This was my second visit and first overnight in Avignon. It is a lovely city with two main sights. The famed Pont d’Avignon about which the children’s song was composed and the Palace of the Popes where the papacy resided in the 14th century to evade chaos on Italian soil.
Reflecting on the statue of Virgin Mary, I saw her finger pointed at the people on the square below and all I could think of is a hat she was so upset about “No, no, I did not have sex with that man.”

As a World traveler and trains, planes, & automobile geek, I have embraced every opportunity to explore this amazing planet. As I write this, I realized vividly how far I have come from growing up in a dysfunctional family in a small Swiss town to living in the San Francisco Bay Area with my husband Greg and our pets Stella and Oscar. I am very fortunate to live the American Dream, having made a career our of my passion for travel and tourism.
