Last year 2 of my friends and I embarked on an epic journey of ... epic proportions!!
We headed around the world, starting at LA and ending in Bangkok, in 5 weeks. Infact, it was this day last year (the 31st) that we were arriving home!
I actually didn't even notice that until this very moment. Very interesting
Anyway! Over 7,000 photos were taken in this time. Here are a few that
I think are very nice, special to me or just make me smile.
I hope you enjoy them and feel free to comment on any.
Also, some of them you need to click on to see the entire picture, so get clickin'
(I'll be posting them in the order that we visited the cities)
My friend posing, with a very convincing pout, on Hollywood Blvd. Very Hollywood in my opinion.
I took this photo during the Waterworld show at Fox Studios. A mix of very good timing and a lot of luck got this beauty.
This one was taken at Venice Beach and I'm putting it in because it makes my friends and I laugh every time we see it. The man holding the little
boys hand walking on the path designated for "PEDS". Bad taste can be hilarious sometimes
On to New York now. I took this photo from the Empire State Building. A rather different view than you would usually get. Rest assured I was holding
on to my camera VERY tightly while taking this.
My friend and I walking through New York City, looking very much like tourists.
I quite like this photo. I looks very "classic" and old. Plus the statue looks as if it were pasted in, it almost looks like it's popping off the
Another view of the city.
This was taken in the park heading toward the ferry to the Statue of Liberty. (can't remember the name of the park, sorry) This man was just asleep
on the park bench, amongst all the families and tourists going about their business.
We were then off to Montreal, one of the most beautiful places on Earth.
A view of the city from Mount Royal. I've never seen a city incorporate so much greenery into their CBD before. It really is an awesome place.
And he was never seen again ...
At one point on our walk on the wonderful Mount Royal we came across a path where someone had dropped a bag of peanuts, and all these critters were
coming out of the bush to get some. There were chipmunks (so cute!), squirrels and this little guy. It was very, very exciting for 3 Aussies to come
Once all the peanuts were gone this guy ran up to us trying to sniff us for more nuts. Unfortunately, we had none to spare
This is a photo at the church, Saint-Joseph Du Mont Royal. I think this picture is really nice, it was my desktop background for a while. And even
though I'm not religious myself, the church was simply amazing.
After Montreal (which, incase you couldn't tell, we absolutely loved) we headed to Toronto. Unfortunately there weren't any super special photos
taken in Toronto, nor did we enjoy it very much. Sorry to all the Canadians that may be looking!
So we'll head straight to our next stop, London!
First of all I would like to say London is also brilliant, but it holds a special place in my heart because it gave us Kate Nash, who I am one day
going to marry, as I am in love with her. She doesn't know this yet, but one day...
On to the photos!
These 2 photos were just random shots of buildings while we were walking down a street, but I quite like them.
This was in a park out front of the Big Ben. I took a photo of it specifically for ATS
A nice photo of my mate and I near the Big Ben. I look bored as hell but I assure you I'm having a fantastic time
I think this photo is really quite pretty.
As is this one.
This was taken near Hyde Park (where we got wasted and wrestled for a while, God it was fun) unfortunately though I can't remember what this is, so
If any Londoners would be able to help that would be awesome.
Now, on to Paris! Not enough things can be said about Paris. It was our favourite place out of the whole trip and I'm most definitely going to go
back one day.
Dinner at Le Pachyderm in Paris, our favourite haunt for drinks and food. Also where my friend uploaded photos and I played with my food
Our bill after our steak dinner. I actually think this picture is really good, if you ignore the price.
This was a not-so-well timed shot at the Louvre. I really, really like it. We were just having so much fun.
A great photo of a BIG statue ... somewhere in Paris
