Still alive! (In London)

We have been without internet access for some time, sorry everyone. The hostels we were staying in either didn’t have access or the terminals were broken. Even now, this terminal is completely locked down so we can’t update any photos.

We’ve been to quite a few interesting places, including castles in Fussen, Germany and many of the sights in Paris. Tons of photos which I’ll likely only get to once we are back home, or maybe in Varna to just put a few up.

We just recently arrived in London, though we may not stay long. A planned visit with a friend has been cancelled (Kiff – wish you all the best on your recovery) but I’m sure the UK has much to offer in sights and experiences.

We’ll update you when we can, but internet here is expensive (1 £ = 15 minutes). Compared to Varna, it was a Leva for about an hour! (about $0.85 Canadian). what a difference from one end of the continent to the other. I have many more comparisons that I will write about at length when I’m comfy at home in Canada.

For now, the adventure continues 🙂

A few photos before we’re off again

We’re heading out to visit some towns in Germany today, hopefully there will be much to see. We are excited to be taken around by Elena, who knows the area well and can show us interesting things.

Here are some photos from the last few days, just a few that represent a much larger collection that I’ll have to share when we’re back in “Kanada”.

St. Stephen’s Cathedral was pretty cool, it is amazing what thousands of years of catholicism can create. We look forward to seeing more cool buildings in our travels. More pics:

The adventure continues! 🙂

Lunch in Budapest, Dinner in Vienna

The internet terminal in this hostel is completely locked down so I can’t post pictures, and they do crazy things like switch the Z and Y on the keyboard, among other things.

Just letting zou know that we are heading to bed soon in a beautiful hostel in Vienna, overlooking the city. Vienna looks stunning at night, and its definitely a view to remember.

We had a wonderful lunch in Budapest, one of the best lunches I’ve ever had, followed by a very authentic dinner in Vienna, in a small rural restaurant in the middle of a vineyard. I bought a souvenir for you here mom, try and guess what it was 😉

Everything is well with us and hopefully tomorrow at this time we will be in Munich, Germany. Desi and I send our love to everyone, especially to those who post comments 🙂 The adventure continues!

Sorry no photos, I’ll post more when I can 🙂

The Alphabet in Pictures

I got this great idea from Peter, my cousin once removed’s husband (yeah, took me a while to figure out how to say that). He had taken a bunch of photos recently with a letter of the alphabet in mind and posted them on his blog. I loved the idea and thought I’d do the same! Its a great way to get me out there taking pictures, even if its just once in a while. I find myself so busy with school lately that I don’t bother.

So here’s my start, in the usual place with the letter A:

I liked the results of the black and white images of the train tracks that I also took today, and thought I’d carry it on to this tower of apples. Took a good 10 minutes to make ’em stay that way without falling over!

Work in progress!

Just set this darned thing up today, I’ll hopefully start ‘er tomorrow after I’ve customized an appropriate theme. Not sure if anyone would even stumble across it until then, but I need a new title too. The pondering begins!
