Travel photo 10

This is the last day of the ten-day photo challenge in which Su from Zimmerbitch invited me to participate. Ten travel photos with no explanation. The only requirement is to nominate someone else to do the same and pingback to my blog. But it’s the last day and almost Christmas, so I’ll just ask anyone who wants to participate to do so and I hope you’ve enjoyed the series.

    I don’t know which, but presumably a French chateau, Janet? 🙂 🙂

  2. restlessjo says:

    Ha! I should read the tags first! Usually they’re at the bottom so I always forget to look at the top. Merry Christmas 🙂 🙂

  3. Ahhhh … a peaceful estate in the Burgundian countryside.

  4. That was a lovely 10-day arm-chair tour, Janet. Thanks for taking us along. This house looks beautiful and quite posh.

  5. Su Leslie says:

    Thanks for joining in Janet. I knew I’d enjoy your photos — and I have.

    • I’m glad and thanks for inviting me. Hopefully next year will bring lots more travel photos, even if “just” from the Southwest. I see from my world clock that you’re already into Christmas Eve Day. Any special traditions?

      • Su Leslie says:

        We’re not a particularly “Christmassy” family. In the past, we’d have a Christmas Eve dinner with the boy child, but he’s working long hours today. I have a couple of meals to prepare/contribute to tomorrow, so today is a still a cooking day.

      • We always opened our stocking gifts on Christmas Eve after a meal of hors d’oeuvres, and everything else the next day. This year it’s just the two of us for Christmas Eve and I think only my husband has a couple small things in his stocking that he doesn’t even know are there, so we’ll probably watch a Christmas movie and relax. Having Mom and Dad over for lunch Christmas Day, but that’s not a difficult meal to prepare in the morning.

      • Su Leslie says:

        We’ve pretty much abandoned gifts this year and made donations to charities instead.

      • Sounds like a grand idea. Through someone in our neighborhood, we found a family who needs help and gave gift certificates to them. That type of thing is a big part of Christmas, as far as I’m concerned.

      • Su Leslie says:

        That’s lovely.
        We’ve always supported the City Mission, especially at Christmas. This year, we’ve just taken it a bit further. The boy-child has really embraced it; organising a collection at his workplace too.

    Hi Janet – that is a super cool
    Photo for the last day of the travel series
    And wishing you a great holiday

    • Thanks, Yvette. It was a gorgeous little village surrounded by amazing wineries.

      Merry Christmas to you and yours as well. Tomorrow afternoon we’re zooming with the girls, son-in-law, and one sister-in-law (and possibly another one.) Then Christmas Day lunch, my parents will be here for a bit. 🙂 I hope you have time with loved ones in whatever way works out.

      • Prior... says:

        Thanks – keeping things simple on our end – right now having an early Christmas kind of thing with son and his fiancé
        And then delivering Christmas Eve plates to neighbors – but all treats were store bought because the hubs was thinking people might toss homemade stuff this year and I rather agree – anyhow – holiday is off to a pleasant and quiet start 🎄😊
        And hope your zoom times are great
        Not sure if you have the upgraded zoom account but what an awesome company to extend the free accounts for the holidays (and for educators)
        The zoom company seems to have a good vibe and culture

      • Sounds like a good Christmas Eve. I often do plates of cookies but this year I thought I’d wait until after Christmas when things have calmed down. I was considering store bought as well.

        One of our daughter has an upgraded account through her work, so that will work well Nice of them to do the free accounts.

      • Prior... says:

        Yeah and even though they made so much money during the pandemic (assuming they did) it did not mean they had to be generous

  7. This has been a wonderful – and varied – series of photos. You’ve seen so much of the world!

    And what a generous offer. I’m strongly tempted to take you up on it; I’ve been wanting to bring my blog back to life but couldn’t come up with a focus. On the other hand, it’s been so long since I’ve been active here that nearly all the bloggers I used to follow seem to have faded away. I don’t know who I could reasonably invite…

    Maybe I’ll just post a series of travel photos without claiming to be part of this challenge.

    • I’m happy you enjoyed them, Sharon, and it’s good to hear from you. Go for it! You can just do the challenge and link back, but offer it to anyone who wants to participate. Lots of people have just done that. It’s a good way to not have to decide what to post. 😉

  8. And also, Merry Christmas.

    Oooh, looks very Burgundian…

    Best one last! Enjoyed your ten day series 🙂
