About this collection

In May 2003 I bought my first digital camera, a Canon PowerShot A70. When it stopped to function in 2008, it was replaced by yet another point-and-shoot camera, the Canon PowerShot SX110 IS. In 2012 I switched to the Micro Four Thirds system which in my opinion is the perfect compromise between quality and weight. Now I use two Panasonic camera bodies (the GH2 and the G6) and several lenses, mostly for travel photography.
In the collection Looking Back: Travel Memories I remember past journeys, posting one photo per day of the trip. In most cases the photo was taken on the same day.
If you follow this collection, please note: Here you will see only a fraction of the photos that I share on Google+. Currently I post most of my pictures in the collection Photos. If you like my photos, you should visit my Google+ profile https://plus.google.com/u/0/+G%C3%BCntherZettl/posts and follow me - you will then automatically follow any new collection and continue to see my images in your Google+ stream.

Remembering the journey in June 2007 ...
Day 2 (2007-06-08)

After breakfast we crossed the border to Liechtenstein where we stopped for some sightseeing in the capital Vaduz. Then we drove to Switzerland, following the road along the lakes Walensee and Zürichsee, then turning south to Lucerne (see photo). In the evening we returned to our hotel in Vorarlberg/Austria.

Day 1 (2007-06-07)

In June 2007 we spent a long weekend (starting with the public holiday on Thursday) in western Austria and some surrounding countries. On the way to our hotel in Vorarlberg we stopped at the Swarovski Kristallwelten in Wattens. This museum and park was designed by artist André Heller.

14 Days in the United States
Remembering the journey in January 2007 ...
Day 14 (2007-01-20)

I had caught a cold, therefore I did not take any photos on this day (today's picture was shot one day earlier) but took the subway to JFK airport early. I watched the landing of my plane, but suddenly my flight was cancelled because of technical problems. I got a seat in an Alitalia flight to Rome instead and from there back to Vienna.

Day 11 (2007-01-17)

I left the Howard Johnson hotel and drove to the Orlando International Airport. From here I flew to New York (with a stop in Charlotte, North Carolina), took the bus to Central Station and walked to my hotel in the 47th Street, where I arrived at 20:00.
Before going to bed, I took a walk to Times Square.

Day 10 (2007-01-16)

Once more I drove to Orlando and spent a day in a theme park: Universal's Islands of Adventure (I liked yesterday's Universal Studios theme park better). The last ride that I took on this day was called "Popeye and Bluto's Bilge-Rat Barges" - after it I was soaking wet (luckily I had a second t-shirt in my backpack).

Day 9 (2007-01-15)

Another beautiful day with almost summer temperatures (while the Weather Channel reported about the "Winter Blitz", an ice storm in the north of the United States, moving to the south and east).
I spent the day in Orlando in the Universal Studios theme park. January seems to be a good time to visit the theme parks, because at most attractions I had to wait less than 5 minutes, allowing me to take almost all rides (some like "Shrek", "Men in Black" and "Revenge of the Mummy" even twice).

Day 8 (2007-01-14)

I drove to the eastern coast of Florida and visited the Kennedy Space Center on Merritt Island.
When I wanted to return to my hotel in the evening, I discovered that my car had a flat tire. While I was still searching the telephone number of the rental car company, two other visitors and a security guard offered their help and changed the tire (thanks so much!). I drove to the Orlando International Airport where I got a new car.
