Greek Holiday 2010.
Athenes and the Cyclades
We love Greece and
especially the islands. We have already visited some of the Cyclades islands
and really enjoyed them, taking the ferryboat as we wished and choosing
and negotiating the prices of the accommodation with the people waiting
on the dock at our arrival. We felt a bit like adventurers with, each
time a surprise and often a nice surprise, especially for us travelling
out of season. We wanted to continue our own odyssey in the Cyclades
and feel the freedom of being without a car and without pre-arranged
accommodation. This time, we were maybe two weeks too late, the weather
deteriorated a bit and there were less 'domatias' waiting for us. But
it went pretty well anyway and we have only good memories.
We would like to share them with you, have a good trip!

Théoule-sur-Mer is ideally located on the Esterel
corniche to make wonderfull walks in the Esterel Regional Park, take a
sunbath on beautiful beaches in Agay, Mandelieu or Cannes or, if you
are visiting in February or March, pick a bunch of mimosa in the
Tanneron Massif. But, the sun can be capricious in these early spring
months and you may be lucky enough to see the Mediterranean lashing
it's waves on these beautiful red rocks. In any case, like us, you
won't regret your visit.

Another Forgotten Tramway
The Tramways of West Dauphiny.
Lyon-Monplaisir to Saint
Marcellin and La Côte Saint
André to Le Grand
This tramway, 119 kms long, is the biggest part of the
old network. It started in the Rhône in one of Lyons old tramway
garages, crossed the Isère, the Bièvre plain and the Chambaran to
finish at the foot of the Vercors mountains. The journey took almost 9
hours, if all went well. For the return, it took more than twelve
hours. To make the journey now, it would be rather complicated, but
possible, using the Transisere buses.
For me, the journey was very long, almost a year, with as means of
transport the car, Google Streetview, the multitude of websites and old
postcards. I invite you to follow me in my big adventure by clicking on
the picture of the Pinguely 030T at the TDI station of Saint Georges
d'Espèranche in the Isère.
