Myrtle Beach Real Estate by Mirela

My R-Rated Trip of Europe...

"Mom, you really need a boyfriend!" said my son, after seeing the pictures I had taken on our trip through Europe.  Whatever did he mean?   What's a lonely American girl to do on her European vacation, but take pictures of the places and people of those lovely countries...  Here are some good examples of my observations captured on film:

 This fine building houses the headquarters for the Water Company in Barcelona, Spain...













This was the changing of the guard at Schonbrunne Palace, in Vienna, Austria.   It was an "exciting" event!




These anatomically correct  piggies, were in the store window of a fine porcelain shop in Venice, Italy.








                        Geneva, Switzerland, with it's famous fountain...






This was taken in Madrid.  Notice the couple behind me on the bench...  making out in plain view in the middle of the day.  I had turned my back to them, so I wouldn't see them...







         The "Museu de Erotica", or The Erotic Museum in Las Rablas, Barcelona, Spain.











Ah...  the dreaded roundabout in Perpignan, France.  Maybe this had something to do with it all...  Yeah, that's it!

Mirela, the title got me to click and the pictures did not disappoint.  Thanks for a chuckle this morning.

It is not you; it is those Europeans. Yes, I had a good life too. Thanks.

It is very different there!  Even in Turkey... when I was in high school it was the routine to welcome the new person to the country, we'd all go out for pizza.  Ordering dessert a "Tunali Surprise" for the new person - they had no clue and got served two scoops of ice cream and a 1/2 piece of fruit.  It was HORRIBLE when it was my turn.  You have no clue until it comes out and placed right in front of you.

Mirela, great post. We took my youngest to Europe when she was twelve and I had to explain to her ahead of time she was going to see a LOT of things she hadn't before. I have a photo of a mural from Pompeii I couldn't possibly post here. Very explicit!

Mirela - Interesting post, the pictures are things we don't normally see here, they are more explicit then we are. Hope you had a good time.

Mirela- I love the water company building! As far as the Royal Lipizzaner Horses in Vienna, when I saw them one was in the same condition - perhaps it is something in their food??????

If it is something they put in the food, I'm sure a lot of women here would like to know about it...  I can just envision the wife saying:  "honey, come get your snack, it's special..."

Me too... when I first set my eyes on that building...

The little anatomically correct piggies in Venice were adorable.

Hello Mirela,

It was just 2 years ago that I was in Europe with my husband and 10 year old daughter. I covered her eyes quite often as I recall....It's those europeans!

Did you tour the "Museu de Erotica"?

I am going to check out the TravelingRainers group. When I grow up I want to be Samantha Brown!

Lori:  I was in Barcelona again this summer and I passed right by it again, but did not have the time to tour it (maybe I was too chicken?)

Will "Baby Samantha Brown" join The TravelingRainers Group and start posting some fabulous travel blogs?  I hope so!  With AR growing daily, who knows, you might give HER a run for her money..
