The Keys in Florida

Hi I'm over in the US for a visit and just got to an computer now to post some photos.
I just loved these signs down in Key West. They are so adorable.
With their writing and mostly for the great pictures I just love the colors and the simplicity.

I just feel for this old motorcycle and how it stood so well with the wall in the great green shades.
Isn't this tree amazing and so wonderful because of its stems and in one place it even had this stem going in a circle of its own.

So graceful.










The harbor was so great with fantastic boats and just the sun how it feel over the perfectly still waterfront.



The great sunset party down in Key West where they give small performances all over the town square. Some pretty cool ones. And naturally I needed some prof of one of my favorite things. The Sunset.





Bradley and I waiting for dinner. And I got this great jambalaya.

Italy


We had a lovely trip to Italy. Both of us had talked about it for a long time and finally we got to do it. Here's some of all what we got to see.

Some of the great mountains that we saw. It was such a beautiful country and great food served.

B in front of the great mountains, we where up on a sheep farm that had this wonderful lunch with all kinds of cheese and sausages and other meats and really good bread and pasta.


The view on the road to our hotel in the village of Santa Maria.




















The village of Montelpiano. It was such a beautiful place and a real feeling of genuine Italian hospitality. The groom had rots in the village and so they got to meet their relatives.
It's up on a cliff that has this amazing view over a great area and the town square was placed so that you could see far and away over the mountains. A great place for a wedding.







This is the town square of Montelpiano and Les with her husband Rich.





B looking over the edge in Montelpiano. In the background some of the amazing view.


After the weeding we had a lovely dinner at the hotel in Santa Maria. and the day after that we got time on our own going to Pescara.









A great espresso after a more than wonderful lunch. We had only seafood of all kinds. After wards we went out on the beach and what a stunning place.
Me on the beach in Pescara and it was almost surreal how striking blue it was.

A happy B after a weekend with lots of great memories and wanting for more of Italy. And we will return soon hopefully.

Traveling to Czech Republic

Last summer -07 (B and I) went to Czech Republic and loved every bit of it. Traveling both to Praha but also to Pardubice were we stayed and to Brno.
I would recommend it.

Lots of great places to visit but also good food and nice people.

The picture to the right is of Plzen a town where most of the Czech beer is made. This is the view from our hotel window. Pretty cool.



This is the town square of Plzen and it had this beautiful church in the middle of it. And the whole square was surrounded with old

beautiful houses many of them also had writing on the front with wonderful pictures illustrating a craft.



And of we went into the sunset...











...after a day and a half in Plzen. And thought of going to Praha but ended up in Pardubice instead. And it got to be our home away for tow and a half weeks. And I'd love to come back some day.

Pardubice town square a great city that have most things that Praha offers but a more quiet character. And great communications to travel everywhere.











Praha this is the famous astronomic watch.



A cool store with all kinds of armors. B went nuts in the store and became a five year old boy again. With twinkling eyes and everything.


A happy boy outside the store.

















The famous Charles Bridge in Praha (Prauge).
