Saturday Snapshot

I'm back! For those of you that just started following my blog, I have been enjoying the sights of Amsterdam, Berlin, Prague, and Vienna for the last 14 days. Phew! There is so much to see and so much history to adsorb. I found this wonderful linky from Run! Miss Nelson's Got the Camera where all you have to do is share some of your favorite pictures or videos from the week. Since my week was spent in Europe, you get the pain pleasure of seeing some of the pictures from my trip.

We started the trip off in Amsterdam. The canals are beautiful. I would highly suggest a canal boat ride if you ever get the chance to go.

I got to ring these 400 year old bells.

Canal ride

Anne Frank's house. HUGE line so we didn't go in.
Next we headed to Berlin. Outside of Berlin being heavily bombed during World War II, I didn't really know much about Berlin. I was pleasantly surprised. The entire city has changed so much over the last 30 years. Every where you looked there where a ton of cranes and construction going on. I'm sure 10 years from now, Berlin will look even more different.

Brandenburg Gate 

Checkpoint Charlie

These are called ampelmannchen. They are on all of the East Berlin traffic lights.

Berlin Wall
We went into Prague next. In the last 20 years or so Prague has really been growing and gaining more tourism but it has still kept it's old world feel.

Best beer of the trip!
We finished our trip in Vienna. Before coming to Vienna, I had envisioned the scenes from the movie Sound of Music. Sadly we were not in the right part of the mountains but it was still beautiful.

I have a ton of other pictures but I will spare you from having to scroll through all of them.
