    As some of you know, travel is one of my passions. A while ago an ASF member urged me to post some photos of my recent backpacking adventure to Eastern Europe. I said that I would and then procrastinated. :D

    Anyway, I finally resized some photos and have decided to post a few. I thought this thread would be a good opportunity for anyone who wanted to share some of their own travel photos. I love looking at other people's travel photos, especially if it is a place I haven't been to yet. So if you would like to, feel free to share some of your travel photos here. It doesn't matter whether it's travel within Australia or travel overseas... then whenever anyone needs a holiday all we have to do is click on this thread! :)

    If you have difficulty resizing or reducing the file size of your photos then feel free to email them to me at joeblow@aussiestockforums.com and I will do it for you.

    Now since I had set the maximum attachments per post to three I decided to simply choose three interesting ones from my recent trip.

    (1) Budapest, Hungary from Gellert Hill
    (2) Tyn Church (1365), Prague, Czech Republic
    (3) Bran Castle (1378), Bran, Romania (Dracula is said to have lived here)

    Great photos Sam. I dug deep into my hard drive to find some old ones from previous trips that I scanned from prints.

    (1) Amsterdam, The Netherlands
    (2) Bruges, Belgium
    (3) Camels on the move near Cairo, Egypt.

    Keep 'em coming!

    Well, Joe, finally you got round to starting this thread. My thanks to all of you who have posted these wonderful photos. I felt transported when viewing them - I so appreciate being able to see these, some of which far surpass the usual photos contained within travel brochures. Please keep them coming.

    In appreciation,

    Julia
