  1. I ended up shipping a pair of characters from different books that I've written. I know that wasn't the idea, but as soon as I saw the topic it popped into my head and I couldn't resist! http://thezoe-trope.blogspot.com/2012/01/roadtrip-wednesday.html

  17. This walking tour was a great way to see st etienne and learn about the incredible history. It was a high educational trip but the information was given in a easy to understand way whilst walking around one of the most beautiful cities. What could be better. Our guide was really nice and also answered a whole range of other questions about st etienne http://www.privatetoursinistanbul.com This was a great thing to do on our first day in st etienne and gave us a wonderful insight into everything, we also saw a lot of sights in a short space of time which would be good for people short in time. Some tips they gave were invaluable such as getting into Le Louvre without the lines... The answer you will have to find out on the tour! Have an Enjoy :)
