    Holiday/vacation plans and pictures

    We had some great pictures on the old board. It's easier than ever to take photos nowadays. Hell, it's easier to travel around the world too.

    This thread is to share your travel plans, whether those are firm or just dream ideas. Alternatively, share the trips you've been on and show us your pictures, if you feel like it!

    A few years ago, I went to Barcelona for a few days. While I was there, I unwittingly happened upon something called a correfoc, which was part of an annual religious festival they were holding. Here's a description from Wikipedia.

Dancing to the sound of a rhythmic drum group, they set off their fireworks among crowds of spectators. The spectators that participate dress to protect themselves against small burns and attempt to get as close as possible to the devils, running with the fire. Other spectators will watch from "safe" distances, rapidly retreating as necessary.
    I decided to become one of the spectators who participated, and took a few photos from inside the crowds whilst running with the fire. Here's the money shot.

    That is awesome Genny.

    I'm going on holidays in June, firstly I have a weekend away with my Youth Group, that will be fun but stressful and lots of work because I am basically in charge of 20 kids and 3 other leaders. Everyone else has roles but I'm the one in charge of it all ultimately.

    After that though my wife and I are going down to the South Coast of NSW to a little coastal town. It will hopefully be very relaxing for us but there are also a number of great walks you can go on with waterfalls and stuff so I'll make sure I snap some pics. It'll be out last holiday before having kids so hopefully it will be a good break.

    Back from Prague. Most notable thing about the Czech Republic is the beer, which is high quality and at about 40-50 crowns for half a litre is significantly cheaper than here.
