France

   

  Photos from a week and a half in France in October 2009.  I had some free time in Paris for informal sightseeing on my own, but then joined an Astrid Baur's French Castles Tour – Châteaux of Paris and the Loire Valley for a week of conducted travel.

The link to the Pictures File is below the Sample Images.  A Destinations Map and a Table of Contents are provided below that, both in on-screen and in printable forms.

Destinations Map

The tour began with visits to major attractions in Paris and then moved south to the valley of the Loire River, to a home base at Céré la Ronde.  From there daily day trips fanned out to the castles and palaces of the Loire Valley. The pictures are presented in chronological order, the way the trip unfolded.
