As with many things on the trip, taking pictures with James in tow was different. That said, I still took a bunch of pictures. Check out all the pictures at the following link or the selection below:
We spent 5 nights in Paris, and I took a lot of pictures. Probably the most in one city. I edited them down to a manageable number, though I still ended up with twice as much edited pictures as I did for London. Either way, I think we got some good ones. See the link/selected pictures below:
With the nasty weather in London, I didn’t bring my big camera out with us everyday. Also, with the ridiculously expensive public transportation (combined with the weather), I didn’t spend any nights out exploring with my tripod (cf. Paris). So everything we took in London was just hand held, walking around. It still gives you a pretty good idea of what we saw.

Alyce came up with the name “The Asian Detour” to describe…well, our detour to Asia on the way to Europe. I like it, so I’m sticking with it. Even though we weren’t in any one place for long, we still managed to get some shots along the way. Here is the link to the pictures below, as well as some selected shots in this post:
There is a lot of money in the UAE…and they like to show it off. As a result everything is very extravagant and over the top there. We only had one day in Abu Dhabi and one day in Dubai (which included 4 hours of traveling to/from there), but we still got a decent feel for the area – especially Abu Dhabi where my friend Tommy, who works as a drilling engineer, was able to show us around.
We’re back home and still getting used to it, but it is great to get back to some normalcy. We do still have a bunch of stuff to post – including getting to the rest of my wrap ups and some other posts…I’ll probably try to do one on some of the tricks we used to book all the stuff. So keep checking back every now and then if you are interested in any of that.
In the Maldives, we stayed at the Park Hyatt (Hadahaa Island). It was incredible. Check out the pictures to get an idea of what it was like.
We didn’t take a ton of pictures in Bali, but we got a decent bit. There were a lot of temples and inland type scenery. Plus, we dove so there are some scuba pictures. Here is the link:
Here are the pictures from the Great Ocean Road and South Australia portion of the trip. I put a bunch in this post – probably too many. So, this post may be slow to load. The link to all the pictures in full size is below:
