Holidays

Pictures from my holidays over the past few years, both in the UK and further afield. The act of putting my holiday snaps on the web means should anyone be interested they can view them at their own leisure, and they're not forced to at gun point when they come round for tea. I personally think there's some great pictures here, but then I would say that of course. If nothing else this can assist the more snobby among you to decide whether or not you have better holidays than I do.
