Travel companions

The idea for a picnic at Wicklow mountains was submitted by James Murphy from Newfoundland.

The idea for visiting Taiwan was submitted by Augustin. Obviously, I got the idea for visiting Blois from him too.

Those are my two confirmed travel companions so far. Anybody who supports global emocracy is free to join.


Right across the square from the Maison de la Magie Robert-Houdin is a historically significant royal castle, with four sides dating from four different centuries. Worth visiting.
