I don’t have any plan yet but I am thinking I will spend my vacation on the beach this year. I like to go to Bahamas or Cancun Mexico or the Florida beach.

I'm dreaming about Scotland. I haven't been there so far. I want to see all these old mysterious castles, wander on heaths and cliffs ( :?: - a kind of high seashore) and try some old Scotch whisky, of course... :lol:

It's called Tomatina, and it makes me sick. Look how they throw away all those tomatoes... That's food, for godsakes! People are still dying of hunger in the world. :evil:

Finally we have a plan for our summer vacation. We are going to Orange county California for seven days and the tickets already have booked. It took a little bit time for us to figure out the place to entertain all of us and California is the place. It has beautiful beaches for me to enjoy, the Little Saigon for my wife to shop and dine, and the Disney Land to keep my kids busy. Yeah, they are very excited and can’t wait for it. Anyway this is our first trip to this area and I hope we will have a good time. I already have jotted down few places but I would appreciate any suggestion where to go and dine.

How is about you? Hope you have a great summer.

If you like snow, you should visit New England states in the winter time. Vermont and New Hampshire have a lot of snows for you to practice snowboard. :D

Sorry for late response. I was in the training and just got out from it. It’s too bad that I can’t meet you in person. I will be out again for that whole week. Oh well, I may see you in San Francisco. I love to go there in someday. By the way you have a great trip and have a good time in Boston and NY.

But Dixie! Moscow its a very expensive town! Prices are higher than in other towns. So maybe in your town such tour will be costs cheaper. Dont worry! I am sure that all your dreams are very soon turn to reality :wink:

For my the perfect place to go of vacations is Argentine, mainly the Argentinean south, is a beautiful place, in addition it has a delicious food. I want to know to me if somebody already has visited Argentine, that another place can recommend to me?

Okay, I'm done with traveling for 2007. The trip to Vietnam in the end of this year will have to be postponed since I need to save money for France and Italy next year and a cruise to Mexico.

Vince, did you go to L.A? :?

Yes I did Lenny. Actually we went to Orange County and we stayed in the Disneyland area. We also went to Hollywood and several beaches. I really love the beach there. It’s gorgeous. Of course we ate a lot of Vietnamese food in Little Saigon. Yep, the food there is must better than the food in Boston. Wow you are going to France and Italy next year? Cool! :wink:

LOL, right on about the food! If you think Vietnamese food in Calif. is better than Boston's, you should go to Waikiki in Hawaii. Jesus Christ, their food sucks big time! :x

Now I don't know about the trip. My aunt's going to Vietnam in January. My cousins might go with her, which makes me really want to go. One of my cousins is willing to backpacking with me from Saigon to Hanoi and then Hong Kong. If I don't go, the chance will only come up again in the next two or three years. Nonetheless, I cannot save money fast enough for the trip; I can be able to do it for the France and Italy trip, though. I don't know what to do....

Vince, did you go to L.A? :?
Yes I did Lenny. Actually we went to Orange County and we stayed in the Disneyland area. We also went to Hollywood and several beaches. I really love the beach there. It’s gorgeous. Of course we ate a lot of Vietnamese food in Little Saigon. Yep, the food there is must better than the food in Boston. Wow you are going to France and Italy next year? Cool! :wink:
:shock: You went to Universal Studio? Wow, I'm in Calif. but I haven't been there. Which one did your kids like better, Disneyland or Universal Studio?

LOL, right on about the food! If you think Vietnamese food in Calif. is better than Boston's, you should go to Waikiki in Hawaii. Jesus Christ, their food sucks big time! :x

Now I don't know about the trip. My aunt's going to Vietnam in January. My cousins might go with her, which makes me really want to go. One of my cousins is willing to backpacking with me from Saigon to Hanoi and then Hong Kong. If I don't go, the chance will only come up again in the next two or three years. Nonetheless, I cannot save money fast enough for the trip; I can be able to do it for the France and Italy trip, though. I don't know what to do....
Sorry for late response. Actually we didn’t go to Universal Studio. We just hung around the Hollywood BLVD area. The plan was for Universal Studio but everyone seemed too tire. Oh man, it was packed in the Disneyland but my kids enjoyed it. They didn’t want to leave.

Wow, it’s hard to decide. Both trips are very good to me. Do your best and good luck to your trip Lenny.

Wow, it's like from here to L.A or San Diego.
If I ever get married, I know for sure my honeymoon won't be in Europe!!! :D:D I can travel to Europe any time! I hope to go to Asia or America! Don't worry you'll get your invitation... some day... before we retire, hopefully!

