Finally, some pictures

I have finally figured out why I was unable to upload pictures and have fixed the problem. I have added just a few from Barcelona, Nice, Monte Carlo, and from the Cinque Terre in Italy. I'll be sure to add some more later.

La Sagrada Familia. This is a church in Barcelona which is being built on donations alone. The construction started in 1882 and it won't be completed until 2020 or later. The church was amazing because of all of the details.

We also visited Parc Guell in Barcelona. It was designed by Antonio Gaudi and it reminds me of a mix of Whoville in the Grinch Stole Christmas and Bedrock in the Flintstones.

Nice was very nice! We just walked along the beach, which was quite rocky, and did a little hike up to a look out.

Monte Carlo. There were tons of yatchs and we just took a quick look around and visited the Casino (stayed outside) and the Palace where Grace Kelly lived.

This picture was taken somewhere in Tuscany as we took the bus to the beginning of the Cinque Terre walk. We didn't get to do the hike in between the villages. Instead we took a boat between villages as we didn't have enough time to hike the entire distance.

These pictures are from the various villages along the Cinque Terre.

Monte Carlo casino.
