And the view on the Fort St Andre
A charming town in Haute Provence. Some genius put a star on a cable high above the town between the cliffs and now they are famous for the star 🙂
Their altitude is 634 meter but it looks as if they can see the full 600 meters down..
Not the only Oleander, the whole of Provence seems packed with them, especially on the coast.
Guess who visited Spar? Looks good to me, but then I bought it..
The chocolate was still in my bag, its from the Czech Republic. A rich chocolate and chestnut butter filling, hmmm..
It is the Salzach flowing past my window there. It makes you understand why so many lieder in Austria were written about the rivers and streams.
Its his birthday today, so here is a picture for him. It is the stadium at Schoenbrun, – one of his palaces in Vienna 🙂
Odd isn’t it how leaders sometimes have the names of other countries.. Hollande, leader of France, Franz Joseph, leader of the Austro Hungarian Empire..
A tiny little enclave in Italy, San Marino is nevertheless the oldest constitutional republic in the world. The monastic community got their independence from the Roman Empire no less. On 3 September 301 🙂
Their motto is Libertas – freedom 🙂
This is what it looks like in San Marino
starting to get the idea of how they managed to convince the Romans to leave them alone?
The theme is expended on with more walls, towers, cliffs and castles
and then people and monks can also call on a higher power
Nothing like a fire on a chilly spring morning..
Doesn’t matter how small your country is, you get your own international code and EU number plate. You can also put an Afrikaans word on your Italian car to make it more romantic…
San Marino – Build good walls + Write a good constitution + Pray = Freedom
Seems ‘Most Serene’ to me 🙂
