Beautiful Photo of Nimes, France

August 13, 2010

IMG_7332

A math homeschool lesson in Roman numerals and Latin  in Nimes at the best preserved Roman temple in the world. We've really enjoyed our third journey this year into Provence and visiting the Camargue, discovering Collioure and loving the kids club opportunities. It's been fun comparing our visits to Gordes and Rousillon in the Luberon to the new places we are finding this year in the south of France.

Nimes was a pleasant surprise and is totally different than Arles even though they are close to each other. The municipal campground is good, shady, cheap ( just 17 euros in high season and much less for a tent) with free wifi with good bus and train access to many places. 

Don't miss the famous Roman coliseum, temple of Diane and other Roman ruins there.

I just love looking at your pictures of France, and also reading your little tips of how you incorporate learning into your travels. I am so excited to visit France one day. I'll definitly use your blog as a resource to plan the trip!

Beautiful composition - and the perfect dress to set off the purple & grey tones of the stone. The use of multiple-intelligences to enhance learning...can't you just feel those chiseled Roman numerals? It is fun to see your photography skills getting finer and finer!

Christina - Thanks so much! Glad that you are enjoying them and I have a lot more coming. We're in the Loire Valley now & have seen so many beautiful and history-rich chateaux. I took the day off and just worked on photos all day as I couldn't download any more until I managed the others. I've had some nearly 1000 photo a day for too long now, so had to store some.

Kidlet caught up on homeschool while I worked on them and it rained this afternoon so made it a perfect "catch up" day. ;)

We love France, so I will have a ton of good family % homeschooling ideas. There really is learning everywhere and everyday & I know you are good at finding such things yourself. ;)
