The Keyhole to the Old City – Stuck in Customs

The Keyhole to the Old City

Travel Planning

Are you much of a travel planner?  I kind of am… I think I’m accidentally kind of an expert on this… people always ask me these questions and I should write a little ebook or something.  I have one loosely planned… maybe 2013 or something!  But I do have a title… it’s a quote from Buddha:  “It’s better to travel well than to arrive.”

Daily Photo – The Keyhole to the Old City

This is the second photo I have posted from Montpellier.  I have a lot more to process… it’s a beautiful town!

We were staying with a very nice older couple and had spent the evening in the city.  Before leaving, we were not quite sure how to get back to their home.  After asking, we got one of those very quick but complex set of directions.  They are the sort of directions people give when they have lived somewhere their entire life…  They mention landmarks that they are quite sure we have already seen and give dire warnings about going down the wrong fork in, oh, you know the place….so on and so forth… and then we were thrust out into the cruel city… not really having any sure way of finding our way home…  but, I figured, as long as we were lost, we would take photos along the way.  That is when I saw this…
