A winery

The Alsace region produces 7 types of wine, 6 whites and a rosé in the village of Ottrott. This is a winery in Kintzheim, 50 km south of Strasbourg, in a traditional and well kept building. White wine therefore.

So, last Saturday, we went to this bird place in Kintzheim (try to pronounce it, lol). We saw amongst many others, this amazing pyguargue (in French), sea eagle in English.

Snowy on a hot day

Nice day out, to a bird conservation place in the mountains. Harry Potter fans, you will surely recognise Hedwig, the  snowy owl!

Petit train

Being quite aware of the city's history, architecture, art, and being a walker, I confess I've never taken this little tourist train.

The musée d'art moderne et contemporain, on the Ill river. Ever changing displays. Wear a mask to get in!

The Florence offices

Italian: gli Uffizi. What was built as an office building for florentine magistrates, is now one of the world's most famous museums. Wish I was there, as I did not see everything (too big, not enough time).  And to have a caffé!

Alternatively, you can probably use one as a tent... No fat-shaming meant!

The international coach station in Podgorica, Crna Gora. Crna Gora, country better known as Montenegro, one of the very few European countries where you get stamps on your passport. Missing my old passports full of colorful stamps, sigh.

Scary. The thing is wearing an old Venitian medical mask, used during the black death.

More, hopefully less scary, murals here.

Bassin d'Austerlitz

What was once and an international dock, boats from France, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, the Netherland, England and the northern countries, complete with shipyard, is no a recreation area, with music school, a mall, a public library, a beach in summer, many restaurants, a huge cinema...
