When I went to France last October we hit all the tourist destinations in Paris – including the Mont Saint Michel. This “Mount Saint Michael” is quite the tourist hotspot and you may find a plethora of shops and vendors around the premises, as well as historical guides… for a price. Now how does this relate to wildlife? While there, a companion of mine happened upon a ladybug – and *SNAP!* we have the picture below – the French LadyBug of Mont Saint Michel.
While in Normandy, France I had the chance to take many pictures of the Mont Saint Michel, many of which are of it’s interiors – long, winding, and shadowy corridors that seem to go on and on forever.
Our first video-blog post!
Composed below is a collection of photographs captured around various regions of France and mouse-clicked for this video. The accompanying music is The Bells of St. Anne de Beaupre, performed by Paul Pitman from Musopen.org: the Public Domain music collection site.
Introducing a brand-new Adventure Writer feature I’ve come up with, Travel Reviews! Sure, they’re nothing new, but it’s one more thing to add!
Each post will include a gallery of pictures, descriptions, and more!
To start this off, we’ll take a look at Ireland. While there I explored the Southern half of the country, never entering the territory of Great Britain.
We drove along beautiful green pastures – the deepest and most continuous strain of greens I’ve ever seen. Long green hills, quiet countryside, and the ocean crashing up against the cliffs to the edge of the island – creating a thoroughly tranquil atmosphere. It is only until you get into cities such as Dublin, that this image is disrupted, and you enter the city-side of Ireland.
Another peak at our Journal de Photo!
This time with the famous Arc de Triomphe’s near-twin (and older sibling) – the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel. Built to commemorate the one and only Napoleon Bonaparte.
Explore France as you’ve… never seen it before? Decide for yourself!
All this month and next, Adventure Writer Blog is bringing you pictures straight from France!
And to commemorate this event… our first picture!
