It's about time

Well, we've been home over a week so I guess it's time I posted a few pictures. It's hard to choose just a few when you have more than a few hundred but here's a couple from each place we visited.

Here's a rundown of where we were. Hopefully I can get the pictures in the right order. We flew into Paris and spent 3 days there before heading south to Perigueux. After 3 days there we made a pit stop in Nice for a day before heading to the Cinque Terre on the Italian Riviera. We spent 3 days in the village of Vernazza before heading to Rome. 3 days later we were on our way again to Venice. After 2 days in Venice we took the night train back to Paris for what was supposed to be one last day. That day turned into 2 after missing our flight home. So on departure day 2 we actually headed home and made it back to Portland after a good 24 hours of airports and airplanes.

We had a blast and loved nearly every minute :o)

The Notre Dame cathedral at night

Scott outside of the Louvre

The Eiffel tower (this was actually on the last day of our trip.)

One night we took a boat ride down the Sienne

Why I love my husband. He makes a great pack mule. :o)
All I had to carry was a small backpack and handbag.

This little village is built right into the cliff.

I just erased the other pictures of Venice and lack the patience to re add them. Maybe another time. For now, that's a quick synopsis.
