The header at the top of this page was changed recently. Did you notice? This new picture is from Luxembourg - the old city. My husband and I visited there in September, on our whirlwind Europe trip.
Visiting Luxembourg and meeting family there was a true highlight, and I'll post more about that later. But I wanted to share a few pictures of the trip in general and just a bit of the fun:
St. Paul's Cathedral in London.
Did you know there are over 500 steps to get to the very top?
We climbed every single one.
See the picture below? That teeny, tiny tower at the top of the dome?
That's where we wound up.
As I post more about the trip, you'll begin to notice a theme: climbing to the top of every available monument. No wonder I didn't gain weight!
This is a little window cut into the floor about halfway up to St. Paul's dome. The view is to the cathedral's floor. Pretty cool.
A quick stop for pictures and then... more climbing! Mind you, we had gone straight from the airport (10AM) to the hotel to drop off our luggage and then on to explore London. Five hundred steps on no sleep. But we were still smiling!
Isn't this a cool shot?
View from the top!
Back down on the ground again. I was trying to be the Bird Woman from Mary Poppins here, but the pigeons noticed I didn't have any crumbs to give them and they ignored me. Smart birds.
