Here is a link to information on the church, I am not sure what information you are searching for in your request. The photo is of a mosiac over the doorway to the interior of the church. When the sun hits it, it glows.

Train to Cesky Sternberk Castle

Thanks for sharing! I'm sure you're right about the inadequacy of the photos compared to being there in person, but still, the photos are great for those of us unlikely to see these things firsthand. It's so kind of you to take the time to share in situ. All the same, you're missed back home! Peace, Jeremy

Christmas in Paris
I can only imagine how cold it was. You paint a nice verbal picture of your trip to Sacre Coeur. Along with the photos, I definitely "get the picture." Safe travels. Bob

You are having too much fun! Sounds great. Two of my grandaughters are in Paris now with a college class. Good to hear from you. When will you be home? Take care, Virginia

Lovely to read about your curiosity, oomph and initiative. The photos certainly enhance your comments. In July 1971 I remember the train station at Irun and the poignant sunset seen from San Sebastián. It was near the end of a 10-week backpacking trip (on $5 a day!). The golden globe of the sun dropping into the sea, like a huge orange

paris subways do not like US credit cards
Hi Bill and Nancy! Always fun to read about your travel adventures. When Paul and I went to Paris a few years ago, we had a similar problem. The subway machine did not accept any of our credit cards and would only accept Euro coins. We were short the coins and had quite an adventure trying to get change after 6 pm. Glad things worked out for you.

Ha! Nancy, Destroyer of Ticket Machines! What a great story. I especially like the bit where Nancy disappears and ninjas into the shadows once she realized the problem. I'm glad it worked out in the end.

Glad you were able to visit the City of Light for five days. I trust that generally you found the French to be more friendly than you anticipated. Going back to my backpacking days in 1971 and more recently in 2005, 2007, 2010, I found them to be agreeable and helpf

We loved Bratislava when we were there in 1996. It is such an easy town to walk around in. Also we bought a beautiful blue glass and gold plate which is one of our favorite things. I think the statues must have been added since then.

Enjoyed Christmas all over again!
Dear Bill and Nancy, I really like seeing your blog with pictures and comments. You travel well and will an eye for really seeing the sights. I am not sure I would have understood the paper about Newtown but it was amazing to think how far tenderness and care can wander. All is well here with an inch or two of snow. I hope you enjoy your travels as much as I do. Colleen

Nice story. You two already have sooo many wonderful stories that enrich your lives. Nice to hear from you.

Kinda ironic that Bill is nonchalantly leaning (at his ease) against the "man at work" sign. So typical of Bill to be lazy and doing nothing...some people! Of course, knowing Bill, the pose was intentionally ironic, eh?
