🗓: 8 Mar 2020 | ✏️: Travis Gill
It’s been a interesting week full of excitement and a few disappointments…
First the disappointments:
I realized too late that we were supposed to finish the payment on our ferry from France to Morocco. The instructions were sent to me in Italian and I failed to translated it back in November when I ordered the tickets. I checked a week before the departure and it clearly read (in Italian) that full payment was to be made 30 days prior to the planned departure. Bummer, we’re out the deposit we made. But, it turned out to be a blessing because we now have more time to enjoy France and Spain as we ride south to Morocco!
The Corona Virus (COVID-19) has reached Germany and it’s affected the region where we used to live the most. As of a few days ago, over half the German cases were in this area. The schools and some businesses have shut down until the virus can be contained. The German bank, where we had planned to withdrawals and close the account, was also closed for business. Fortunaly, we were able to close the account from another bank in Frankfurt. Now we’ve got some cash for gas – Cha-Ching!!
Now for the excitement:
We are enjoying seeing and experiencing some of the wonderful places in Germany and France! We’ve been to:
- Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints Temple in Frankfurt, Germany
- A unique subway station in Frankfurt
- Notre Dame du Haut near La Côte, France
- Mur Des Canuts and Flower Tree, Lyon, France
- Palau’s Idéal du Facteur in Hauterives, France
- Caves of Trabuc, France
- Utopix, France
We are currently in Millau, France (as of 7 Mar) taking a short break from traveling to catch up with editing photos, videos, and posts. On Monday we will continue towards the countries of Spain and Andorra!
Thank you for reading,
Travis and Chantil Gill
