There we were, are and going.......

This is a little bit of summer catchup spanning miles and smiles from Turkey, to Belgrade. A hint of Croatia, Italy and onto stunning South of France.

sunny 26 °C

Can't believe its been so long since our last entry - though allot has happened.

Our trip back from Turkey was long and arduous, especially for my accelerator foot which is developing RSI way too quickly. I am toying with either letting Boyana drive, or crossing my legs and using my left foot. After letting B drive, I elected to sacrifice the foot and take up steerage once more.

Nis:
A city lying south of Belgrade noted for good braais, a lovely park and a Shull thats a museum - and a concentration camp memorial.

Belgrade:
A great city in Summer. Home of Nole Djokovic, tennis superstar; and great people and food. Though like any large city it can, at times -be seriously crazy.
We spent most of our time visiting family and friends.

Spectacular places attract attention!
We stopped briefly on Monaco's top road. Our noses' wanted to jump right in. We hung around just long enough time to imagine ourselves coverting with the rich and famous, winning on the Poker Tables and living Tax Free. It was Friday and the weekend of the Royal Grimaldi wedding.
The bride marrying our Charlene ( South African olympic swimmer). The Groom. A Gay boy unable to publicly be accepted as such.
For a brief moment we considered playing the role of "I am here for my cuzzy Charlenes' wedding" to get into the Royal Wedding, BUut we had run out of space in our wagon.

Onto Sainte Maxime to meet our friends Bill and Linda who are super kind to let us stay here, and to host us for a super weekend. Their house here is great and in walking distance of the town. We are blown away with the charm, beauty and culture of the area.

Port Grimaud:
A small port just before ST Tropez.
We didn't spend much time but it puts the VA waterfront property to shame. Its beautiful.

Saint Tropez:
Made famous after Brigitte Bardot's 1956 film And " God Created Woman " the rich and famous flocked here; it seems they stopped doing so about 10 years back until fairly recently when New Money entered looking to show off the pretty young things and super yachts ( and chilled Vodkas) .
Its prestine beauty here with too many crowds for our liking - but a super experience.

. I took a breath and went with it. B leading the way. Although the weather was good I could see her glow. It made her much easier to track as she gracefully presented herself in each gallery.

A bit more to follow in South of France
