back end (now) over on Flamborough Head on the Yorkshire coast.

Obernai on the wine route is a gem of a town

Free to overnight on the town ramparts , 5 min to the centre of the town

Water and toilets

We took the petite train to the war memorial and the great view over Obernia, but having done it we realised we could have just as easily driven up in the MH

We stayed two nights, and yesterday afternoon drove up to the convent of St Odile, dating back to the8th century

On the way down, itís at an altitude of 750 m , we stopped at a walkers car park in the forest for the night

This morning we drove back to Obernai, to the market and to visit the cathedral , beautiful and unexpected in a small town

We are now on a wine Domaine, beautiful views over the vine yards , and eating the remaining grapes that have not been harvested,

The weather remains fantastic for October

A few pictures , note the storks nest

If that's the Mont Saint Odile with the Pagan Wall, then we haven't been there for 11 years.

The view from the terrace of Hohenburg Abbey is superb., and the painted walls and ceiling of Chappelle des Larmes are magnificent. You will have had a great day.

Ps

You can walk around the ramparts

And itís not a cathedral just a large beautiful church

Market day is Thursday, and a brilliant market

A couple more photos of the view from the memorial and St Odile

It was a bit misty on both occasions but that added to the atmosphere

Actually non from St Odile, I left my I pad in the van
