Bingen am Rhein, Germany
I've been to Bingen about four times now, and it just seems better each time. Rudesheim am Rhein is just across the river, and it is a nice place to visit as well. I hope you enjoy these pictures. There are several for your viewing pleasure!
Poland and Eastern Germany
These pictures are from Elim Mission - Poland and the Eastern German cities of Bautzen and Gorlitz. This was a great trip for us! We had such a fabulous time! While visiting Elim Christian Center, we attended what I would classify as the best worship service we've attended since I've been in Europe. And, it was in Polish! I couldn't understand a word! But, I sure felt the Spirit of the Almighty in a powerful way! I look forward to going back someday.
Liege, Belgium
Sarah lived in Liege for some time. It's a pretty cool city to visit. It has a lot of history, as most cities in Europe do! The city hall building makes for a nice little tour. And, they have some nice eateries as well. Be sure to look at the pita sandwich I demolished!

Drielandenpunt and Westkappelle, the Netherlands (92 photos). Drielandenpunt means three lands point. It's where the Netherlands, Germany, and Belgium all meet in one place. Westkappelle is a Dutch town that overlooks the North Sea. In WWII, this town was heavily bombed by the Brits in hopes of driving the Germans away.

Battle of the Bulge Tour (Picasaweb)

These photos are from a tour I went on while taking a History class about the Battle of the Ardennes (official US Army name of the battle). The album features pictures of actual American foxholes that were just to the side of one of the four German Rollenbahns (four different routes taken by four different German commanders in route to the objective - Antwerp, Belgium). Also, there are pictures of Bastogne, Belgium, where an exceptional act of bravery took place by the US Army's 101st Airborne Division, Combat Command B of 10th Armored, and the 463d Field Artillery Battalion, who were deployed to Bastogne. There is a beautiful monument at Bastogne that has all the United States etched in stone. Also, there is a museum that's built in the shape of a star. Another great thing about Bastogne is its wonderful Belgian chocolates!
