Walking around the charming village of Vernon, France I found the remains of a medieval castle wall and tower. Surrounded by gardens now, it was a pretty sight.
The old town center is near the Seine River, where it’s been since William the Conqueror marched through. It was an easy walk from the boat, which is one of the things I like best about Viking River cruises. (No, I didn’t get paid to say that.) Tour guides will lead you to points of interest, but I chose to wander around on my own.
Getting lost is almost impossible; just head down hill until you reach the river and there’s the boat.
Thought for the Day: Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves.
Henry David Thoreau
