Travel Photo Thursday: “Shooting” Europe

Travel Photo Thursday: “Shooting” Europe

In you are headed to Hungary, be aware that in mid-March that country imposed a law requiring photographers (presumably that includes tourists) from taking anyone’s photo, even in public, without permission.

You shouldn’t face that problem elsewhere in Europe, but that doesn’t mean you can or should poke your lens in someone else’s face or place.

Join Me on My “European Holiday”!

Join Me on My “European Holiday”!

Clock-Tower-at-Westminster.jpgThe clock is ticking down and two days from now, on Friday, August 1st, many European workers are going to be off the job.

That’s not because they are going on strike. They’ll be going on what the British call “holiday.”

Americans, of course, call that break from work “vacation.” And while many of us will indeed be “on vacation” in August, unlike our counterparts in at least some Continental countries, we’re not likely to take off the entire month.

From time to time I complain to my fellow citizens of the-good-old-U-S-of-A that if the Italians had landed at Plymouth Rock instead of those dour, Puritan-work-ethic-obsessed Pilgrims, we, too, would be enjoying one-third of the summer at the beach, in the mountains, or fishing from a dock on a bay or lake somewhere, far from the madding crowd of customers, co-workers and bosses.

Here’s the plan.

Becoming A European “Road Foodie”

Becoming A European “Road Foodie”

“Where should we eat?”

That question arises so often while traveling away from home that at times it seems as though dining out was the entire purpose of the trip.

Maybe it is, if you are a “Foodie” with a capital “F.”

But even if your journey wasn’t originally food-focused, it could turn out to be.

At least if your are eating your way across Europe, one bite at a time.


Hopefully, this photo essay will have whetted your appetite for visiting Europe where we’ll be transporting you in a special month-long edition of Tales Told From The Road in August.
