Rainy walks in Strasbourg

Almost 18 years ago I came for the first time to Strasbourg to meet Isabelle’s family and ask her to marry me.   Our very first walk (first day) started at this cemetery and ended up in downtown Strasbourg.   That was a magic (nervous) time for me.  I recreate the walk every year with… Continue reading Rainy walks in Strasbourg

How to be a Panographer

I promised to post a “how to” make panography (this is not pornography… big difference although I imagine someone might have combined the two… Sorry… I will not)…  so here it is.   I saw this done by happenstance several years back  and was intrigued by the “look” (was not searching for something else and had a… Continue reading How to be a Panographer

Vacation and Long Walks

Today was fantastic… (very little shopping… we still did some… you know… les soldes… but it was limited).   My vacations are a time for walking… I mean really walking.   I love walking around and exploring… (plus I have to walk off all of the pastries I am eating).     This is kind of “creepy” but google… Continue reading Vacation and Long Walks
