Hello people, hope this finds you all fit and well. Not been on for a while but I have been popping in for a read. So what's new with me, well not a lot really.
It has mainly been work or Granddad duties, more work i'm afraid to say, but I did manage to get myself down to the photo show at the NEC back in March and end up coming back with an Olympus OMD EM1 mkii :D. Then forward to May and a nice little trip to Stockholm for a couple of days to watch Manchester United in the Europa League final :a4: :a4:
Work, work and more work, then 2 days after my granddaughters 6th birthday we set of on our vacation, somewhere new. So on the 24th Sept we boarded a Turkish Air flight to Istanbul for a couple of nights before our 2nd flight, a nice 2am take off to Ho Chi Minh City ( Siagon ) in Vietnam for another couple of nights. Flight 3 took us from Siagon up to Danang for a night before a car trip to our final destination of Hoi An. A nice bit of R&R was required after all the travel, but we did manage to fit in a few trips while there, Marble Mountain, My Son Temple, a nice trip over Hai Van Pass for a day in Hue and I bagged myself a morning trip with a Dutchman (Hoi An Photo Walks).
So here comes some of the annual holiday snaps :lol:

Good to see you BK and thanks for sharing just a few of your pics......more please ;)

The pictures in Istanbul brought back very happy memories of our trip there a few years ago. A great city and so much to see.

And is your grand daughter really 6 already, wow how those years have flown. Time to add a pic to her thread?
