Four Postcards: Three Designed to Inspire Awe.

From the wonders of nine hundred year old man-made cathedrals…

Reims Cathedral, built between 1211 and 1345

… to the perhaps two hundred and fifty million year old natural wonder which is the Gorges du Tarn (better photos later, I hope. My phone-camera was over-awed) …

The Gorges du Tarn, several million years in the making.

… to the twenty year old wonder which is the Millau Viaduct.

Millau Viaduct, the tallest bridge in the world, with a structural height of 336.4 metres.

The featured photo shows a spot of shock and awe from a weathered statue stacked outside Reims Cathedral and awaiting restoration.

I'm retired and living in North Yorkshire, where I walk as often as I can, write, volunteer, and travel as often as I can.

  1. All very very cool. I think those bridges are just beautiful, and marvelously interesting. But I like the others a whole lot too. I need to get out more…trapped here at home I am stuck being awed by the puppy.

  2. A journey to remember! I’ve just come here from a post on the completely breathtaking monastery at Batalha. I’m worn out with being awed! Enjoy the rest of your trip. Mine starts today and I’m full of butterflies.

  3. Lots of firsts for us this time which made the trip especially worthwhile. I’m quite glad M persuaded me against the train this time (actually, it was just too expensive).

  4. Reims Cathedral is stunning, but whizzing through Reims perhaps you weren’t able to visit the superb Basilica of Saint-Remi. Still you had a more exciting journey with gorges and viaducts etc, than just flying over it all.
