"Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost" Part 2

Here's a final wrap of the places I've been to in the past few weeks. This is a look at some more cool stuff from travels with my parents, and I promise next post I've got a few sewing/quilting type pictures ready from my France adventures so far.
 
 
This was a beautiful fountain in Nimes, which my blogger friend Kitty happened to take a picture of too, when she visited France earlier this month. I did this funny Vanna White pose for you Kitty. :)

 
This is a Roman temple in Nimes and one of the most well preserved left standing. It was very beautiful even with the cheesy film playing inside!

 
This is the front of the temple, with my parents at the top. This building was humongous and awesome.

 
I also really liked this too, the Roman amphitheater in Nimes. Can anyone believe it was built around 70 AD?!

 
The last city my parents and I travelled to was Marseille, which is sort of like San Francisco for all of you familiar with California. This arch was on our way to the old port and I couldn't pass up a photo opportunity.
 
And that, sadly, is a wrap of my mini adventures in France for now. The next post on here might not be for a while, since my fall break just started and tomorrow I leave for two consecutive trips, to Barcelona and Milan! I'll have to take good photos, as I know these cities have many beautiful sights to offer. I'm off to travel a world I know I was destined to see.

  1. I'm so jealous you had good weather!! Haha that's so cool we were in the same place :) What did you think of that statue wearing the Maison Carree on its head?

  2. Nines is such a great little city. I live all of France. I'm a new reader. Are you on semester abroad and are you from California? I live in Orange County.

  3. Yep Diane, I'm from California but I'm currently abroad for the rest of a college semester in Aix-en-Provence.
    It was just too cool of a concept Kitty, two people who have only met online being in the same place almost half way across the world, so I had to memorialize it. I thought the fountain and the statue were very beautiful, though I wish I could have learned about the creation, meaning and all of that. It really makes for something nice to look at in the middle of the plaza if you will. I can't wait to catch up on where you've been, I'm behind!
