Where I was for two weeks

Postby WingAdmin » Thu Aug 27, 2009 11:15 am



Some people might have noticed that I kind of disappeared for a couple weeks in mid-August. I was on a well-deserved vacation in the Lake District of England, and up into Scotland, including a boat cruise on Loch Ness.

I have over 1,300 pictures and videos to sort and get through - and so far I have managed to get all of the videos I took processed and uploaded, which you can have a look at, if you care.

Each one links to the YouTube video that I uploaded. My camera takes HD video, so if you have a fast enough Internet connection, you can click the little "HD" button when you get to the YouTube page to watch the videos in HD.

I also included a link to Google Maps for each video, that shows the location of where the video was taken. If it shows only road maps, click the "Satellite" button to view the aerial photos of the area.
