I've been looking through old photographs and cleaning them with some nifty software. Amongst those rummaged through I've found a few from when I visited Rennes-Le-Chateau a few years back. Those who've played certain games will recognise the name and its significance. Anyway, here's one of the pics with my son in the foreground. It was about 8 years ago at a guess.

The village was not one bit commercialised despite the fact that the book 'Holy Blood, Holy Grail' mentions the story of Berenger Sauniere in some detail. Actually, Mr Bagent, one of the co-authors, was in the Sauniere orchard garden at the time doing some very relaxed and casual book signing.

Anyone recognise this building?

We went in it and up onto the roof terrace where, if you remember, we used the binoculars to view Le SR and surrounds.
In fact we could go in almost everywhere that rang a bell from the game concerning Sauniere and reading the history of the place was an absorbing experience.

It was a wonderful, spine tingling sensation visiting there as GK3 is one of my favourite games.

That sure is a cool looking castle. I would love to go there. The scenery in GK3 was awesome. Also, the scenery in GK2 was great. Lucky you!

I recognise the building Gelert. It must have been an awesome experience for you Gelert. You are so lucky to visit Rennes-Le-Chateau. I'm green with envy Smile

Wow Gelert, thanks for posting ... that must have been a thrill to experience that with a sense of deja vu in a way. One of many reasons why I love gaming, traveling in a virtual way.

I am currently reading the Holy Blood and the Holy Grail. I am VERY interested in such stories. And the pic is a quite beautiful one, well done Gelert. Smile

That's right, Laker. That's why I used to call my PC games that I bought at the local mall a "Vacation In A Box," or a "[Virtual] Package Deal" b/c when my family went on vacation we always got what is called "the Package Deal," and this is why I, too, love gaming.
