Grey Deys Thursdey - Part 2





Hello dear friends
again this week I'm in France.
The wonderful architecture
is a feast for my soul.

Being a New Zealander
and coming from a country with
a young history
I'm in awe of the beauty
of these medieval buildings.




My photos this week
are from two medieval french towns
I visited his year






 The first is Provins
which is a hilltop town
on the ancient trade routes
in the
Seine-et-Marne department
 of the Île-de-France.

I will do a separate post later as I
want to share more photos
and impressions of my visit!
 



the second is
Noyers-sur-Serein
which is listed in the
"ten most beautiful villages" 
in France
 and I fell in love with it's charm!

Notice the reflections in the
ancient Gothic windows below.



I'm linking to James of

A big welcome to my new followers
and thank you for being here!
It's lovely to see new faces
popping up on my side bar.

À bientôt


be kind to one another

Shane

I LOVE LOVE LOVE your travel photos....I've incorporated many travel photos in the past from when I lived in Italy recently...I went to Paris, but didn't, sadly, get to some of the smaller towns, which I know would be my favorite, so I am IN LOVE with your photos/trip.

Love/hugs/blessings,
Lana

Beautiful photos of grey! Some days I'm envious of your regular trips to France, but then I think how lucky I am to have my granddaughters living in the same town as I do. Life has plusses and minuses everywhere, doesn't it?
So glad you share the beauty with us.

J'adore these amazing photos of these wonderful old buildings Shane - next best thing to actually being there.
Just think you may have to really thank your daughter for allowing such wonderful opportunities.
I know I would feel at home in these buildings so very much!
Sending hugs and love,
Suzy

I love visiting French medieval towns and villages - and there are so many of them remaining that I don't think we'd ever run out! Perhaps we need to get a bunch of gals together and go see them all, LOL!

Lovely 'grey' pics - you just know I'm swooning!

Hugs - Mary X

I have been to many places in Europe but not France, it is on my bucket list of places to see. Beautiful!!!

Hello Shane. I've just left England after two months and miss my home there and miss Europe in general. Your lovely photos remind me of my European roots and my home there. I think I'll just hang out here for a while and look at your photos. :)

Pondside said...

There must be a little of the Francophile in every blogger! Your photos are lovely and make me wish to visit again soon.

Mary Howell Cromer said...

So, so beautiful, with such eye appeal...I live in a wee tiny historical town and yet I really find nothing much here to photograph...rather mundane. What you are seeing and sharing, is very worthy of the share~

Haworth said...

Your images of those villages are just so lovely, Shane. How lucky you were to visit there! Thank you so much for sharing them here.
