Bordeaux France


Bordeaux France is a two hour direct flight from Algiers. It's a great long weekend getaway. I made a 4-day weekend using vacation time so we could get a little break in the middle of December. We got our usual museum infusion. There was a big Christmas Market that was fun to check out along with the holiday lights of the city.

Santorini Greece


We arrived in Santorini Greece by plane, but it looks like lots of people come by cruise ship. This was a short 3 day and 2 night mini vacation after needing to be in Athens for a work conference. It's been on my list of places to go for many decades.

Jardin d'Essais Algiers

Here's pictures of the lovely Jardin d'Essais, which is easily added as a favorite place. This is a grand park for strolling along the tree lined paths. We ate at a restaurant with outdoor seating on this somewhat warm winter day. It's a great place to enjoy a beautiful day in Algiers!
