... but here are the pictures from my trip to Europe! I wasn't able to log on because my laptop had to be sent out due to a faulty USB connection (And all my pictures were on it) and now I have to send it out again because a few pixels on the monitor aren't working properly Crying or Very sad . Anyhow, here are the pictures of my trip! Let's start off:

Image
Just a picture of the wing of the plane! As you can see, there's no identifying marks to say what type of plane or airline it is!

Image
The next day, we head out from London and all the way towards Paris! I thought that these white cliffs in a small port named Dover were quite picturesque!

Image
That evening, after dinner, and a few glasses of champagne and a snail shell, I, and a few others, head into Paris for a quick stroll.

Image
The next day, however, my friends and I decide to go up the Eiffel Tower. The line for the elevator took forever to wait in, so we stood in the line for the stairs, and before we knew it, we had our tickets, and were on our way up the 668 steps to the second level. We did make a rest stop on the first level though.

Image
When I get to the top, it's a fairly cloudy day in Paris, and you can't really get a good view of what's down there, but I did find this

Image
The view of Paris from the very top of the Eiffel Tower.

Image
I always heard that Paris, and France in general were quite stylish, but I wasn't exactly expecting this Laughing

Later on, we went to the Louvre, and all I have to say was that it was so bloody huge! My friends and I wanted to see the Mona Lisa (As did everyone else), so we go there, and then I had the desire to check out Hamurrabi's (SP?) code, but it was all the way on the other side of the Louvre, and we didn't have enough time. That evening, we went to the Nouvelle Eve cabaret show, and I got a chance to show my moves on stage (It must've been the champagne, again!). After that, we headed out to Beaujolais and stayed at a Chateau there and had a lot of wine! Check out the next post for more pictures...

Image
The village of Beaujolais. We're here looking for "The Top of the World" to have a picnic. I'm lugging all the picnic stuff while the others are looking for where this site is.

Image
The Top of the World. We had lunch here. The view was nice, the bubbly was potent, and the air was crisp and clean! Ah paradise!

Image
The chateau where we stayed at!

Image
Ah Monaco! We got there two days after the Grand Prix weekend, and the rubber was still fresh! I just couldn't find any F1 cars there...

Image
The start/finish line of the Monaco Grand Prix. The coach driver brought the bus onto pole position, revved the engine, and drove the coach into the first corner at 60 km/h. Not exactly F1, but still quite nice!

Image
The Grand Casino! I paid the 10 Euros to go and play inside, and check out the interior design as well! I lost 2.50 Euros in total, while another guy lost about 30. It was still quite nice in there!

Image
I leave with my meager losses for dinner at a nice place on the racetrack nearby and snap this photo of Casino Square! I would have gone to the other side of the square to get the entire place, but the grandstands from the F1 race were still there.

Image
After dinner, a glass of the national drink of Monaco (More champagne), and a hefty bill, I snap this photo as I'm heading back to the coach, which is awaiting at the tunnel. I get to walk the F1 track again to find the bus.

Later that evening, while trying to get out of Monaco and go back to Nice, the coach driver is having a hard time finding the way out because some roads were closed due to the cleanup after the Grand Prix. We finally ended up getting a police escort to take us out of Monaco! I felt special!

Anyhow, I have to go do some chores and other things. I'll post more pictures of Italy, Austria, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Munich, Heidelberg and Amsterdam later on. Thanks for watching!

Good to see you back, SP. You've got some great pics there, especially the one of your picnic site. Very Happy I'm looking forward to seeing the rest. Smile

So did the Germans through their binoculars from across La Manche.

Did you see any blue birds?

Amsterdam was great! I acted like Borat and got a response Laughing

Anyhow, here's the rest of the album. The next day, we went from Nice towards Florence. On the way, we made a stop in Pisa, for the leaning tower.

Image
Isn't it nice?

Image
Arrival in Florence

Image
The Ponte Vecchio. It's very nice and scenic there! According to the tour guide, Giorgio Armani has a house next to the Ponte Vecchio, but you can't see it in this picture.

Image
The cathedral in Florence. Took 200 years to build, and the final designer was Raphael, designer of the Raphael rooms at the Vatican and creator of the duomo. The duomo is behind this building, check the next picture for it...

Image
The duomo

Image
Lunchtime for me! Boy oh boy it was delicious! Margharita pizza with calzone interior! Delisioso! I ate my weight in pizza, pasta, rabbit and gelato while in Italy!

Image
After lunch, we found a department store that had a cafe on the roof, and up we went to take pictures of Florence from above.

Image
We had a group photo over here before dinner, and I took a photo of Florence after that.

Image
The next day, we got to Rome, and this was the most obvious Roman structure...

Image
As I entered the Roman forum, I took this photo of old Rome on the bottom and new Rome above. So much history and ancient ruins, it reminds me of the time I went to Persepolis in Iran.

Image
The Roman emperor's palace! I learned that I could get into the colloseum if I bought my ticket at the emperor's palace because there is no lineup here!

Image
I snap this photo just as we're leaving the forum.

Image
The Trevi fountain. I went for gelato nearby and checked out the local Paul & Shark designer store. Couldn't afford anything there, but at least it was nice.

Image
The Spanish Steps

Image
When I got to the bottom of the Spanish Steps, I took this picture. After this, I walked through the shopping district, ran into the Ferrari store, the pantheon, the statue of Marcus Aurelius, the home of the Italian prime minister, and finally, dinner! A delicious spaghetti awaited me!

The next day (Republic Day), I went over to the Vatican and stood in the 1.5 hour long lineup.

Image
The Sistine Chapel. The place was crowded as ever, and you couldn't take pictures in there, however, I kneeled down on the floor and turned off the flash. The famous painting is on the left side.

