News from Nijmegen

Yesterday we went to the oldest city in the Netherlands, called Nijmegen.  The weather was nice and we did lots of things.  We saw an amazing maze, where one of my humans nearly got lost:

We strolled along the river Waal:

We met Elvis:

We walked around the old town:

Then we hung out in a lovely park:

...where we met a family of black swans:

What's Up in Wassen

Well, not much to be honest...  It's a small village in Switzerland which has 7 hotels, 4 banks, 2 old people's homes, 1 little supermarket and a church and not much else.  My humans and I are were driving from Italy to Germany and we had to pass through Switzerland.  

Normally my human doesn't like stopping there because everything is too expensive, but we had just passed through a big long tunnel called the St. Gotthart, when the car suddenly started making big noises.  A nice man towed our car to a garage and we all had to stay in a hotel in Wassen.  It was nice, because I was finally out of the car and we could walk around the big mountains there.

We even saw some brown cows that make the brown milk for the famous Swiss chocolate.

Frolicking in Florence

Today my male human and his nephew Jaap went to Florence to pick up my female human who arrived on an aeroplane.
As Jaap had never been to Florence except on some kind of computer game, we went a bit early to walk around the city.  We saw this big cathedral,

Some old bridge with houses on it and squillions of people.

Some naked man called David on a box.

An old man with a pidgeon on his head who could pee from his knee.

And lots of other buildings

But in the end I turned out to be the most photographed attraction, just because I like scratching my back by holding on to my lead with my mouth and letting my human drag me along the pavement.  Don't know what's so special about that...

In the end I was glad to be out of the city and I was even happier to see my human again!
