Paris, France in Pictures

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:!i=3040580911&k=V8KQw38

London, UK In Pictures

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.

See the link below for all the pictures, and scroll down for some selected shots:!i=3040579811&k=9RQnVMT

The Asian Detour In Pictures

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:!i=3040577877&k=QBRkHLr

The UAE In Pictures

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.!i=2431218058&k=nWBp6G9

The Maldives In Pictures

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.!i=2429762420&k=K7zwhfv
