Our travels - 2006

On these pages I will deal with two of my hobbies and passions.
I like to travel and I like to take pictures and visiting all those places, I see many visiting people doing just the same things, travelling, visiting and taking photographs or movies.

I already have a travel page, listing most of the places my family and I have visited, but on these following pages I will try to list them in a more chronological order.

I have many photographs and I have visited many, many other places that I can't at this stage anyway, categorise.

Come, enjoy our journeys.
