DOMPARADOX - ITALY AUTUMN 2006

 

"Domparadox" is one of the Paradoxplace group of websites and website names created by Adrian Fletcher, aka "Dom Paradox" and "Adriano".  It was the road site for Team Paradox's Autumn 2006 visits to Rome, Chianti, Puglia, Piemonte, Tuscany and Burgundy.  The photos and commentary from the original site have been transferred to Paradoxplace.  For memory lane here are some of the pics with lots of links to the Paradoxplace pages where you can see more.

Paradoxplace itself is a fascinating site which uses hundreds of the best photos you will find on the web to bring to life people, art, palaces, cathedrals, abbeys and travels in medieval Italy, France, Spain, Portugal and Britain, accompanied by some of the best food you can eat whilst discovering these.
