Back from Spain

I’ve been for a while in Spain, and I was lazy to update my English blog, I’m sorry! These are some of the pictures I took during my stay in Spain.

    Nice pics. Do you ever photoshop them? They always look extremely colourful, and vignetted.

    Do you think you’ll ever get the book translated into english?

    Andy H: I don’t have time for photoshoping… I use a Nikon D40 with a 18-200mm VR lens for those colorful pictures.

    Maybe it will be translated to english, who knows.

    awesome sites there (*^_^*)!

  • […] These are some pictures I took from my last travel from my place in Spain until my place in Japan. This time it took me 25 hours from the door in my house in Spain until the door in my house in Tokyo. There are not direct flights from Spain to Japan, it sucks! I always have to stop en London, Paris, Milan, Frankfurt or Helsinki. Next time I’m thinking to change and go by Dubai and stay there some days. […]
