Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Pont d'Avignon in France

Above the Pont d’Avignon in France

Every person who took any French in school remembers two songs: Frère Jacques and Sur le Pont d’Avignon are in grained in every former French pupil’s head. The Pont d’Avignon is actually called the Pont Saint-Bénezet and is found in Avignon, France in Provence. The area is more than a French school boy chorus and a great place for adventure. As far as the song goes – for those who have forgotten, here is the unforgettable chorus:

Sur le pont d’Avignon
L’on y danse, l’on y danse
Sur le pont d’Avignon
L’on y danse tous en rond

Find the lyrics to the full song here.

Stay tuned,
