    • Of course you did! Though there are less (my bro aims to visit them all next year). It was once a new years resolution, but evidently I failed! I have a vague idea of where things are, but still not 100% known. Looking forward to reading your latest post (I’m busy tracking some work stuff, the nerdiness is so exciting!)

  1. I think somewhere along the way, I read a first-hand survivor’s account from Oradour-sur-Glane – gives me goose-bumps right now thinking about it. Have you seen “Bondi flash mob flip” on YouTube? Makes me smile each and every time…SO Syndney! (happy memories)

    • I read something about Oradour-sur-Glane, so that’s how it’s made it on the list. It’s actually not that easy to get to from the south of France where I last was. I’ll need to youTube that clip, I don’t think I’ve seen it!

  2. I’d love to do a flashmob, especially one where they were singing the Hallelujah Chorus – they’re some of the best ones. The dancing ones are really the best though since I can’t dance I’m not likely to every really attempt one of them. 🙂 There are flashmob discussion boards where people list what they’re organising, I think – I came across something like that once when I was thinking about it but there were none happening near me at the time. It was pretty easy to find by just googling flashmob and the name of the town I was in, though.

    • Thanks for the tip Moonwaves, I hadn’t really thought about the ‘how’ with the flash mob, so I appreciate the heads up! I’ll start googling
