Welcome to the picture section of this website. I have been quite lucky to have the opportunity of living abroad for quite a long period of my life, and to travel for work and pleasure to a lot of different places. This is a selection of the pictures, divided by year, of all my travels, day trips, excursions.
In the unlikely event of you really likeing one of these shots, should you want them for your desktop or something, let me know and I can provide you the with full resolution versions.
