5: Sweet | Home | Home
6: good eats | Such heavy meals, but luckily we didn't eat like this every day. Despite this, we really enjoyed these first dishes on our trip.
7: We found the raw fish sandwiches in Cochem, Germany, but we weren't brave enough to try them. We had the pizza in Verona -- the best in Italy! So different from American pizza!
8: Bavaria | Hitler's Eagle Nest
9: Castle Neuschwanstein
10: Romantik Hotel
11: The Romantik Hotel in Villach, Austria had an awesome breakfast spread. We were brave enough to try almost everything!
12: Venice, Italy was an incredible city to visit. After stepping off the water taxi, we were surrounded by wall-to-wall people and found the alleyways to be neat getaway areas. Laundry hung throughout the streets and out of windows. We were amazed from every direction.
13: city of water
14: Verona, | Italy | The Arena since 30 AD
15: breathtaking views inside the church of St. Anastasia
17: highlight of the trip

21: We had hoped to stay several days in Cinque Terre, Italy, but the heat changed our minds and it turned into an enjoyable day trip. The view was beautiful with clear blue waters and buildings packed to the edge. We wish we had our swimsuits!
22: wine country
23: Along the Wine Road
24: We went so many places, yet it seems like we saw so little. Hope it doesn't take another 25 years to go back and see more!
