The last update to this website was completed in Prague in the Czech Republic where we spent a few days catching up with our friends, Jim and Debbie Messemer, who were in Prague on their honeymoon.

Prior to traveling to Prague, we spent two spectacular weeks hiking in the Swiss Alps, specifically in the Berner Oberland and Zermatt areas. Check out some of our incredible pictures in the Alps, especially Day 4 and Day 10.

Before embarking on our hiking adventure in Switzerland, we spent 6 weeks touring Italy.  While in Italy, we were blessed to see over 15 of our friends and family.

From Prague we headed north through Germany and Copenhagen to Norway.  From Norway we headed south and east to England, Scotland, France, Spain and Portugal.  Pictures from our last months in Europe will be posted shortly.
