Les Invalides Paris



Les Invalides in Paris was commissioned in 1670 by the 
French King Louis X1V
as a hospital for injured soldiers.




Napoléon Bonaparte's ashes are contained

in his tomb beneath the magnificent golden dome.

This is an interesting monument to visit when


you're in Paris.

Our family visited on a beautiful
summer's day last year.
There was something of interest for all ages.

Red on the Northern Motorway





On a recent trip up north we followed
this old classic Chevrolet.....
we followed and followed.....
(boys and their cars)!

My husband was fascinated with it
as his younger brother had a Chevvy
like this when they were in their twenties.
I guess it took him back to those carefree days!

Great Journeys start with Small Steps




The main hall of
Auckland International Airport




The aeroplane is the Percival Gull which belonged to

Jean Batten - an early New Zealand aviatrix in the 1930's.

She made the first-ever solo flight 

from England to New Zealand in 1936.

What a great achievement!
