These are favorite images from Mike and Jackie's travels throughout the World. This web page includes some photos from Amsterdam where we flew to start our voyage. France was unique in the mixture of venues, most notably, a 60-mile cruise up the Gironde river to Bordeaux.  This was possible because we were on a small(er) ship that could navigate the river and fit under the bridges. Bordeaux, on a Sunday morning, is beautiful.

The other venues included small villages like Concarneau and Pont Aven, and wine country like St. Emilion.
