Ah, Europe. Before the recent financial collapse, the kind of story book setting that I once read in, well, story books.
Spring to spring for the three years beginning in 2008 and ending in 2011 I had the good fortune to have been seconded to Brussels by my employer. Not the first time I had lived overseas – I had short periods previously living in Bermuda and in Scotland – but at three full years it was my longest opportunity of ex-pat living.
And live I did. Europe by its very proximity of nations offers a chance to experience a wide variety of languages, and cultures within a few mere hours. A one week driving tour, for example, took me into five different countries speaking four primary languages and through some of the oldest and charming cities in central Europe. More on those in later posts.
The purpose of this present post is to introduce a book of photography I published near the end of that three year European experience. Called “Adventures in Europe,” the book has 46 pages of photos I took at venues across the continent. Dedicated to my parents, it was my way of sharing my experiences with them and my extended family back home.
