Wanna Buy a Camera

So I wanna buy a new camera, a digital SLR. I’m looking at the Canon Rebel XTi because it seems like a good starter camera. I’ve read a lot of good reviews on the camera and everyone I’ve spoken to about it have really good things to say. The one major downside I’ve heard about the camera is that the kit lens that comes with it isn’t that great, so I’m probably going to skip that lens and get the 17-85mm f/4-5.

Paris, the City of Lights

Well, we’ve been in Paris for a few days now, but the Internet access here isn’t free, so I had to wait to buy some time before I could post again. We’ve seen a few of the sights, but mostly we’ve just been wandering around the streets and taking in the atmosphere. On our first day here, we found a small panini shop, got ourselves a couple of paninis and ate them in one of Paris' oldest squares.

More Sight Seeing, Still Good Weather!

Well, we’re coming up to our final day here in London. We’ve had fantastic weather for our entire stay, hopefully it’ll continue for the rest of our journey.We’ve seen quite a bit more of the city including Trafalgar Square, Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park. The sites are simply amazing, filled with so much history it’s difficult to take it all in. Yesterday we saw the Tower of London, the Tower Bridge and St.

Cheerio from Across the Pond

So we arrived a couple of days ago. The flight wasn’t that great, we were delayed at the passport control office for over an hour. Luckily, Scott, my cousin’s friend who had said he would be able to drive us out to my aunt and uncle’s, stuck around and we were able to meet up with him once we got out of the airport. Visiting with the family was short, but great.
