Floating over Switzerland

This is one of my favorite pictures. Those are my feet on the bottom. I'm paragliding -- floating effortlessly and silently above Interlaken, looking at the Alps in the distance. A beautiful day and a peaceful experience.

Cinque Terre

This is the guy who set us up with our place in Monterosso. He works all summer getting people into his apartments, then takes the rest of year off to travel.

Louvre and Catacombs

The main line was long at the Louvre so I remembered a side entrance that we used a couple years ago that is for tour groups. You can see it behind us in the above picture. We just walked right pretending that we were part of the junior-high tour group ahead of us. After the Louvre we checked out the Catacombs. It's a long walk below Paris, about 5 stories down. This is where they put the bones of about a million people in the late 1700s. I've never seen so many skulls, strangely interesting.
