Sisk Family European Vacation: Paris, Day 2 – Notre Dame...

October 07, 2011
A few weeks ago, I mentioned that it would take me a month to get through all of my photos. I was joking when I said that, but I still have more photos to share from our second day in Paris (beyond today)…and we haven’t even gotten to the Eiffel Tower. As a result, I’m barely picking up my camera to take new photos…but I’m starting to think more and more about what to do beyond my blog postings. Blurb album…postcards…maybe even add a few of my prints to my “Etsy Shop” (in quotations because there is nothing in there yet). If you’ve...

Sisk Family European Vacation: Paris, Day 1 – Versailles Part 2...

September 30, 2011
On Wednesday, I told you that we took the train from Paris to Versailles. I also mentioned that after walking forever and ending up at Marie-Antoinette’s estate, we kept wondering where the palace was…well after walking just a little more, we finally found it.

Each of the three French kings who lived there until the French Revolution added improvements to make...

Sisk Family European Vacation: London, Day 3 – British Museum...

September 23, 2011

If you’ve missed any of my previous vacation posts, click HERE – we left off at The London Eye. Anyways…after grabbing a bite to eat at Wagamama, we took a taxi to The British Museum. Miles was insistent on seeing the Mummy exhibit one more time. I have to admit that it was pretty cool. Unfortunately most of my photos are pretty dark (even with a high ISO setting). I’m kinda curious about what Miles was able to capture with his camera...

Sisk Family European Vacation: Londay, Day 2...

September 16, 2011
Saturday night, we got a good night’s rest…which was important considering we had another day of site seeing ahead of us. Our expensive cab driver told us that Sunday would be a good day to see the “changing of the guard.” He told us to arrive by 10:45 to be sure we could get a good spot. So we did just as we were told. Unfortunately, once we got into place (and waited a good 15-20 minutes), we were told that there would be not changing of the guard today. I initially thought they might have cancelled due to the weather but then realized that there was a major cycling...
