2010 was my first trip to Paris where I fell in love with the architecture and simple food I enjoyed. 2011 was a flying visit on the way back from Valencia. In 2012 we took another flying visit on the start of a 3 week European tour as happy Europeans with our European passport that let us freely move around European. Le sigh.

The main purpose of our trip was to celebrate my then girlfriend (now wife’s) 40th birthday. The b-side to our trip was a road test of the new Fuji X100 which was graciously loaned to me from Fuji after I casually suggested the idea to them via Twitter. The trip would take us to Paris (you don’t say), Budapest, Venice, and Zadar. It was a trip to remember and this is how we started.
