The Blue Mosque in Istanbul with all the spires and things. Very impressive looking building.

Might be the blue mosque again or perhaps the Isophia thing-a-me-bob? Unfortunately it was all a little while ago now and I have seen an awful lot of buildings since then.

This is inside the Blue Mosque. It was quite impressive looking but unfortunately smelt (very badly) of funky feet - shoes have to be taken off and there is carpet so very stinky.

This was in Bucharest, they had some absolutely beautiful buildings (such as this) mixed in with really ugly soviet block buildings - made for an interesting looking city. I loved Romania!

Vlad the Impaler is who Bram Stoker based his character Dracula. Not really a vampire but a pretty scary man anyways who like to poke sticks into people!

Carpathians are where some people think that vampires originated but obviously they are confused because they started in ireland ... mwahaha that cross is absolutely huge up a really big hill!

Ok this is the castle the movie was based on (Vlad the Impaler was here for a while) but basically it has all been redone in last couple hundred years (recently for these parts I guess) so not scary at all ... bummer!

Not a big wine drinker personally but might have had one or two. It was hilarious (can't beat the W.A wines of course) but we had a good night.

At our last group dinner in Prague. You will notice I am drinking beer (when I don't really drink beer) because it was cheaper than a glass of coke! figure that one out will ya! Had a nice time in Eastern Europe - Romania most of all.
