September 3 - 23, 1998

This is just a sample of the more than
300 photos taken on the trip.

Louis Chiofalo and Larry flew non-stop from
San Francisco to Heathrow Airport in London.
We begin our trip there...

We then took the train north for
a three-day tour of Scotland.
Our first stop is Edinburgh, which
has many beautiful old buildings.

Here we find Larry overlooking the
heather-covered Scottish Highlands.

Loch Ness - Urquhart Castle
This is Urquhart Castle
above Loch Ness, Scotland.
Larry searched and searched . . .
but he didn't see the monster.

Tulloch Castle      Ardoe House
The tour included two night's stays in castles that
also included complete dinners.  The first night
we stayed at Tulloch Castle in Dingwall (left)
and the second night at Ardoe House in Aberdeen.

Galmis Castle
We toured Glamis Castle near Kirriemuir,
Scotland - Home of the Queen Mum

From Scotland we traveled south to York,
England, where we met Ivor Jones, G6URP,
a ham radio friend of Larry's, shown
here with Louis.  No...we didn't ride
the bicycles. We saw the sights on foot.

York Canal
It looks like Amsterdam, but
it's a beautiful canal in York.

Returning from Scotland and Northern England
we met Derek King, G4JKE, another ham radio
friend of Larry's, at Waterloo Station in London.
Here we caught the Eurostar train that goes
though the Chunnel from Great Britain to France.

Eiffel Tower
Arc de Triomphe
Yes...we're in Paris!  It's a beautiful
city full of famous sights, such as the
Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe...

The Louvre

from the movie "Phantom of the Opera".
