My World was in a few places for a few weeks

The Netherlands
March, 2011
Ten days aboard the Viking Pride, with Viking River Cruises.

April, 2011
The south of France
We rented a condo at Malibu Village (right) in Canet-en-Roussillon. For day-trips we took a bus to Perpignan train station.
From our bus stop (above), we could see Mount Canigou in the Pyrenees.

In the very south of France, we visited Collioure, where the artist Matisse found inspiration.
