Of course I won´t bother you with all my 900 photos (that´s the digital age...), so I selected some. The photo above was taken as you can obviously see at Stonehenge. It was chilly and windy, but it was a very special moment for the young guy doing the peace sign. He´s been reading about it for quite a while and visiting the site was one of his highlights of the trip.

A happy traveler!

Bonds grow stronger during trips. :-)

I love lavenders!

From the London Eye.

Those fish give me the creeps. ;-)

The busy Thames.

Notre Dame de Paris

Chagall´s ceiling at the Ópera.

 Where´s Wally?

Maybe Wally is in there ;-)

My favorite: Claude Monet´s house and gardens at Giverny, in Normandy.
