Saint-Saturnin is a town of Puy-de-Dome, in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, about fifteen kilometers south of Clermont-Ferrand.
The town has a modest role in French history. Two ladies of the local nobility became queen. Although the town is no longer in the "Les plus beaux villages de France" list, it is well worth a visit.

Saint Pourçain-sur-Sioule is named after Saint Pourcain. When Thierry, the son of Clovis, plundered the Limagne in 531, he met courageous resistance from Pourcain, a monk. A year later, the good man died, after which the Pope canonized him. Today the town is mainly known for its wine production. The white wines are among the best in France.

After the first corona lockdown period, we cycled a tour through Overijssel together with camper friends. In this part, Salland, we crossed the Vecht and the Regge. Our destination was Ommen, but on the way we also passed the protected village view of Vilsteren.

In the Pyrenees is a col known from the Tour de France. When driving the road there are therefore many encouragement texts on the road surface. We drove an alternative route over this Col d'Aspin, which with its 1,489 meters is not very high. But when you arrive at the top you will be treated to a beautiful view of the surroundings.

During this Christmas season, a documentary about Jerusalem seemed appropriate. We let guides take us to the most famous places of the old city and hear the stories of the Al Aqsa Mosque, the Dome of the Rock, the Wailing Wall, the Via Dolerosa and the Sacred Heart Church.

During the summer vacation of 2006 my son Tom visited me during my UN mission. I went with him to Jordan where we visited a very special city. Hidden in the wasteland is a city that was completely carved out of the rocks. Petra was the Roman name for this Nabataean capital. The abandoned city was rediscovered in 1812 and has been a World Heritage Site since 1985.

And because of the upcoming Christmas, we would also like to bring Kribbendorp to the attention.

Last year we presented the first film that brings together two brothers' hobbies: Jo is the creative who builds a new nativity scene with a unique theme every year. Wim, who has video editing as a hobby, ensures that the village comes alive and that his brother can walk around in his own village.

And this year a nativity scene has been added again with the theme 'carnival'. The stable is for Jo's sister-in-law and her husband, who are both enthusiastic members of the carnival association 'de Winkbülle' in the city of Heerlen. The stable contains all the attributes that recall their participation in the parades in recent years, as well as the Blue Shut with the Smiling Donkey, the heraldic animal of the association.
