If you are curious to see the types of vacation rentals available in Italy, Switzerland and England, have a look at the places we have stayed in over the past ten years.
These are the places we have stayed since I got my first digital camera – from 1999 to the present. They give you a good idea of the types and quality of vacation rentals available in these countries.
Send me your links
If you have some great Europe travel photos or know of websites or Flickr accounts with great photos, send me the link and I will add it to the resources on my main photo page. Contact Pauline.
Third time lucky!
First I set up PhotoPost to display my photos on Slow Europe because I was used to it from SlowTrav. But I don’t like how it works and it was overkill for what I needed, so I looked for a better solution.
I found Gallery2 which is great software with easy to change templates. I uploaded my photos again. But it never clicked for me and was once again overkill for what I needed.
My final decision is SlideShowPro which fits into Adobe Lightroom. I use Lightroom to catalog all my photos and this lets me enter titles and descriptions in one place. I upload from Lightroom to SlideShowPro director which sits on the server. Then I link to it from my Slow Europe pages. It is a bit fiddly but in the end means I do all my photo work in Lightroom, which I really like. And you can view the photos one by one or in a slideshow.
So, photos have been redone – Slow Europe Photos.
Note – In 2012 I changed to Juicebox to display photos on the website.
The funny thing about all this is that I don’t have great photos. I use a Canon Elph because it is small and fits in my pocket. I take quick and practical photos. I just want to give people a feel for some of the towns we visit, walks that we do and vacation rentals that we stay in. I used to write all those “Instructions for Visitors” pages on SlowTrav and cannot get out of the habit of photographing traffic signs, parking meters and shops.
I only have a few photo essays uploaded, but will add more over the next few months.
