some snapshots








Hello family! I am currently in Paris, just got in today. So far Hoku and I have been to London, Pisa, Florence, Rome, Venice, and Munich (F├╝ssen and Dachau as well). Here are a few photos of what we've been up to. I wish I could put up more...so far I've taken upwards of 700 photos, but I wouldn't want to bore you with THAT many :).

So here is big ben and the Houses of Parliament from the London Eye, Hoku and I at Windsor Castle, eating italian gelato, the Florence Duomo, me at the Boboli Gardens in Florence, the magical Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria, Germany, me and Hoku at the Vatican, me at the Roman Forum, me at the clock tower in Munich with the cool little dudes that come out and dance like in Pinnochio, and finally me and Hoku on the gondola...which cost a whopping 80 EURO!! Such a rip off, but we figured...at least now we can say we did it...and we never have to do it again. It was a nice scenic way to see Venice, though. and our gondola captain did sing to us a little bit, to ease the pain in our pockets. :)

I am seriously so jealous. You look beautiful and like you are having a good time too. Keep it up. I'll get my vicarious thrills from you.

I am sooooooooooooo jealous too! I recognized the forum and the vatican and loved Rome when Dave and I went there in 92. I am so happy that you took this opportunity to see the beautiful world a bit! Have a great time....be safe and keep taking pictures....
Love Aunt Tricia
