Visited some of the former haunts of Ernest Hemingway during his Paris years. One stop was Shakespeare and Company, a bookstore which he used to frequent.

Went to Place des Vosges to see the former home of Victor Hugo, which is now a museum and an art gallery dedicated to his work.
A portion of the gallery was dedicated to Les Miserables. Here I am with a statue of Cosette as a wee lass.

Left me' beloved Emerald Isle to travel with the lasses from William and Mary during their free weekend. We took one of those confounded Ryanair flights that costs ye' next to nothin', and next thing we knew we were in Paris!

Stopped by the ancient burial site at Knowth in the Boyne River Valley before driving back to Galway. Here I am in the vistor center waiting for the shuttle to take us to the actual site.
