Jo’s Monday Walk: Bilboa, Spain

Put your most comfortable walking shoes on! We’re walking today in Bilboa, Spain! The ship is nestled right up to the quay and after boarding the awaiting bus we are headed for the hills! Bilboa is surrounded by two mountain ranges, so we got a bird’s eye view of the city first! We were in…

Jo’s Monday Walk: Dinan, France

Our ship has docked in Saint Malo, France and I am off on an excursion to Dinan.  After about a half hour drive we arrived in the village square that still allows cars in it and a parked near a statue of a man on a horse…… so we learned all about him first. The…

Jo’s Monday Walk: Mont-Saint-Michel, France

I did a blog post on Mont-Sant-Michel, France for Thursday Doors  and had so many great pictures, I thought they deserved another post! My hubby and I have just returned from our first cruise and there were so many excursions to pick from we decided to go our separate ways to see more! Hubby chose…

Jo’s Monday Walk: Sandhills Horticultural Gardens

Jo’s Monday Walk: A Visit to Sissinghurst

Jo’s Monday Walk: Savannah, Georgia

It’s summer and we must have a  see of Savannah and all it has to offer! What is it about Savannah? Is it the Savannah River that draws our attention? Or the old warehouses to explore along the waterfront? Or the riverboats and cobblestoned streets? I think it is the Spanish moss hanging from the…

Jo’s Monday Walk: Mainz, Germany

We have been exploring the beautiful city of Mainz, Germany. In addition to the fantastic architecture, cobbled streets, historic churches, wine caves and restaurants, there are the sculptures sprinkled along our walk! If you are taking a river cruise this is one of the best cities to visit! The three and a half mile historic…

Jo’s Monday Walk: Me, You, and Agatha Christie

I’ve been wanting to do Jo’s Monday Walk FOREVER! One week I deliberately went out over the weekend to photo the “Hood.” When I returned home and downloaded all my photos they weren’t there! What was that about? Then the weather took a turn for the worse and I don’t do “Turned Worse Weather” at…
