  • We’ve ended up in Uzes, France for 6 nights by an incredible stroke of luck. The author Janelle McCullough describes it best:⁣
⁣
“Uzes, with its high towers and narrow medieval streets, is a place lost in time. It’s almost as if it were built in the back lot of a Hollywood studio to resemble a French village. But I assure you, it’s not. It’s authentic Provence.” ⁣
⁣
Since I was so excited our first night, I celebrated with an ample amount of local rose, which led to a laid back first day. We were back on tour track today by visiting the Wednesday market in Uzes, then driving over to Avignon for the day. We walked along the Bridge of Avignon and toured the Palace of the Popes, which is where the Roman popes fled Rome in the 14th century and built the largest gothic palace in Europe. It came to be the seat of Western Christianity at the time. ⁣
⁣
This spot is unreal. Absolutely incredible. But I’m not going to lie...after toting a whiny Baby L on my hip all day in non-stroller friendly locations, I’m ready to dive right back into that rose tonight! ⁣

  • (Eng. below👇) И снова здравствуй, Прованс! Так как в прошлый раз мне позарез хотелось побывать на цветущих лавандовых полях (можно посмотреть в сохранённых сториз), то нужно было ехать в конце июня (когда цветение в самом разгаре) и героически переносить 38-градусную жару и "сражаться" за самые фотогеничные места с толпами туристов🙈(но чего только не сделаешь для заветных фотографий😂) В этот же раз выбор пал на Авиньон и начало марта оказалось наиболее удачным периодом туда податься: не так много людей и идеальные погодные условия (+18 и солнечно). Так что, вот вам лайфхак при планировании путешествия на юг Франции: если целью поездки не является пляжничество, то лучше ехать весной, если же хотите ещё и в море покупаться - то конец сентября- октябрь (море ещё тёплое, а за пляж платить не надо😉) // And hello again Provence! As I've already fulfilled my dream of visiting the blooming lavender fields (see saved stories) there was no need to visit the region during the steaming summer heat. The beginning of March turned out to be the perfect time: +18•, no crowds of tourists and Avignon in all its glory. #frenchlifediaries

  • The Avignon Papacy! (Exterior)

My visit to the Palais des Papes in Avignon was a Masterclass - a thorough education - in how force is not, necessarily, the ultimate arbiter of human affairs my military education has made it to be.

The Avignon Papacy came about because King Phillip IV of France deposed the Pope in Rome. Subsequent Popes then aligned themselves with the military might of France, and relocated the Papacy to Avignon. So far so good for the above postulates of my military education.

In visiting Avignon, (I have already been to the Vatican City in Rome), I thought I was visiting a city that competes with the Vatican City in splendour, in magnificence, and in general awesomeness. This is when the tenets of my military education took a knock, because none of the rooms at the Palais des Papes in Avignon,  competes with even the most measly room at the Vatican.

In one of the children stories we read growing up, a Judge awarded disputed custodianship of a musical instrument to a Hare, because the Hare had played a beautiful tune from the instrument. Meanwhile, the Crow, the other disputant and real owner of the instrument, played a very dull tune.

In this vein, it would seem then that the inspired architecture and artistry at the Vatican, attests more to God's favour than the rundown (in comparison) look of the Palace of the Popes in Avignon.

To be sure, a true scholar would investigate the causes of these indiscrepancies, and come up with a more sophisticated answer. But the general public will only see the differences in magnificence, and think the Vatican favoured by God, and therefore the Legitimate Papacy on Earth. #avignonpapacy #avignon #palaisdepapes #palaceofthepopes #stpeterscathedral #rome #vaticancity #vatican #pope #popeclement #popeboniface #papacy #goth #gothic #architecture #france 🇫🇷 #pontdavignon #education #learning #history #travel #travelgram #tripstagram #lesson #masterclass

  • Avignon Arrival

Avignon TGV Station is a few miles outside Central Avignon, so on your arrival you have to either take a bus, a "small train," or walk 1 hour to get to the actual city. I took the "small train" to Gare D'Avignon Centre. It is supposed to cost €1.00, but I had my Avignon City Pass which makes all museums and all public transportation free.

I will tell you something else about France, there are no barriers at the train stations, and no one comes to check the tickets on-board. I am especially aggrieved by this for two reasons: the first one a public spirited reason, and the second one is a personal one.

1. The government, or companies, are not realising their full potential revenue because of this. It's like going to the River to collect water with a Sieve. That's exactly what it is like!

2. I lost £10.00 in changing my ticket to a specific date and time for my return to Marseille from Avignon. I had, in error, selected a following day return, instead of same day. So I paid that £10.00 penalty, when it seems to me after my travel there, that no one in France even has to pay for train travel! Such unnecessary losses tug at your heart strings! #avignon #tgv #tgvinoui #train #trains #trainspotting #marseille #gardon #roman #gaul #architecture #france 🇫🇷 #avignonpapacy #palaisdepapes #riverrhone #history #provence #lavender #festival #avignontourisme #pontdavignon #education #learning #travel #travelgram #tripstagram

