Shoot Three B - "Paris and Beyond!"

Cuba - too easy?? Nine of you thought so - Michelle, Elaine, Jim, Peyton, Mike, and Joani. Returning to my weekly were Carol, Michael, and Doris! 

"The Iron Maiden!"

What would a trip to Paris be without visiting the Eiffel Tower! My wife and I lucked out as the best way to see this iconic site is by way of a tour group - avoids standing in those long lines! However, all the tour groups were booked solid on the days we had open. We managed to find an American company that had two openings on our last night in Paris.

Skipping the lines for tickets meant more time on the Tower. 

I liked this angle I managed to catch while walking up to the #1 tourist activity in Paris.

Getting older?

Where in the World?

Here are some interesting facts about various countries of the world. Just where would I be?

Called Cymru in its native language.

42% of the South and West coastline is designated as 'Heritage Coast'.

The country is said to contain more castles per square mile than any other country in the world.

It is often termed "the land of song" the country is known for its harpists, male choirs, and solo artists.

Although football (soccer) is the more popular sport in the northern part, Rugby Union is seen as the national sport and is passionately played and followed by most of the country.

Cardiff's Millennium Stadium has the largest retractable roof of any sports stadium in the world.

Major Walter Clopton Wingfield is generally credited with inventing lawn tennis when in 1873 he designed and patented a similar game for his guests to play on his estate.

Interesting Fact. . .

The tooth is the only part of the human body 
that cannot heal itself.   

Leaving on a humorous note, I hope!

One nice thing about egotists: 

They don't talk about other people!
