The Return from Egypt

Adam J PurcellAdam J Purcell   on November 15th, 2008

We are safely back from Egypt. It’s almost like we were never there already!

I can’t speak for the others, though I’m sure they’ll agree, I had a fantastic time. So much to do there, so little time.  I plan to do a proper travelogue entry on the main Staggering Stories site for the next update.  In the meantime, here are a few more photos (I took over a 1000 photos!):

Staggering Egypt Holiday

Adam J PurcellAdam J Purcell   on November 7th, 2008

Just a quick note to say that the three Staggering Stories Podcast team members that were due to holiday in Egypt (those being Adam, Fake Keith and Real Keith – plus two others not ever heard in the podcast) have arrived safely.

In fact we could go so far as to say we are having a great (but exhausting) time of it right now!

Here’s a few quick photos taken with my new camera. These are the JPEG versions without any kind of editing. At some point I’ll bring the RAW files into a tool to improve them.  Right click and ‘View Image’ to see them without the browser/Wordpress forced image resizing that gives those nice jaggies…
