The last of the pictures

These are the last of the pictures. I'm sure that I have you all totally bored by now but I love looking at pictures so I hope that the rest of you are the same. The Colosseum at night.
Assisi. An almost 2 hour train ride from Rome.

St. Francis of Assisi church.

Taken from the top of St. Peter's Basicilia in Rome

St. Peter's Square early Sunday morning. I carried the camera duing our run so I could get some early morning shots before too many people got around.

Trevi Fountain during our run. Trevi fountain is always packed full of people unless it's 6:00 in the morning like it is in this picture.

The Spanish Steps. Again it's usually packed with people but there wasn't another soul in sight that morning.

This was taken in the town of Amalfi when we took a tour of the Amalfi Coast. It was beautiful with all the towns on the sides of the cliff and the roads were so narrow and winding.

This was taken our board our ship. It had 2 big waterslides which we all tried. Lots of fun, especially since there we very few children on board. We had the slides all to ourselves!

Dubrovnik, Croatia. It was beautiful there with all the red rooftops. The city is surrounded by a big wall which you can walk on top of.

Sunset in Dubrovnik. It was amazing.

I can't believe you ran while on vacation. I am so proud of you for being so die hard and making it such a part of your life. I think I would make an excuse that I'm on vacation and can't run,haha. Love all your pictures, great idea of seeing everything early.

Hello Sabine,
We are both at the same point in the wait with 17 months down. I hope that we both hear something very soon. Have you heard of any referrals lately in Belgium? There have not been many at all here in the past several months. I'm hoping that that will soon change.
