Yeah, I thought it would be a good idea to take a picture from the hillside parking lot that overlooks the main straight coming up to the exit of the 'Ring. Picture turned out nice, but the mud puddle on the way to it kinda dirtied things up a bit.

That's a great shot. Well worth getting it dirty.

More updates with Prague on page 1. Vienna picks coming as soon as I finish processing them. By the way Bratislava is every bit as ghetto as the stereotypes and movies make it out to be. It's nothing but concrete block project housing. Didn't stay long enough to find out if a nickle would help open a new hotel or a $1.67 would get bottle service at a club with new suits.

Sorry for the massive delay in updates. The hectic schedule of the alpine portion of my trip coupled with a lack of internet in Amsterdam and work once I got back have not helped any. I'm almost done processing the pictures and should have a full update for the rest of the trip later today. In the mean time here's a few pics to keep things rolling.

I finally have updates (page 1) on the whole trip except for my last stop in Amsterdam. It takes a lot of time to go through thousands of pictures to find the best ones! Amsterdam will be up tomorrow.

Awesome! Awesome Awesome!

No worries about the wait. Your pics and great descriptions are worth it! So glad I subscribed and can't wait until I have to by a new car in a couple years so I can do this. At the conclusion you're going to have to tell us what you enjoyed most and what you would suggest or change for someone repeating your trip. Thanks for posting and looking forward to the rest of the pics.

Finally, after a week of sorting and processing photos, I have my full trip account finished. That had to be one of the best vacations I have ever had. Thankfully the only interference from that Icelandic volcano was with some of the views of the scenery, and not with travel delays. I kinda lucked out on that front. Had a friend that got stuck for a few days on his way to his wedding because of that volcano. He got stuck in Amsterdam, and still made the wedding, so it kinda worked out.

Yeah, but they were mostly wait staff at the restaurant.

Nikon D50 with a little help from Photoshop. Nothing too aggressive, just post processing of the raw images. I really want a D90 and a wide angle lens for better landscape shots, saving my pennies for those.

Great shots! Photomerge in PS is a lifesaver.

Looks like an awesome trip / experience. Hope to be able to do it myself one day.

Yeah, photomerge can work some wonders. Now I just need a decent wide angle lens.