Image
After that, we went through the crypts of the old popes, no pictures to be taken there, so I didn't, and we went out into St. Peter's Square. It was huge!

Image
As I'm entering the colloseum, I catch the inner and outer wall.

Image
The cross at the colloseum.

Image
The greater view of the colloseum, and the rebuilding of the arena.

I'm pretty tired right now, and I have to call it a night, so tomorrow, I bring you Venice, Austria, and Munich.

Image
Arrival in Venice and San Marco's Square.

Image
One of the many canals in Venice

Image
More canals!

Image
Stopped at a local attraction here in Venice Laughing. I ended up blowing 18 Euros on a mug, since it was the cheapest thing in the Ferrari store Shocked

Image
I went looking for the Ponte Rialto...

Image
Apparently, I was standing on it!

Image
I then went onto the canals in a gondola! Luckily, there were a bunch of us that got into the gondola, so it wasn't too expensive!

Image
The Grand Canal had some choppy waters, and for a person my height in a gondola, I felt pretty nervous, thinking we would tip over. Luckily, we didn't.

Image
The smaller canals were calmer, and I didn't feel too bad!

Image
Just as the canal ride was ending, I caught sight of this 21st century gondolier Laughing

Image
The next day we went to Austria. Unfortunately, the previous evening, a couple of the guys and I were playing a game of European football, and I ended up injuring my foot (Stretched muscle, nothing serious!). That day, on our way to Hopfgarten, the people went white-water rafting, and I had to sit on the sidelines because of my foot.

Image
The next day, the rest of the people went biking, and my foot hadn't recovered yet, so I went into Hopfgarten and enjoyed the sights, and the lack of skiing! However, I learned that up the road, 2 or 3 km away, there is a little amusement park known as Salvena Land. I walked there from Hopfgarten and played a round of mini golf and went on the toboggan, which was a lot of fun!

Image
Just walking on my way to Salvena Land.

Image
I could not get enough of the view while walking!

Image
Just as I'm getting over the hill to Salvena Land. You can see the little playground just down there.

Image
The next day, we stop at Swarovski Crystal Worlds

Image
My favourite exhibit at Swarovski. This is the Giant's Ring. The crystal in the middle is about 60,000 carats, and the ring was the size of me!

Image
The mound outside. It was beautiful and the museum and shop were all underneath this mound!

Image
The view from Swarovski, and our bus in front...

Image
Entering Munich, and taking in the history and beauty of the city!

Image
The Glockenspiel. There was restoration being done around it, so I just took the actual centrepiece instead of the massive scaffolding around it.

Image
I got on the subway from downtown, and went to the Olympic stadium. I discovered this beauty, and I had to go and check it out Laughing

Image
The BMW Museum!

Image
I caught this beauty in the BMW Museum, because everywhere else was closed that day!

Thanks guys! Glad you guys are enjoying the pictures! Here are a few more of dinner at a Bavarian beerhall, and then I have an early morning, so I'll bring the final ones tomorrow.

Image
Time for dinner and time for a few steins...

Image
... but I don't drink, so it's coke for me! Prost!

Image
Live entertainment at the beerhall

Image
The next day, we make a lunchtime stopover in Vaduz, Liechtenstein. It was lovely, and I paid to get my passport stamped!

Image
The royal palace of Liechtenstein. It's at the top of a hill, quite nice!

Later on, we headed into Switzerland. Those pictures to come tomorrow...

Image
The road to Lucerne.

Image
The view from the coach on the way to Lucerne

Image
Arrived in Lucerne

Image
More of Lucerne...

Image
I bought a swiss army knife for my dad from here...

Image
The winding road to Lauterbrunnen...

Image
The view from my room in the chalet...

Image
The chalet

I was walking to Tremmelbach Falls and I caught the Alps...

Image
The top of the falls...

Image
inside the cave...

Image
The cable car up to Murren in the mountains...

Image
The view from the cable car...

Image
Welcome to Murren...

Image
More Swiss mountains!

Image
Just as I was leaving Murren to the train station which would take me to the cable car that would take me down to the chalet, I took this picture.

Image
The train. It was a one car deal! The conductor looked like Kimi Raikkonen as well!
That night is party night, and I don't document my parties for fear of blackmail!

Image
The next day, we stopped in Heidelberg, Germany, and I got lost from the group! I spent the next hour seeing Heidelberg in a different light!

Image
It was a very picturesque town, and they sold a lot of beersteins.

Image
The next day, we stopped in Edam, Netherlands, and we did this to show, according to the tour guide, that the Dutch, apart from being quite liberal, are normal, everyday people!

Image
As I was biking along the Dijks, I found this. Unfortunately, I didn't have a horse or any armour to chase this!

Image
Next, we stopped off at a clog-maker. This guy made a lot of clogs. I ended up buying the red pair on the right hand side!

Image
The Grasshopper Cafe in Amsterdam was the entrance into the red-light district of Amsterdam. The last photo I would take of this area simply because I didn't want two big burly men coming and taking my camera...

Image
My buddy and I went to the Heineken Experience the next day. This was the only picture of the Heineken brewery that didn't have me in it.

Image
Later on, we go to Anne Frank's house, and I catch this picture of the church nearby.

Image
No pictures of the Anne Frank House, but I caught this one as I'm headed towards Kalverstraat.

Image
This is Dam Square and the Royal Palace in front.

Image
That evening, it was our last dinner, and we took a canal cruise to the restaurant.

Image
The Skinny Bridge!

Image
The next day, on the plane at Schiphol. I had such a great time, and it was over already.

Image
And, just as we were about to make our final descent, I took this picture. We're over Quebec, I think.

Anyhow, thanks for going through these pictures. I hope you enjoyed them. Cheers! Sante! Salute! Prost!
