Rochester Daisy & Marley Running The girls have really been able to open up their legs up here, since they have so much room to play.  In Texas, they can only run around in a circle, which gets boring pretty quick. 5-22-2006
Rochester Jessica Riding The Bull  
Jessica and crew went out on the town for her Bachelorette party.  One bar they visited had a mechanical bull.  Here you can see Jessica ride (and fall off) the bull like a true cowgirl.  The video was taken inside a bar so the lighting is pretty low.
Rome Spanish Steps  
In front of the Spanish Steps on our way to dinner.  This is the home of the Spanish Embassy to the Vatican.  It's also a very popular place to hang out and people watch as you can see.
Rome Sistine Chapel

Sistine Chapel

We returned to the Sistine Chapel on this visit and I  secretly snapped a few videos of the interior.  Although your not supposed to take photos inside (not that people were listening anyways), it was too beautiful of a sight not to take some video.  For those non-Catholics, this is also were new popes are elected.
Pompeii Pompeii Gardens

Pompeii Body

Pompeii Coliseum

Pompeii Ruins

Pompeii was amazing.  Seeing the very intact ruins of a Volcano that erupted nearly 2000 years ago was truly unique.  The Pompeii body video is a plaster cast of a person who was excavated.  His skull and teeth are original.  The coliseum was once completed covered with lava, as was the entire city. 
Rome Inside Saint Peters  
Inside of the Basilica di San Pietro.  The most impressive Christian church in the entire world.  We went to mass at Saint Peter's and received communion there.
Rome Catacombs


The catacombs of San Calixtus were very cool.  We also got to walk along the Appian Way on our journey to the catacombs.  The Appian way is the worlds oldest "superhighway".  It was built by the Romans.  The catacombs were ancient burial grounds for Christian's who died in Roman approximately 2000 years ago.
Rome Piazza Navona at Night

Trevi Fountain at Night

A nighttime clip of Piazza Navona staring Sarah & one of Bernini's fountains as well as a clip of the crowded Trevi Fountain.
Pisa "Walking" The Dog  
On our way back to the bus from Pisa, we ran into this old man "walking" his dog.  As you can see, the dog was on a cart and he was pushing it around.  The old man loved the attention, although I'm not sure the dog loved it.
Pisa Leaning Tower of Pisa  
The infamous Leaning Tower of Pisa in the city of Pisa, duh!  This square gets packed with people and people trying to sell you tourist crap.

Florence Florence Police  
Watch as the Florence Police (it was the same everywhere in Italy, I only got it on film in Florence) walk buy one of the annoying street vendors, who is forced to pick up his fake paintings and then once the police have passed him he puts it right back down.  The same went for fake purses, sunglasses and watches.

Aerial View of Venice Lagoon

Bells going off atop the Campanile

 Views of Venice from  the Campanile di San Marco inside Piazza San Marco in Venice.  Shortly after the first two videos were taken the bells starting going off right above our heads, as you can tell from the video it was pretty loud, but definitely a good time.  The Aerial views give you a feel for what the city is like. 5-8-2006
Venice Frank Feeding The Pigeons

Sarah Feeding The Pigeons

Videos of just one of the many many times we fed the pigeons in Piazza San Marco.  For 1, this is definitely the best spent money in all of Europe in my opinion.
Amsterdam Dirk feeding the Blue Herons  
Dirk is a 80 something year old guy who we ran into in Amsterdam, he's lived there his whole life and the locals say he knew the Frank family (of Anne Frank lore).  He comes out every night to feed the Heron's and the pigeons.  The city has even installed a little sign noting that rare birds are in the vicinity.  When he leaves, after the feeding, all the birds follow him back down the road, truly amazing.
Windsor Guards at Windsor Castle The guards came parading down the road outside of Windsor Castle which naturally drew a big crowd. 4-30-2006
