Viking Sky – Viking Ocean Voyage

Tags

If you have traveled on a cruise ship you know that they all had a similar style to them, until Viking added cruise ships to their fleet.  If IKEA was to build a cruise ship it would be a Viking.  We traveled from Bergin, Norway (Sept. 10th 2017) to Montreal, Canada (Sept. 23rd 2017) on the Viking Sky.

8/08/17-Wet Lands and Bull Farm Visit

After visiting Aries in the morning and before the medieval Aigues-Mortes in the afternoon we drove through the Camargue wet lands and were able to view pink flamingos and people riding a special breed of local horses.  For lunch we stopped at a bull farm.  In France the bulls are used for ring fighting.   In ring fighting there are a group of matadors, and the goal is to pluck a ribbon from between the bull’s horns. The bulls aren’t killed. Different ribbons have different point values. The matador with the most points of the season is the champion.  The bull giving up the least number of points in the season is the champion bull.

France – Point du Gard Aqueduct

8/07/17-Point du Gard Aqueduct

After spending the morning exploring Avignon we traveled to visit the Point du Gard Aqueduct.  We first visited the Museum before walking out to the site. Once at the site our guide showed us the Point du Gard Aqueduct image on the five euro note. Seems that the only mistake made by the Roman’s was using lead to make their pipes.
