Backpacking Across Europe

Inspired by the European travels of Vandra, Kalle made his own trip to France, Germany, Italy, and Switzerland. Here he is outside the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris...

...and the Eiffel Tower, naturellement. Kallezilla looms monstrously in this shot. Run, tourists, run!

On into Germany, a pause at the R÷der Arch in Rothenburg among the flowers.

Then forward into Austria, with a lovely day spent at the Mirabel Garten in Salzburg. The musical number "Do Re Mi" from The Sound of Music was filmed here. Kalle is a Julie Andrews fan - don't tell the other weasels!

Crossing the Alps into Switzerland at the Gro▀glockner Pass. Kalle insists he walked the entire distance. Uphill both ways. In the snow. Chased by rabid wolves and St. Bernards. But we're only buying the bit about the snow.

Finally in Italy (whew!), the travelers take some time to relax on a leisurely gondola ride in Venice. It wasn't nearly long enough, but they did get some good views of the watery city.
