French Connection



We had some friends come to visit from France last week, and we took them around to visit Pamplona and some nearby towns. It was like having a mini vacation, because although we didn't leave home we had quite a lot of fun being tourists. The kids stayed home from school on Thursday and Friday in order to be with Magdalena, which they were thrilled about.

We saw Estafeta street (where the bulls run), the Plaza del Castillo (the main square), La Ciudadela (the citadel) as well as some other places around town. On Friday we went to Puente la Reina, which has an incredible Roman bridge, Santa Maria de Eunate, an octagonal church said to be related to the Templars, and Olite, which is famous for it's castle. We had a great time, and now we're looking forward to meeting again in France this summer (There, I've said it, so now we really have to do it).

  1. Querida Teresa:

    Acabamos de descubrir tu blog. Gracias por la canción. Nos hemos divertido mucho con el vídeo "How to wash a cat".

    Nos han encantado las fotos que tomasteis durante nuestra estancia en Pamplona con vosotros. Magdalena no las ha visto aún, porque ya está acostada (son las 22.50 horas), pero se las enseñaremos mañana. Seguro que también le encatarán, ya que son un excelente recuerdo de lo que ella misma calificó, en el viaje de vuelta, como sus "mejores vacaciones".

    Gracias otra vez por vuestra hospitalidad. Nos lo pasamos, de verdad, muy bien. Esperamos veros por aquí este verano.

    Besos a todos y hasta pronto.

    Sophie y Antonio
