Not To Be Trusted With Knives

The Internet’s leading authority on radicalized geese

I have *finally* finished uploading all my holiday photos to Flickr and that’s how many photos I took – 2,580. Well, I took a few more than that, but some were blurry or contained only the face of the random person who walked right in front of my camera as I tried to take a photo of something else, so I deleted those. So 2,580 useable photos. When you combine that with the 1,638 photos that my aunt took – well, that’s a lot of photos.

I don’t imagine you actually want to scroll through thousands of photos though, so I’m posting a few of my favourite ones here. And then I’ll write some blog postings about some of the stuff we did, and I’m sure I’ll put some of the photos in there too. And then I’ll stop flooding your social media streams with stuff about my holidays!

No trip would be complete without a picture of me in front of a sign, doing what the sign says not to do. Don’t sit on the steps. Pfft!

    Gorgeous pictures! I can’t wait to see more. I think you would make an excellent guardsman.

    Oh so THAT’S why you went to London! LOL

    Also, you’re right: no caption needed.

    Also also, I bet for you the Tardis really is bigger inside than outside.

    Thank you for putting together a list of highlights! 🙂
