19/4/12 - I took this while down on the beach doing some filming for another project, everyone was huddled around chatting so i thought i was snap away while waiting for them, it turns out they were all waiting for me to finish snapping.

18/4/12 - This is the Maritime Museum in La Rochelle, we didn't get time to venture on board (an I don't think it was open) but i really liked the idea that a Maritime museum is on a ship (well 3 ships actually).

16/4/12 - Here are 2 of the towers in La Rochelle, the tower on the chain i so called because it had a chain which could be pulled across the harbour entrance, the tower with the pointy roof is called the Lanterne and used to be a lighthouse.

13/4/04 - It was just here we stopped to have the most amazing crepes, I successfully asked for them in the best French I could manage and a small crowd soon gathered to watch, have people never seen crepes being made before?

11/4/12 - This is La Rochelle, didn't know what to expect from this town before we arrived, but I can honestly say that its beautiful here, such a lovely place, the people are nice, the architecture is amazing and the food (crepes) was nice. I loved it here and could stay here a lot longer.

6/4/12 - Here is the inside of the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain. The Building designed by Frank Gehry is really amazing, an architectural wonder of the modern age, I could explore the building for hours.
The contents of the building however is very questionable, I will upset some art lovers here, sadly the Guggenheim museum contains very little art, balancing a mirror against a wall is NOT art, painting a series of black squares is NOT art and a string of fairy lights is NOT art.
The Guggenheim gets 10/10 for architecture but fails miserably at hosting any art with a harsh but honest score of 1/10. Solomon R Guggenheim would spin in his grave if he saw the rubbish in his buildings.
The toilets are pretty so its worth paying the €11 to see them.

30/3/12 - This is my second visit to La Coruna in Spain in the past year, I really like La Coruna, i always treats us well, this is the Torre de Hercules, the oldest working lighthouse in the world and the most westerly on mainland europe.

27/3/12 - While walking through Brugge we passed this field of daffodils, we were not sure what this place was but it had a church and a few other buildings so I imagine its some kind of monastery or something.
25/3/12 - This was my first trip to the city of Brugge and it was a good one, Brugge is such a lovely place, we had a little adventure getting to the city from the cruise ship in Zebrugge but that adds to the fun of the day. Brugge is such a beautiful place, with plenty of Chocolate shops to keep everyone happy.
