Milena let me take her to Montreux,
Firenze, and St. Tropez (where we followed in the footsteps of Bardot)
We climbed to the castle walls in Larochette

“See that large white house, across the water?”

This week’s prompts were:

  1. burn it down – for the nails
  2. world traveller
  3. 15 or less
