Saturday was February’s photo an hour date. I didn’t take part on Twitter because I was in France for most of the day and didn’t want to buy a data package, but I did take photos ready for uploading to a blog post. I had actually forgotten about it until Jan said “don’t forget to take a photo every hour”… at 20 past 11! By then I had missed just over two hours worth of photos! So I decided to wait 10 minutes and make it a photos at half past day, rather than on the hour. As a result, getting up and breakfast are missing and my “day” starts shortly after checking out of the hotel.
11:30 a.m. Just left our hotel in Dijon. The red phonebox (with no phone in it) is a meeting point for tour buses.
12:30 p.m. Rainy Dijon. We had just bought tickets from the Tourist Information office to climb the tower you see in this photo.
1:30 p.m. After a tea/coffee break, we’re back out walking in the rain.
2:30 p.m. Our tower tickets were for 2 p.m. At this stage we were at the bottom of the tower waiting for the guide to open the door and let us out.
3:30 p.m. At the museum of Fine Arts, formerly the Ducal Palace.
4:30 p.m. Another museum! This time The Museum of Burgundian Life.
5:30 p.m. All museumed out, we headed to a nearby bar.
6:30 p.m. Still at the bar. There were lots of these drawings on the wall.
7:30 p.m. After collecting the suitcase from the hotel, we picked up some food for the train journey home.
8:30 p.m. On the train reading Anna Karenina.
9:30 p.m. Back in Basel and on the train home – Dijon is only just under 1.5 hours away!
10:30 p.m. So happy to be all snuggly in my PJs!
That was the last photo I took – I did read for a little afterwards, but I was snuggled up with the lights out long before it would have been time to take the next photo.
