Time gets away from me

So we went to France for the Battle of Nations in May, and it was an amazing experience.  The US team members and support staff were absolutely wonderful.  The people of France were wonderful.  The other teams were wonderful.  I didn’t want to come back.  I did take thousands of pictures, of course.  And then I told you not a damn thing about it, friends.  Let’s catch up a bit before I head off on another adventure.

The competition itself was in Aigues-Mortes, a small Medieval walled city in the Camargue. We had some time in the run-up to the competition to explore the region a bit and loved all of that part of France.

An adorable cat in the Necropolis in Arles, and the door into a chapel.

Gordes, the most beautiful town I’ve ever seen.
