First Flieger Trikes

We were hiking around the Formula One race course in Monaco, and after walking past the Fairmont Hairpin Bend, we see a Starbucks just to the east of Boulevard du Larvotto.

As we looked down from the Starbucks patio, you could see a number of very high-end cars driving onto the Roundabout du Portier.
First Flieger to Grindelwald Hike
After we rode the First Flieger zipline and came down part of the mountain on the trikes, we then decided to hike the rest of the way back to Grindelwald via the trail. We could have gotten back onto the Gondola, but it was a beautiful day and the scenery we were seeing from the trail was great.

The headwaters of the Catawba River are just east of Asheville, where the river tumbles through a rolling forest, cascading in a series of waterfalls in a scenic stretch of the Pisgah National Forest.

Seville Spain Horse Carraige Ride
Taken in Seville while on a Trans-Atlantic Cruise on the Norwegian Epic. Our ship had docked in Cadiz, we took a train north to Seville so we could explore the city and the Royal Palace of Seville (Alcázar of Seville). The park (Jardines de Murillo) that is immediately in front of the Palace is extensive and as there were a number of horse drawn carraiges offering rides around the Palace, we decided to try it.
Bergen Norway Fish Market
This area reminded us of Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco ! The Fish Market is located in the heart of the city between the fjords and Bergen's 7 mountains. It has existed since the 1200s and has been a meeting place for merchants and fishermen - and now serves Bergen visitors as well.
Driving into Grindelwald from Interlaken
This is a video from our drive up the hill from Interlaken to Grindelwald. This is about a 25 minute drive (20 kilometers in distance) and the route steadily rises in altitude as you approach Grindelwald. We departed Lake Halstatt Austria early that day, so we were glad to finally be close to our destination.
Praia do Norte Surf
While driving from Northern Portugal to Lisbon, we stopped by Praia do Norte just to see the famous beach - which due
to its giant white breaking waves is famed for its surfing conditions. Nazaré's waves were listed on the Guinness Book
of Records for the biggest waves ever surfed.
This was a relatively calm day, but if you turn up your volume, you will be able to hear the sound as the surf comes ashore.
