It's been a little slow over here in MD lately. So has anyone taken a vacation this summer? Where did you go? Did you leave the computer at home?

I just got back from a week at Myrtle Beach and didn't read a single email all week. I'd much rather watch bikinis instead of browsing gmail.

Isn't this Holiday time in Europe?

I've been to Denmark at the end of July / beginning of August. It's not an unfamiliar country for me since my mother is Danish - we stayed there at my aunt and uncle, and we also had a party because my aunt turned 60 earlier this year.

Denmark is beautiful, especially in the summer when the weather is sunny. My family lives in the countryside, on an island with small villages, a lot of farms, and a lot of fields with corn (mainly wheat and barley). On the eastside there are 100 m high chalk cliffs, and hills with a lot of wild flowers, including some rare orchids.

I just came back home after 4 weeks in Ontario, Canada. Camping, hiking, cycling, canoeing, kayaking and visiting crazy rollercoaster parks

It was back in May, my wife and I went walking in Scotland and northern England for about 5 weeks. I guess it was summer, at least we avoided the crap weather which the British Isles has been having this year. We walked across England, then back across Scotland, and we climbed Ben Nevis on our rest day. Total walking, about 550 km.

Nice. I was walking for 5 days in Cornwall last month (total distance 70 miles), and could barely walk afterwards! Slightly more impressively, we were walking with someone who was in the middle of completing the South West Coast Path (630 miles total).

Paul, this is amazing. And humbling. If I were wearing a hat, I'd doff it off.
