The NoeHill website began as place to document historic sites in our hometown of San Francisco. Frequent road trips in Northern California and the Sierra Nevada led us to expand our coverage to all of California. Then, when we discovered the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and the Santa Fe Opera and began driving through more of the western United States, we once again expanded our coverage to include as much of the Golden West as we can visit.

The Travel Logs in The World section of NoeHill briefly document a few of our excursions in the wider world.

  The Loire and Paris

In 1994, Bob and Al visit France for the first time. Bob keeps a journal of their experiences in the Loire Valley and Paris. Al builds his first web pages to publish the journal. This was long, long ago when our ISP was Mindspring, and our DSL provider was Northpoint Communications, both companies long gone.

But we will always have Paris.

 
Two Sailing Ships
We compare two sailing ships, Star Clipper and Wind Surf.
 
Some Places in Provence
NoeHill spends a late winter and early spring visiting perched villages in Provence.

On 15 March 2006, we paid $120.45 to stay in a 100€ room.
