Barbizon - France
« on: July 07, 2008, 11:57:15 AM »
Just returned from my holiday in Barbizon (France) where we have our family home. It’s just south of Paris, so close enough to go to the capital for shopping, theatres, etc, but far enough to enjoy the fresh air of the forest. A beautiful little village known as the ‘village des peintres’ (i.e. village of the painters) as many renowned painters were, and still are, based there. As the village is in one of the largest forest in France, there are loads of circuits for cyclists and pedestrians that are simply gorgeous. So relaxing and beautiful. And of course, many gourmet restaurants for those who enjoy good food.

Yes, you're right Georg. The only one missing was my dad as he's still in Abu Dhabi (although he will be going home for a couple of weeks next month).

No jr, that is Shannon and Cameron playing outside and that's me sitting down. The boy is CJ, Stephen's son.

It's a good job Mike took the photo after cleaning day!
