I just heard my photo of the Eiffel Tower received a Bronze Award in the Epson International Pano Awards.

I just got back from a trip to Europe where I traveled by train through France, Switzerland, Austria, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, and Turkey, following the route of the Orient Express. Perhaps my favourite stop in Eastern Europe was Miklosvar, the Romanian village that time appears to have forgotten. People here live much as they did hundreds of years ago, drawing water from the wells, riding horse and carts, tending to their animals (cows, goats, sheep, chickens…). It’s no wonder big budget Hollywood epics such as Cold Mountain choose to film in this region; the countryside is like something out of a Jane Austen novel, like Western Europe might have looked before the industrial revolution.
