Photographs van France, summer 2006

We come to France more often but this year we make a longer trip, almost 4 weeks. France is a big country and offers so many different landscapes, culture and history that a few weeks are actually far too few. Via the Massif Central we head south to Carcassonne and then back via Monaco along the west side of France. It is a beautiful trip.
Here all all the photographs of this journey that we use on the website.

06 & 07 June, we leave for France, to Vezelay and then the Auvergne (Travelogue)
