Our Summer Road-Trip To France; Part 2 – Alsace Towns

Visiting Alsace Villages Having a vague idea of the beauty that we were about to encounter in Colmar, the town where we were staying for the Alsace section of our French road trip, it was a little surprising that once you are away from the ancient colourful town centre-ville, the rest of this UNESCO listed…

The Island Of Thassos In Greece; Stuff You Don’t Want To Miss!

The Greek island of Thassos had its hey-day in the ’90s then tourism seemed to dry up (perhaps there were too many shell-suit fires in that heat?).
