Banff Canadian Nat'l Park

It's Wednesday. I'm in Krakow, but haven't had a chance to upload photos to my computer yet. This week's travel photo comes from our camping trip to Banff Nat'l Park in Alberta, CA, from August 2008. Pictured is Lake Louise, named after Princess Louise Caroline Alberta, fourth daughter of Queen Victoria. Is it not special?

Travel Photo Iceland

Legitimate excuse for the lateness: somehow Blogger wasn't working on my Icelandic internet yesterday. BUT - arrived in Scotland, now I can post yesterday's update.

A double feature on this week's travel photo wednesday -- two photos from our first day in Reykjavik, September first, 2008.

On the north road

Yesterday morning we arrived in Reykjavik, Iceland, and we've been having a grand old time. Things are a little pricey here, but thanks to we're making do and meeting great people, too.

Yesterday we saw a good deal of the city, including a lot of great public sculpture as in the photo above. Today we took a ferry out to a nearby island called Videy, where we rode bikes on rocky paths, and looked at remains of an old fishing village.

Tomorrow we're hoping to rent a car and see some of the countryside -- waterfalls, geysers, etcetera. I'll keep you posted.
