Christkindlesmarkt photos

To celebrate this holiday season, here are a few photos I recently took of the Christmas Market (Christkindlesmarkt) in Nürnberg.

You can see the above in higher res on my Flickr stream (as well as all sorts of other photos), or see lots more Christmas Market pictures on my public Facebook gallery.

Have a Merry Christmas, and a happy New Years, Hanukkah, etc.!

A few recent travel photos

As always, I have lots more photos I need to post (and some on Flickr that I haven’t pointed out here), but here are a few photographs to share with you of my travels around the world in the past couple months.

streetcar in Liberec

I visited Jakub in Liberec, CZ

walking in Wrocław

…then went to Wroclaw for LGM

After that, I went to Savannah to visit family,and rode 1/2-way across the USA in a packed van.  (This is a shot from our hotel room in Little Rock, at Sunrise.)

We ended up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, for my cousin’s wedding, and a family reunion. (This picture is from Tulsa, but obviously not the wedding.)

June snow

purple mountains

After getting back to Nürnberg, I went to Munich for the weekend.

Nat, Stephanie, James, and I went hiking around the foothills of the Alps on a Saturday.

…Then we visited Regensburg on Sunday.

Now I’m back in Nürnberg, taking this weekend off from travel (and don’t really have a photo to illustrate this last point).

Hope you enjoyed this little blog post! (You can see more of my photos on Flickr.)

Photos from Prague

Two weekends ago, I went on a trip to Prague to visit some friends who were also visiting the city. Last weekend, I hopped over to Paris to visit a friend there, and to see the city for the first time.

I don’t have many of the pictures posted, but I did manage to upload four to Flickr today during lunchtime. These are from Prague. I’ll upload more soon, including a few from Paris too. (:

A few things I miss…

I’ve been in Germany for two weeks now, and I miss a few things already…

morning flight

First of all, my family and friends back home (of course!). It was great to spend quite a bit of time with my family, and I was able to visit a few friends before the big move. (Hopefully they’ll come to visit in the months ahead…)

Outside of that, I wasn’t able to bring my books, and I’m missing the Wii a little bit too (I’ll need an NTSC-compatible TV)… and… a power adapter for my 750 GB IOmega hard drive… the one that all of my photos are on! (What a thing to forget! Oops!)

Now you know why my flickr page has not been updated recently… (Well, that, and I ought to go out and shoot a few pics.)

So, I apologize for not posting any of my pictures on flickr recently… (:

With that, I’ll end this post with a few of my favorite recently uploaded photos.
