Sue's Excellent Voyage 2012
Rather than post individual highlights, I choose instead to share the photo site I created for my 2012 travels abroad, from London to Istanbul. A few destinations are missing, as my camera broke and then my smart phone (then my only camera) was stolen. A new one was purchased in Genova, and there the photo journal continues. A few pics are personal and even silly - and there is also my "pilgrimage" to the Ferrari Museum in Maranello, a lifelong goal - but most are of the landscapes, architecture and uniquely local quirks I love to capture. Most are not titled, as I took thousands of photos while moving around and there wasn't enough time to label each one. Instead, my hope and intent is that the photos capture the essence of a place and its people, with no need for words. You know the old saying about what a picture is worth....and indeed, the experience of this journey is beyond words, especially due to the wonderful, generous new friends I couch surfed with and dear old friends I visited. I hope you enjoy my photo journal!

London at Dusk
Walking along the Thames river during a trip to London as the sun sets is a MUST. The natural lighting made this a perfect time to take a stroll past the street performers and merry go rounds.

Dine like a King
Connoiseurs of fine dining are spoilt for choice in London. Innovative Michelin-starred chefs are constantly trying to outdo one another, which translates into a gourmet roller-coaster for the customer. Try Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester, Godron Ramsay's Petrus, or Chef Chris Galvin’s Galvin at Windows if you're in the market for delectable French haute cuisine. For something a tad more British, try Dinner by Heston Blumenthal. The restaurant is famous for its fascinating interpretation of historic British dishes using modern techniques of molecular gastronomy.

Rufus Sewell in London baby!
New Years Eve, 2009 as we were exploring Notthing Hill, we see someone famous pass us. Only one person of the group realizes just who it was, right away. It was the great and famous Rufus Sewell! I would not always suggest going after a famous person, they just want to be in peace. However on this day we decided to try and get a photo. Rufus stops into a hat shop, being the gentleman he is. As he passes me, I make eye contact (trying to stay calm) and ask if there would be any possible chance if we could have a photo. He puts the stack of hats down and is nicely willing to pose with all 5 of us!! I hope we did not cause a scene because then others start to realize who it is! I will never forget this amazing experience and just how much of a gentleman Rufus Sewell IS. Moral of the story, keep your eyes open while in big cities. You never know just who may walk by!
