I know, now it seems like now I am a world traveler. Not really. I had never left the North American continent until last year. This summer’s 20 day journey included a cruise around the British Isles, followed by a few days in London and Paris. As usual I travel with camera in hand, and what follows are the interesting and beautiful photos from the trip. If you are thinking, Keith I didn’t know about your journey last year, are there amazing photos from that trip I can view? Yes, you are in luck, not only are the wonderful photos to view, but I have blog post that links all photos and blogs posts. Here it is. 

This sunset photo taken from our room on just our 2nd day at sea turned out to be the best sunset of the trip. The composition of the photo was improved even more when an member of the crew stood in the window on the bridge to view the sunset.

This was inside a church in the town of Guernsey which was our first stop on the cruise.

It certainly looks like a great spot to drink fine wines, real ales, and have a smoke while in Guernsey.

How could one pass by a place called the cock and bull and not take a photo?

There’s green, and then there’s really green, and then there’s how green The Swan Inn is.

Each day at noon at the Guernsey castle they fire off one of the canons. These two gentlemen in red are marching toward the canon to fire it off.

The sign on the bow of the boat reads, “For Sale – Genuine Enquiries – Please Phone”. Since I didn’t have a genuine Enquiry, I didn’t call to see how much they were asking.

In the United States this elegant looking building would be some historical monument that had been preserved to save our history. In the UK where there are literally thousands of old buildings like this, it’s a music store.
