Log/Pic 71 Benelux & Paris
So this summer it was off to Europe. We started in Amsterdam. This is a shot of the famous seven bridges from my nighttime canal tour.
The real reason for my visit was the windmills.
Above is Zaanse Schans-the windmill village. Below is a clog factory that we visited after the cheese factory.
This is Volendam-the fishing village.
Below is how we traveled most of the summer. This was in Belgium where we went to Liege-Guillemins and Namur. Here we did little more than eat a Belgium waffle.
Luxembourg turned out to be a great place. The capitol, Luxembourg, had ruins and castles, and this palace.
We went to the quaint town of Vianden...
...to see Cinderella's Castle
Next it was off to Paris, France.
Here in the Louvre we saw the Mona Lisa,
the Eiffel Tower.
arch de triumph, the obilisque, Joan of Arc, the gardens, champs Elysee, and below, Notra Dam.
