Hey. sorry it took me so long to get these up, but I got busy (and lazy
), and I knew how long this post was going to take to make.
Anyway, as some of you know, I went to Europe this spring, and I had a great time. I visited Germany, Austria, Italy, and Switzerland (in that order), and I want to go back.
And here are the pics (sorry they're so big...I don't know how to resize them. If a mod or admin wants to help me out there I'd be very thankful
Oh, and sorry they're not in any particular order...that would have taken way more time than I have.
Heidelberg Germany viewed from an old castle.
One of the famous Venice canals.
The guy at Murano (the art glass company in Venice) that no girl could take her eyes off of :P (sheesh
those high school girls were hysterical in Italy
Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany. It was built by a 19th century gay prince, and you can tell. :P What a beautiful place though...it was like Queer Eye For the Straight Guy had been there.
View of the rooftops of Rothenburg, Germany from the town hall tower...and you should have seen the number of stairs we had to climb to get there!
View from the top of one of the Swiss Alps.
View off of the wall of Rothenburg (old medieval walled town...very cool)
Venice as we left on the boat that night (I have to go back there someday...it'* the most beautiful city I've ever seen).
More Venice by sunset.
Castle ruin in Heidelberg.
View from a boat in Switzerland on the way to the mountains.
Lucerne, Switzerland (by far the best city I've ever been too...like a combination of Boston and the lakes region of NH...and the people are so nice. I want to move there)
Just like in Euro Trip...lol...they were dead on
Our whole group on top of the world.
Nueschwanstien Castle (but reversed...I haven't had the time to flip it in Photoshop yet
The ceiling of St. Mark'* Bascillica in Venice. That place was just dripping in gold.
The side of a building in Venice (my only attempt at an artsy photo for the trip. :P )
More Venice canals (from the gondola ride...so much fun)
Courtyard in Rothenburg
The more sobering side of the trip...the creamatorium at Dachua...we saw the gas chambers too, but thankfully they were never used as Dachua was a concentration camp, not a death camp.
Back to the pretty stuff...the famous bridge in Lucerne
The supposed actual balcony of Romeo and Juliet (the little pieces of paper below it are things that people have stuck to the wall with names of their lovers on them (some of the things were not so romantic...for instance, old gum with names written on it, and my fave, the woman'* pad
The famous Glockenspeil in Munich...still plays after hundreds of years...so cool
And just for you drinkers out there, one of the largest wine barrels in the world (there is one larger in the next room, but no way to take a picture...but just to give you an idea, there'* a dance floor on top of it
Well, that pretty much sums up my trip.
Sorry it took so long.
