The Route...

It is 4 am  (yes, that is very early in the morning!) and I am once again wide awake sitting behind the computer. At least I do have quite a few hours of sleep behind me now and that makes all the difference...
I thought I'd show the main route we took this last month. It took us from Holland (Muiden, Arnhem, Amersfoort, Utrecht, Zaltbommel and Paterswolde) to Germany (Berlin, Starnberg, Andechs, Garmish-Partenkirchen, Neuschwanstein and Ettal), a little side tour through the Alps in Austria, France (Paris), Belgium (West-Vleteren to an abbey where they brew the world's number 1 beer, but of course I've forgotten the name now...) and back to Holland for another week of small side trips.

Wow, I get just tired reading about it all! [wink]

I'm too tired to make a whole collage at the moment but this picture of the Eiffel Tower is a fun teaser of all the sights we saw whilst in Paris don't you think? We were even there for the last leg of the Tour de France!

Here they come!
I have a great picture of the yellow jersey guy who won the the whole tour
(of course I have forgotton his name as well. I can only blame the jet- lag...),
but I will show you that one later.
We were standing on the Pont de Tolbiac for those of you in the know...
Right, I'm going to attempt another couple of hours of sleeping time now, wish me luck...

PS Darn it! I just checked the link I added to show you our route and it doesn't work! Well, I guess that with the aid of an atlas and my description you can pretty much figure out where we were...



  1. Welcome back! I've missed you but it sounds as though you had a terrific summer vacation. But me too got a little tired of reading about all the places you went to, but while being on the road it isn't that tiring, just great fun!
    Hope you've catched up with some sleep now and will be back with more.

  2. That was quite a Europe-trip! For how long have you been gone?

How wonderful to hear from you!

At the Lake...

To celebrate our last days together, Miss M. and I decided to go on a walk to Rattlesnake Lake, just past North Bend, WA. It was ...