8) I know the feeling! Every time I'm there, I never want to leave. I love Disneyland! But next time, I think I might go to the other park since I haven't been there yet. I heard it sucks, though. I heard Universal Studio also sucks. Maybe, I'll end up going to Disneyland again. Did you see the fireworks and the water show, Vince? By the way, only your kids enjoyed it? You didn't have a good time? :?

Ooohh, you lucky but...! I'm so jealous! Asia tour has always been my dream. Well, I don't count Thailand since I'm kinda iffy about that country, but Cambodia.... I have always wanted to go back there. I was there when I was five. And I only stayed for about a week or two, I don't remember. The country was peaceful and cultured.

Don't forget to take a lot of pictures to show us here, please. What mission are you on, by the way?

I got my ticket today!! First stop will be Beijing (3 days) and then off to Thailand to do a land crossing into Cambodia and then to Vietnam.

Don't worry, I will no doubt take lots of photos (I'm estimating 100,000 - seriously) but I only post them to my Facebook and Flickr. Photography is my mission.

:shock: You're kidding? Is this for your hobby or you're required to do it?

I've checked your album. You have a lot of good pictures there. They're so professional. How many pictures did you have to take to get a good one, in general?

Can you do me a favor? If you're in Vietnam, can you take pictures of bò bía dish and mangosteen in a professional way? I've been craving to eat them for three years; however, none of pictures online really satisfies me.

Yes, I got my ticket but I don't leave until the 26th of December. I return to Canada on the 16th of February so that's roughly 7 weeks altogether.

You checked my album? They look professional? Wow, that's quite a compliment. Photography is a hobby for me but a serious one. I only started 2 months ago.

Photography is not a thing of chance. You have to compose your shot before you take it. If I see a photo opportunity, I just need 1 shot, 3 to be absolutely sure.

I don't really know what bò bía is and I usually don't find a food dish interesting enough to be a photo subject but if I do come across it, I will take one for you. Same goes with mangosteen. Chances of me taking a picture of mangosteen is much higher though. Whether it is professional shot is well, up to fate, I guess.

Ooooh, my aunt is leaving in January. I'm still deciding on whether I should go with her or not. It's all about the money right now. If I could save enough, I'll probably go and see you in Hanoi. Otherwise, I'll probably go with my cousin in the summer to celebrate her graduation (if I don't care about the France-Italy trip).

That www icon you have there. I was curious to see what it was, so I clicked on it. It led me to your Flickr account. I loved your nature album, especially going home and elbow falls. Those are what I've been wanting to capture. However, I don't have the right camera to do it (ahem, being poor is the right term, actually). Other pictures in that album are equally good as well. Can you make it as your part-time job?

Hey, which one is your girlfriend in the miscellaneous album? Is she the one in jumping shot? Did you have to go to the countryside to take that photo? The yellow part is grass, right?

:shock: Really? I've read some books and tips about photography online. They said sometimes you have to take a lot of pictures to get an image you're satisfied. And then they talked about filters, lens, lighting, etc. I got confused and overloaded with those tips, so I didn't bother to learn more. I just come to photo.net to check their artworks. Some of them, I believed, had photoshop involved. I don't know a thing or two about photoshop...

Yaaay... and people praying in Angkor Wat, too? :twisted: :mrgreen:

I hardly get a good photo when I compose and check it too much, best photos I have got is more like accident. :oops:

Those albums there in Unknownsu homepage I think he must be a soo good camera that there isn't any skills needed. It's probably a camera who goes itself to forest and search interesting object's to shoot and so on. You only have to hold tight from camera's something, that don't get lost.

For a photo like Elbow Falls, you'll need an SLR to control the shutter speed. A neutral density filter would also help but is not absolutely necessary. Going Home can be taken with any camera but to get the strong hue in that photo, I used a circular polarizer which increases contrast and saturation.

There's much more to photography than just pointing and shooting. I have a Sony dSLR body, 4 lenses and 5 filters for different effects. I don't consider myself a photographer since the definition of photography is the art of painting with light. I have much to learn so I consider myself a newbie/amateur.

With the photography out there, I am positive I can make it a full-time job if I wanted to.

Yes, that jumping photo was taken in the prairies. The yellow field is hay, not grass.

Just because I'm going to Cambodia, what makes you think I'm going to Angkor Wat?

Hardi, thanks for the compliment. It might be hard to believe but none of the photos you see in my album are by accident. :wink:

I thought you wouldn't miss out this beautiful place. Look at it and tell me it's not pretty,

Angkor Wat

But if you're not going there, it's fine. Just a suggestion, ya know.
