My boyfriend is a car guy, both by nature and profession. So stopping at le Mans 24 Hour Museum during our trip to France seemed like the right thing to do.
The obvious draw for most visitors to Musée Marmottan Monet is to see paintings by the master himself. But what was surprising to me was the wide range of paintings by other well-known artists.
Check out my full post about this impressive monument, showcasing contributions made by French citizens throughout history.
I’ve accumulated a large (admittedly random) collection of photos of my feet taken during my travels. I thought it might be fun to occasionally share them here on MOTM and link each photo to a more in-depth post I’ve previously published.
Because the old Gold Rush town of Barkerville was so remote, its residents struggled to keep correspondence up with loved ones back home. Initially letters were sent with friends traveling between Victoria and nearby Quesnel. It wasn’t very reliable, and I imagine it didn’t help with feelings of homesickness.
Not unlike modern times, the buildings and properties of Barkerville were regularly bought and sold taking on different forms. The history of a single building can often make you dizzy with its twists and turns.
