Yes, we're finally back in the saddle.

I was in Europe for the first three weeks of November, doing some work for Expedia, and then speaking at a conference in Amsterdam. That's why the blog has been quiet.

But we're back now, and we'll be here for the next few months, sharing our thoughts and comments for your amusement and criticism.

Meanwhile, here are a couple of photos from the trip:

Wildlife from the Chateauneuf du Pape:

The ancient Roman town of Glanum--with the Mont Ventoux in the distance.

Pastries in the market in Lyon.

Castles on the Rhine--home of the robber barons

Stained glass in the cathedral of Strasbourg

And few holiday decorations for a shop in Strasbourg.

All the rest of the photos are here: LINK
