The Treasures of Europe

We're just back from a very memorable tour of Europe, and I could write a thousand things about it. But for now I will let the pictures do the talking.

Visiting the musical and intricate clockwork of the Black Forest Cuckoo clock factory

Taking a boat ride through the thunderous cascade and spray of the Rhine Falls 

Sitting on the shores of the serene Lucerne lake with the picture perfect alpine backdrop.

Spending a relaxing evening in Engleberg, nestled high up in the angelic peaks.

The vertiginous climb to the top of Mount Titlis, the panoramic views the breathtaking heights! And then the throwing, dodging, falling and generally having fun in the snow.

Taking a  gondola ride through the narrow canals, walking over a never ending series of bridges and falling in love with the most romantic of cities, Venice!

Traveling back in time to the gladiatorial arena, walking down the imperial way at the centre of the ancient Roman empire, and  visiting the humbling and awe inspiring Basilica.

Being enchanted by the architecture, the culture and the home of Michaelangelo, the city of Florence.

Amazed at the miraculous piazza with the ever leaning tower of Pisa

The Jet d'Eau at the "Peace Capital" of the world, the city of Geneva.

From the panoramic views upon the Eiffel Tower, 
to the cruise along the river. 
The Sights viewed from the Seine, 
while enjoying the light rain. 
Along the resplendent Champ d'Elysees, 
to the magnificent Arc de Triumphe. 
Being swept of your feet by the city of love, the city of lights, Paris!

And not to forget the iconic national monument of Belgium
