Grateful that the amazing Luxembourg Casemates were not destroyed as had been agreed in the 19th Century. Remarkable to explore – even if a bit claustrophobic – and even to view from a distance. The bridge in this picture you can walk underground underneath it to allow access even if the bridge was destroyed.
Grateful for fairly randomly ending up in beautiful Luxembourg city. I know of no where else in Europe that you can have a quiet beer outside with a view of the palace and without a single tourist (or person actually – not even a guard) in sight.
Grateful for peaceful Metz. These people doing Tai Chi and we were the only people in the square this morning.
Grateful for the screams of delight as these kids ran through this fountain.
Grateful to be in Metz, France. We never expected to come to Metz but weren’t able to go where we wanted from Paris after the Olympics so ended up in this sweet little city where we were grateful for the opportunity to use French as practically no one speaks English. Well apart from our waiter at dinner who took this photo for us – he wasn’t originally our waiter but when he found out we spoke English he ran over eager to practice (something we haven’t really seen before in Europe).
Grateful for a wonderful and unforgettable time at the London 2012 Olympics with Simon and my parents. Just can’t believe it is already over.
I was pretty thrilled to have this delicious little morsel …
But Gratitude for the day goes to being at Lord’s Cricket Ground for the Olympic archery. The stands were even ON the hallowed turf.
Grateful we were able to see the dramatic finals of the Women’s Epee at the Olympics.
What a wonderful day. So much to be grateful for. Definitely grateful that we were able to buy tickets (over a year ago) for the Olympic games and tha,t despite the authorised ticket agent being almost completely useless (people lining up for 6 hours and not getting the right tickets), our ticket pick up was executed perfectly by Dad yesterday allowing us to get to the Men’s basketball for the start at 9am.
Grateful we found a shady cave at the Blue Lagoon (after forgetting to bring sunblock with us).
