My First Working Holiday

November/December 1997

On one of my travels with Stowe Computing Australia I found myself in Swansea, Wales
working at the offices of MicroCompass Systems Ltd. After work was over I took a
short holiday to London and Paris before heading home.

A Holiday In Japan

February 2004

And then I visited my brother in Tokyo, Japan to see him get married. Plenty of sight seeing.
Thanks to Hiroko Miki for the trip to Nikko.

Sunny winter afternoon. My first step outside in Japan.
