We were welcomed by the director of the Swedish House, Åsa Ekwall. The Swedsih Ambassador, Veronika Wand-Danielsson welcomed the spring and we also made a hurrah for the 70th birthday of the Swedish King. The crowd had the pleasure to listen to a couple of spring songs…

The history of the Brittany region is long and there are many landmarks to remind you of it. One of the more famous ones is the site just north of the city of Carnac – there are some 3.000 Neolithic standing stones, menhirs, and this is considered as the world's largest collection.

On a fortunately quite sunny day, we took the ferry from Quiberon to Belle-Île-en-Mer, an island situated some 14 km (7.6 nautical miles, 8.7 land miles) from the coast – a 45 minutes trip by ferry. The island measures 17 km (10.6 miles) by 9 km (5.6 miles). It was part of the mainland until ...

The exact number of islands in the gulf can be discussed – some of the smaller ones disappear during the ebb tide -, but you may count around 40. Except the two larger ones, Île-aux-Moines and Île-d'Arz, most of the islands are privately owned and / or uninhabited. Île-aux-Moines and Île-d'Arz ...

The Eiffel Tower is of course one of the symbols of Paris, one of its landmarks. When things “happen”, fortunate or (much) less fortunate, the night colours may change. The day of the Brussels killings, the colours became Belgian and I published the above photo on my Facebook site.

I may be repeating myself, but living close to what once was planned to be the Olympic village – if Paris had got the 2012 games – I'm so impressed by what's now going on, how the old shunt yard has been transformed into a park (already very popular) and how the buildings around the park, ...

Starting with La Roche-Bernard. This nice little town, some 20 km (12 miles) from the sea, on the river Vilaine, was obviously founded by a Viking, Bern-hart (meaning strong, brave as a bear) in 919 as a strategic defensive place. The successors remained and swore allegiance to the Duke of ...

I haven't quite finished with Brittany, but will make e little interruption. Just have to illustrate the SPRING, again of course in “my park”. (A already showed the top photo on Facebook. Sorry for the repeating.) All the flowers were waiting for a visit, but not all were as lucky as the one ...

I'm back from a trip to Brittany where I met some blogger friends (who unfortunately have given up blogging). As expected in this region, I met various weather conditions, but basically the (rather chilly) spring was present. I spent my nights at Arzon and at Arrandon and visited a lot of other ...

In front of the Saint-Sulpice Church (see here) you can find the impressive Saint-Sulpice Fountain, designed by Louis Visconti (1791-1853), who for a while, under Napoleon III, was the official architect of the Louvre, but also is known for the Molière Fountain (see here) and especially for the ...

The Statue of Liberty is back in the Luxembourg Gardens. Actually it's a new copy. The previous original one (offered by the creator, F.A. Bartholdy) stood here until 2012, when it was transferred to the Orsay Museum (see also previous post). This is not the first time I post (see here) about ...
