1. Dunfermline, Scotland

My home town
I really should stop looking at pictures of Dunfermline and the Fife area. It makes me so homesick and sorry that I left to move to Canada in 1968

The people you meet
For such a short journey from France to Ireland, you sure did meet some interesting people! That to me is one of the best parts of travel, connecting with people from all over the world, and each one with a story worth telling.

Merci beaucoup, Frankie !
It was the nice road trip in France. I've met her by exchange work site and she is really passionate! I'm traveling by myself and I'd like to see the life in the local area. Before I was planning to take a bus to heading to my next place then she suggested this trip. So I paid the fee (same fare) to her. I took a lot of photos on the way and I made la tarte auxpeches for our lunch. The good things is I could lean many things in France on the way. I'm such a lucky Japanese tourist :)

Thanks for this comment. It's nice to be able to share!

I stumbled upon your travel blog of a couple of years ago but was delighted to see the photos and comments regarding Hanau. I was fortunate to be stationed in Hanau in the U.S. Army from 1969 - 1971. It was a great place to be and I truly had a great experience during that time. This had brought back a lot of good memories for me and I am glad that I found it. Jerome Terrell

anonymous request
You advertise for your area as a nice place to live, We are senior American Citizens who do not speak France but would like to learn. If your area is "rural, would we be able to study French language there? Is it Safe, easy to find apartment, not expensive to live there? Appreciate your advice. Thanks. Frankie's reply: No, there's no facility to study French in my rural area except for new immigrants

enjoying your trip
Hi, just want to say I'm enjoying your road trip. I haven't been on an adventure in years so I'm glad to go along on yours. Good descriptions about the scenery but how about local food? It'd be interesting to hear your views on what good or bad meals you're having and what they are, like I'm thinking there must be a lot of good seafood in Scotland? Enjoy!
