We ‘traveled back in time’ to the age of knights, monks and public torture at Mont Saint-Michel, which was featured recently in a Smithsonian Magazine article.

It’s always fun to see what was carried in my suitcase on trips. Here you’ll find some travel books, a delicious bottle of confiture de lait (a specialty of Normandy and Brittany, this French milk jam is made of rich milk and sugar, cooked slowly and gently until it has attained a golden colour and delicate caramel flavour), chocolates, cookies and a non fiction book about inbred mountain dwellers in Nova Scotia, the Goler clan. You can also see my Canon cameras. I had my EOS 20D SLR and the two video cams there were both standard def MiniDV tape loading recorders which captured the videos embedded above.
