In the Spring and Summer of 2013 we spent time in Europe. Specifically Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, and Amsterdam in The Netherlands. Several months in total we spent exploring these extraordinary places. I was really fortunate to be able spend a lot of time (not always as much as I would have liked) on the streets in both cities as well as in other cities in The Netherlands (while we lived in an apartment in Almere, the city built on land reclaimed from the sea in the late 70s, and that is an extrordinary place in its own right, reminding us of the futuristic places we've seen on science fiction movies). To say it was all a life changing and enhancing experience would be an understatement. Suffice it to say, our time in Europe was one of the highlights of my traveling life, and as far as my work goes such a learning and growing. Please enjoy some of the results of my work there.
