Ira Returns From 22 Loverly Days in Europe

Hi all,
My Lady Wife and I have returned from our visit to Alsace, The Bodensee, the Bernese Oberland, the Italian Lake District, Provence, and of course, Paris.

Three weeks of fun-filled excitement in lakes and forests, death-defying treks over mountain passes through fog and gloom, foods and wines and other such stuff as dreams are made on;

We returned to cold, damp and rainy weather - and a yard full of tree branches, beaten down flowers and .unmown grass.

Reality has a habit of doing that.

More to come later.

Ira - Use the little triangle and ask if they can change it to the other countries.

>I do not know why it is tagged "UK".

You wrote:
>cold, damp and rainy weather

The message board detects this statement and puts it under "UK". ;-)

Logos, I love it!

Ira, can't wait for the trip report to start. It's a chilly, rainy day in Charlotte....perfect day to lose myself in a good trip report. And as I am currently pregnant with twins I won't be going anywhere for a long time so I might as well live vicariously through others.

Oh, we can live with the UK tag.

Meanwhile, after weeks of nice weather, it turned cool, damp and rainy in Paris today, too.

Welcome back. I hope you had as great a time as we did in France. We came home to branches and tons of acorns. We haven't seen this many acorns here in Wisconsin in 17 years. I hope that doesn't mean a bad winter.

Looking forward to your trip review.
