France and Scotland, Part 2

Went out to France and Scotland for a few days each

Saw the Mona Lisa, definitely cool to see the real thing

Checked out the inside of Notre Dame: the interior is beautiful

The alter of Notre Dame

A shot taken just across the river from Notre Dame

Having a glass of wine in Montmarte, watching the painters work their magic

The weather was incredible during the entire stay in France

Chillin just outside of Concorde Square

Sacre Couer off in the distance

Standing next to a real Monet is amazing!......

Had to get a pic of the signature -> authentic

Yes - that is a real, authentic Van Gogh - bad ass.

Also got to see a real Renoir, all seen at the Musée d'Orsay

And of course, I had to make it back out to Scotland

Shot of the castle where Monty Python was filmed, just at the end of the river

The weather was so great in Scotland....beautiful the entire time

In front of the British Commando Memorial

Got to sail down the loch ness, where two F-18 fighters suddently flew down the river overhead; needless to say, I got pretty excited when I saw that

Just past the trees is the Speyside River. The Speyside River is where the MacAllan, Glen Livet, and Glen Fiddich distilleries all sit

The Firth of Fourth bridge in Edinburgh

Standing out from of the Edinburgh Castle

The Scotch just seems to taste even better in Scotland: took a Scotch tasting tour

Shot from the side of the castle, getting close to sunset

Still can't believe how nice the weather was
