    Some of you might remember my asking for recommended places to visit in the US North East: (http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/showthread.php/966491-Seeking-advice-Visiting-the-US-North-East) Well, things turned out differently. We had less time for our trip than originally planned and it became likely that we re-locate to the US-MA anyways sometime next year. So we decided to delay our US-adventure and have a Europe trip instead. Thanks for all your kind recommendations once more. We'll make good use of it - just not right now.

    I promised some pics from our trip! Here you go:

    France, Chamonix: Mer de Glace and Mont Blanc

    France, Chamonix: Aiguille du Midi at night

    Italy, Lago Maggiore: Borromean Islands

    Italy, Lago Maggiore: Stresa

    Italy, Lago di Garda: our balcony

    Italy, Verona: Arena di Verona

    Italy, Verona: Casa di Giulietta (you know Romeo & Juliet)

    Italy, Venice: St. Mark's Basilica

    Italy, Venice: St. Mark's Basilica

    Italy, Venice: Gondola

    Italy, Venice: a beautiful clock somewhere near Rialto Bridge

    Austria, North Tirol: Trees in sunlight

    Austria, North Tirol: Trees in water

    The knife that was with me almost everywhere I went:

    and because there is no Busse folder yet...

    Hope you enjoyed :)

    Very cool. Nice photos. I bet there are a lot more NMSFNO-on-location photos you have not posted in the hope of photospanking a few of us in the picture challenge threads.:cool:

    Love the pics, especially the Chamonix ones which reminded me that I'd be skiing there in 6 weeks :)

    Thanks guys for your kind comments. Italy - especially the northern part - is a place to fall in love with. And the food alone is worth a visit. Our typical restaurant visit started with a soup or salad followed by a plate of pasta, then a second main dish like meat or fish. Finally a dessert and a double espresso. The idea of having a "second main dish" is just lovely. Anywhere eslse I'd feel bad to order two meals per person :) Combine this with the mild climate of northern Italy, a beautiful view over the sea- or countryside and friendly people around you. Aaaah, good memories :)
