We took the pictures below in France in several cities while on our 2008 tour of England, France, and Germany during May and June.  We started in Paris, took a TGV train to Reims, picked up a rental car in Reims and drove to Verdun, stopped in Metz for the night, and arrived in Colmar which we used as our base for visiting sights nearby.  We also visited Strasbourg and several small towns and villages, and eventually drove to Bacharach, Germany.  We returned to Strasbourg from Germany where we dropped off our car, took the TGV back to Paris, and visited several sights in Paris before returning to London for the England leg of our trip.

If you haven't read the story of our trip to France this year you can read it here.
