Andorra -- We went in 2009 and spent two night there.  Andorra is a small country in the Pyrenees mountains, between France and Spain.  We were traveling by car from the Toulouse, France, area over to Barcelona, Spain.
 
Andorra is a tax haven, with foreign (dah) banks, no taxes, and lots of gambling. 
 
It is also a great place to ski.  There was still snow in the fields beside our road in June of 2009 when we were there.  The road was carved through the snow which was higher than our car.
 
Andorra is a nice for high dollar shopping also.  The picture here shows a few of the stores.

Antibes is the next city of any size south of Nice, France.  It is located on the French Riviera Coast on the Mediterranean. In 2006 we spent two nights at a B&B there on our way from Milan Italy where we flew in from Sicily (Naples airport) and going to Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, France, 2006 where we were to spend another five nights at a small hotel.

 - Jenny is starting in now on her tenth series of Alphabe thursday.  With 52 weeks in a year and 26 letters in the alphabet she is now in her fifth year.  I am linked to her blog, GO HERE for more. 

 - I am in my fifth series of Alphabe Thusday.  I intend to put on some pictures of my travels when I can find a few.  I have some on my auxiliary hard drive of Antibes but it got too late to get then out.

That's a lot of places you're been. I know how much you and Mrs. Jim love to travel.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

You've done a lot of traveling! Andorra sounds like an interesting place -- no taxes -- wow!
On blog consolidation: I thought about making a whole new blog too, but didn't want to lose my followers! As it is, I can only hope that the ones following my vintage blog will migrate over to the new one!
 
I am amazed at how many places you've been! I need to up my traveling budget a bit so I can see some of these wonderful places...
 
I haven't been to Austria - probably a really neat place. Maybe someday... {:-Deb
 
I've haven't travel to Austria before. Will have to save up too before I am able to consider that destination.
 
I knew you were starting over with A! A+ - have a good weekend.
 
Wow - lucky you and all your wanderings! I look forward to following your Alphabe travels. What next? Belgium, Bulgaria, Budapest, Berlin??? I am glad you had been and enjoyed (I see from your Google+ comment on my post) Australia!! I will check out the comment link as suggested - thank you.

This is awesome Jim!

I can't believe you've travelled so much. I've only been out of the US twice (not counting Mexico or Canada)

I hope Mrs. Jim is on the mend. That sounds like a crazy painful thing. I'm glad she has you to help her along!

Looking forward to seeing what your next letter brings...Budapest perhaps?

Thanks for linking to the letter A.

A+++
 
WOW! Both Dr & Mrs Jim have a very enriching experience around the world together :)
