Vinny and Kevin ventured to the suburbs of Paris for an sculpting experience with artist Alexander Haulet. Alex is currently traning with the masters and originally trained at the Louvre. I can't believe he was able to take 2 people that never thought about sculpting and guided us to creating something we never thought we could do.

Alex is going to fire our sculptures after preparing them and when they are finished, he will ship them to us. Watch for an announcement when you can drop by the store and see what we created. I highly encourage anyone traveling to Paris to try this experiance!

When we got back into the city and it was off to the cafe and French pizza.

Meet our train greeter at the Lyon, Paris. Her name is Pepper. This was where we took the train into Paris. Cute but she likes to stare at my smartphone camera, it may be love!

A small glimpse of the light show.

Here is the view of the Eiffel Tower as the sun sets over Paris. A perfect way to end the night. There is a light show on the top of each hour all night long.

We all made it to the Eiffel Tower. Just waiting on the first light show of the evening. If my battery holds up, we will share pictures.

The Paris crew toasting with a Bottle Marselan from Vinny and Kevin's apartment. Sante from Paris!

We have arrived in Paris and made our way to our apartment. Right outside our door and directly across from our windows is the gates of Paris. Even in Paris we are staying OTP by one block. We are going to try to virtual drop in on wine tasting Friday night since last Saturday did not work due to the internet connection. We will see if it works. Perhaps from the Moulin Rouge or the Eiffel Tower as a back drop.

We are in a cafe for lunch waiting out the rain. More updates coming.

Las Halles Market Tour in Lyon, France.

We spent the afternoon traveling down the Rhone to spend the evening in Vienne, France. To keep us entertained during this trip, first we had another great lunch followed by a Ice Cream Party. Also we had a wine game and tasting hosted by a local sommelier focusing on the Cotes du Rhone region.

Tommorow, we tour around Vienna and then we sail to Lyon, France.

We went for a steam engine train ride today that took us way up into the area that you just can't travel any other way. Starting in Tournon, France we boarded for a 30 minute ride to the top with beautiful views. At the top we stopped as the engine was manually turn around on a giant turntable by one person. The engine repositioned then took us back down the tarain.

Originally, this train was the only way to get commerce into Tournon. Now it serves tourists an advendure.

Truffle Hunting in Grignan, France. We left from Viviers by bus to Grignan. After arriving, our hosts and owners explained the process of hunting for truffles which their family has been doing since 1850.

Then the stars of this experiance came out to meet us. Two beautiful female labs, a four year old expert truffle hunter and a one year old puppy in training. It takes four years of training before the dogs are concidered an expert truffle hunter. We all watched as they found several truffles in the ground.

After the demonstration, the group was welcomed inside with a glass of wine waiting for all of us in attendance. We were able to try the black winter truffles and truffle oil. Then we were all back on the bus to take us to Tournon where the reunited with the ship which was moved while we were out exploring.

Vinny and Kevin made it to Barcelona. This is one of our new friends who owns a fantastic and delicious restaurant that we stumbled upon. The owner saluted me from the table next to us while Vinny went out for a smoke. He was sitting with friends drink a few bottles of some very nice cava.

He then sent his staff over with a completely glass of wine that I was drinking. I found a micro wine from Spain that was ridiculously awesome. So good, I keep the bottle. He came over and had a great conversation. Of course we closed the place down, but before we left as they were cleaning up, he offered Vinny and I a homemade nightcap, which was similar to a high alcoholic lemon cello.

We then moved onto the next place for another nightcap and dessert. Barcelona has a great nightlife and the people are great.

We are at a small town in Southern France right now waiting for our connecting train to get us to our ship. The ship has a more reliable internet connection, so you will be seeing more posts soon.

Love to all our friends from Europe.
