Following a lone traveller ...

... along a muddy path,
they heard noises in the distance,
clashing swords and warrior cries.
In the middle of nowhere, in the heart of the Alps,
they had stumbled across a jousting tournament!
Competing for the hand of the fair maiden.
Later there was food ...
jam bubbled on the stove ...
There were giant Vultures and this amazing Condor ...
And some burly Scots ...
It was an unepected afternoon's entertainment!

It was definitely worth following that stranger, that looks such fun. The kilts must have looked very strange in that location! Sarah x

That looks like a really fun event! Jousting is serious business. And I liked the jam bubbling - it's not what I would have imagined on the stove at a feast like this, but, hey, why not? Looks yummy!!

What a wonderful treat. My step-father used to call that sort of thing "following your nose".
