Trip Report Auvers-sur-Oise -- Vincent Van Gogh

Jump to last reply

First a confession: I had not been to Auvers-sur-Oise since 1971 when my only reason to go there was because there was a rock festival. It had been raining and everything was muddy so I went straight back to Paris. Good news: the SNCF was on strike that day. Even though the trains were running more or less, they were free of charge. Bad news: I absolutely and totally ignored Vincent Van Gogh, because he was not on my agenda.

So, a mere 42 years later I was suddenly struck with an imperious desire to return and pay tribute to Vincent. (If you read my report, you will see what sort of insignificant event can set you off on such a trek.) It was an enchanting day and I took quite a few pictures.

Here is my report: http://tinyurl.com/q2suxce
