Vacations

Vancouver pre-2008

Pictures taken in and around Vancouver, British Columbia (Canadialand)

Paris - 2006

We went to Paris in december of 2006, many pictures were shot, but only a few made the cut =)

Vancouver Island - 2008

I've been to Vancouver Island twice now, and while the first time was just Victoria, the second had us staying near Nanoose Bay, and driving up and down the island. These are mostly photogrpahs of our March 2008 outing.

Berlin - 2008

We went to Berlin the end of June/beginning of July in 2008, and what we saw is what you see =)

Alte Nationalgalerie

During our Berlin trip in 2008 we stopped by the Alte Nationalgalerie (the 'old' national gallery... old only because they built a newer one) - www.smb.spk-berlin.de/smb/sammlungen/details.php?lang=en&...

London - 2008

At the end of July we went to visit a friend in London, who would be moving out soon after. There's not a lot of photographs in this one, I know, you'd expect more... but then by this time I'd seen London quite a few times already =/

Vancouver - 2008-2009

I managed to stay over in Vancouver from december 12th till January 11th for some christmas... little did anyone know it would snow unseasonably madly!

Seattle - 2009

We went to down town Seattle for a long weekend in September 2009, and I can't think of a reason to ever go back, unless the city ignores the "US economy" and focusses on rebuilding a city and providing for its inhabitants again.

Parks filled with homeless people, half the stores empty or partially vacated, litter all over the place, hobos on every corner, only a handful of people walking down the streets on a beautiful Saturday afternoon in the middle of down town... Seattle is dead. Don't go there if you want to see the city, there's nothing left to see.

Although you can still go for attractions that let you ignore the city itself.

Seattle Aquarium

We went to see the Seattle Aquarium, which is actually kind of nice (although the mammal section needs a bit of work, there's a lot of plain concrete... functional, but not the most aesthetic material ^_^)

Woodland Park Zoo

During out Seattle trip we went to the Woodland Park Zoo, which was fun.

Artis de Partis also had a good time there!

Victoria - 2010

We got a free two night stay at the Parkside resort in Victoria in February of 2010. These are some of the pictures from that several-day-trip

Summer - 2011

Where we visit Ottawa, Toronto, and the great Canadian Rockies.

Toronto - 2011

part of our summer 2011 holiday destinations

Niagara Falls

The Canadian Rockies

The Canadian Rocky Mountains are, in a word, awesome. And not in the popular sense of the word, but quite literally - they instill a sense of awe, and that's a great thing. I should have visited them years ago!

Montreal - 2012

A conference trip to Montreal, with some photographs documenting what we saw

UK - 2012

Pictures taken in the UK during and after MozFest 2012

Chicago - 2013

Code4Lib 2013 was in Chicago, and I accompanied Arty for a few days of Chicago and saying hi to friends. Also, seeing Chicago while it was very cold.

Galiano Island - 2013

I was invited to spend a few days on Galiano Island with some friends, and it was quite lovely. Worth going back to for a weekend escape!

Northern California - 2014

We took a road trip around Northern California in 2014. Many pictures were taken over not all that many days.

Dublin - 2014

We went to visit friends and family in Europe in the summer of 2014, which included a visit to Dublin, Ireland. There were many cakes.

Wolfheze - 2014

Near Arnhem, made famous for a horribly failed world war 2 offensive, in the province of Gelderland in the Netherlands, lies Wolfheze. My parents live there. It's full of nature. I love it.

Portland - 2014

Mozilla had a "coincidental workweek", meaning everyone had a workweek on the same week, in the same city. That city was Portland, Oregon, and the week was the first in December. Things were seen.

Mayne Island - 2015

We got a chance to take two trips to Mayne Island, one of the Canadian Gulf Islands, just off of Vancouver Island. It's a delightful little island and I'd love to go back a bit more often.

Victoria - 2015

We took a four day trip down to Victoria in 2015. There were lots of neat things to see.
