The end of the year

The end of the year.

Well, here it is the end of the year.  It is hard to believe I have lived here or a year now.

Photography

Photography.

Recently, I think because of our travels, I have had occasion to think a bit about photography.  Specifically, my photography.  I’ve come to the conclusion that I suck at it.

Crete part 2

Our week in Crete, part 2.

As I said previously, we booked the trip through a company called Itaka.  They are a pretty large company and do many tours from Poland to various places.

The big visit part 4

Weekend in Prague, Czech Republic.

Before Shannon came here to visit, she told me she would really like to visit Prague, Czech Republic.  So, I got on the internet and booked us a flight from Warsaw to Prague on Friday, July 3.  Alicja booked us train tickets from Malbork to Warsaw.
On Thursday, the 2nd, we took a taxi to the train station here and boarded the Pendolino - the new high-speed train.  I have talked about the Pendolino before.  It is a very comfortable and relaxing way to travel here in Poland.  And, of course, it is economical.  Unfortunately, this time it was not so high speed.  They had some kind of computer malfunction that caused us to sit in one place for about half an hour.  But, other than that, it went smoothly.
