Where in the world am I? (28 April 14) - with answer

Here is the first photo - where in the world am I this week?

Answer: Chateau de Pierrefonds.

Originally built in the 1600's but it then fell into ruins. It was substantially restored in the 1800's by Napoleon III.

To get there by public transport you should take the train to Compiengne and either bike or walk through the Forest of Compiengne, or take a taxi to Pierrefonds. It is 15km from Compiengne to Pierrefonds and I will put up a trip report with photos of our trip.

Next photo on Monday (Paris time)

Something new.......

Its been a while since I did much with the blog/twitter account/Facebook page that i created to go along with the website.

Late last year I found full time employment which has limited the time I can spend on updating the website, however we are still travelling around France and around Europe on the weekends and on other holidays. As a result, I have a large number of photographs and corresponding stories of places both on and off the beaten track. I have been wondering what to do with these photos and stories and how I can integrate them into the things i started on

Inspired by something a friend of mine started on her Facebook page, I have decided to start a "where in the world am I?" game.

On Monday, and each Monday, I am going to put up one of my photos from our travels around Europe (and beyond) with the question "where in the world am I?". Then on the Friday I will put up the answer to where the photo was taken and how you can get there (normally using public transport).

I will put the photo up on this blog, and also on my Facebook page (search for us as Beyond Paris), so if you prefer to play on Facebook, feel free to like the page to stay up to date. I will also send it out via Twitter (@beyond_paris).
