amazing

we began our trip of a life time in London, We rode a double decker bus and went all over to sight see. It was so beautiful.
Our next stop was Brussels, Belguim. We went to the Grand Place where it is absolutely gorgeous, so many old buildings built in the 1600's. Wow. We ate belgium waffles, belguim ice cream and belguim chocolate.
Our next stop was to meet up with my sister in law, brother in law and nephew in Paris. Another beautiful place...so many wonderful places to see. We didn't get to see as much as I would like, because while on the rail, my husband was pickpocketed! The scam is this: a group of young girls around 13 and a Mom...they are with you in the subway, when your group goes to get on they try to get 'on' too and crowd and jostle as the rail is about to close the door, As the door starts to sound the warning they pickpocket you and hop off right as the door closes! We then spent the afternoon cancelling credit cards and reporting it to the police. :( We had to head to our next destination so we will take the bullet train back up to Paris to do more sight seeing later this week.
We are now resting in a Villa in Chateauneuf du Pape, in central France. An old quaint village...next week we will finish our trip with a cruise to Italy. :) More pictures to come...