⁠
Connaissez-vous les avantages de vivre sur une Péniche ? ⁠
⁠
-  Le prix très inférieur à celui d’un appartement à surface équivalente. Bien que le prix suive l’évolution des prix de l’immobilier, il ne faut cependant pas perdre de vue que vivre sur une péniche est avant tout une philosophie de vie. ⁠
-  Toujours au plan financier, il n’existe pas de frais d’acte, la péniche étant un bien meuble. Économie : Entre 7 et 8% du prix d’achat comparé à un bien immobilier. Nous conseillons cependant de recourir à un avocat pour l’avant contrat et l’acte de vente. Coût : de l’ordre de 3 000 € H.T. ⁠
-  Vivre au cœur ou autour de Paris dans un habitat indépendant sans copropriété est un luxe. Pas d’assemblée de copropriétaires, pas de charges collectives et pas de mésentente. ⁠
-  La solidarité entre voisins et la bonne entente doivent également être cités, tant elles sont rares dans l’habitat collectif. ⁠
-  La plupart des péniches offrent une terrasse. ⁠
-  On stationne souvent sa voiture ou sa moto devant ou à proximité immédiate. ⁠
-  Beaucoup de « pénichards » disent avoir l’impression d’être comme en vacances. En effet indépendamment du sentiment d’indépendance, la présence de l’eau est apaisante. Sur la Marne, ou sur la Seine à l’Ouest de Paris, certains endroits sont des oasis de verdure. On concilie ainsi résidence principale et résidence secondaire.⁠

  • At #palaisdepapes you can take the tour with an #iPad that shows you a 360° view of what the room you're in looked like hundreds of year ago. It was cool, but it had the effect of taking you out of the present experience and keeping your face buried in a gadget. #tourism #technology

  • The Low Down On The 24 Hour City Pass!

The 24 Hour Dublin City Pass, when I used it 2 years ago, did not live up to its billing as a way to save money. I can't remember what exactly was wrong with it, but I am 120% sure it wasn't worth the €29.00 I wasted buying it.

Part of the reason may have been that it did NOT give me free entry to the main attractions. The promise of free travel on public was ridiculous as well, as all the attractions are contiguous to each other.

I can assure you though that, all the 24 Hour French City Passes I have bought previously have been great value for money - Marseille and Toulouse. And in buying my 24 Hour Avignon City Pass, I have calculated that it is going to be worth it. The free public transport is not even a consideration for me here - everything is next to each other in Avignon.

But my expectation is that the 3 main attractions in Avignon, which are free to enter with the Pass, offsets the €21.00 I have paid for my 24 Hour City Pass. I am just giving you the "breaking even Maths," there are more than 3 attractions that are fully free with this Pass. So you will not just break even, you will get in the black. When I return, I will rate the Avignon City Pass for you, to determine whether it's value for money or a fraud as was the Dublin City Pass.

But on your own travels, don't take the Tourism Office's word as gospel truth, do your own due diligence before you are made to buy some ridiculous City Pass that will, unnecessarily, add to your expenses. #avignon #provence #france 🇫🇷 #tourism #citypass #avignonkey #avignonpapacy #palaisdepapes #travel #travelgram #tripstagram #tourisme #toulouse #marseille #gardon #roman #gaul #architecture #riverrhone #rhoneriver #pontduavignon #rome #dublin #money #saving #museum #entryfee

  • Carelessness Is Costly:

At long last, I have finally contrived to ride on the Train à Grande Vitesse - the TGV! This is Europe's record holder fastest train, so it naturally figured in my avowed quest to experience the exceptional.

But, I swear, there is a group of evil little beings in the universe, whose only job is to observe people who like to travel cheaply, and cause them to make costly mistakes on their travels. I am convinced of this!

This trip on the TGV, is going to be £10.00 more expensive than it should have been owing to my carelessness. Instead of a same day return booking, I chose a return trip on the following day by (costly) mistake. Marseille is going to be my base of operations where I will be returning to daily.

So to correct the booking so close to the day would have cost me a £13.00 penalty fee. A refund and rebooking was the cheaper option. But still, on the refund, I lost £10.00 from the original £30.00 I paid for the Marseille - Avignon - Marseille TGV trip. Having then paid for the correct trip at the same £30.00 as earlier, it means that I am really paying £40.00 for a £30.00 trip. A grievous situation, if ever there was one, for a person who prides himself on travelling the world on a shoestring budget.

If you are saying £10.00 is nothing, why don't you, and 1 Million of your friends, give me £10.00 each, then we will talk. #planning #poorplanning #travel #travelgram #tripstagram #shoestring #budget #bus #air #train #marseille #avignon #tgv #avignonpapacy #babyloniancaptivity #palaisdepapes #rhoneriver #pontduavignon #money #moneymatters #stupidtax #greed #firstbecomeslast #first #last #provence #france 🇫🇷

  • "Habemus Papam!" .. Feelin' papal today -- They call this the "La Fenêtre de l'Indulgence" (Indulgenced Window). It was from here where the Popes would stand from to greet the crowds for almost 70 years during the #AvignonPapacy - a time in the 1300s where under political pressure from the King of France, the seat of the papacy left Rome and relocated to Southern #France.

It was here that papal coronations, triple benedictions, special indulgences and elaborate occasions were administered via this window to the masses.

    It was here that papal coronations, triple benedictions, special indulgences and elaborate occasions were administered via this window to the masses.

  • 2탄. 따라~ 교황님의 성입니다~ 영상에 담기에는 어마어마한 규모! 여타의 유적들이 주는 느낌과는 또 다르게 압도적인 느낌이예요.
믿음이 있는 분들이 오셨다면 훨씬 더 감동이 컸겠다 싶은 생각도 들었던 교황님의 성.
놀란건 맞는데 내 말투 왜이래?! 😆🕍✝️

  • 아직 교황님의 성은 보이지도 않는데 감탄사가 끊이지 않는다. 감히 엄두나 냈을까. 경이로움에 저절로 감탄사만 터져나올뿐. 🕍
