Pictures from Europe


Neuschwanstein Castle

I finally posted the Europe pictures to the Flickr site. It was a little difficult since we took 1,000 photos and vidoes. So, you are seeing the best of the best. Also, when you click on this photo, it brings you to the other pictures. Note you are seeing them in reverse; I did put comments on most of them though.
We are back. It was a lot of fun. 2 1/2 weeks is a great amount of time to visit Europe for the first time. We had all our hotels and transportation booked in advanced; we had to in order to see all these places in the amount of time given.
