Absolutely Not Your Monkey

Europe video up

I finally got the travel video from my trip to France and Spain over last Chinese new year break up:

It’s the first video I’ve done with the Panasonic LX3, and while it is good with low-light situations and has a wider, faster lens, the colors seem more muted than those of the Canons I’ve used before, the vertical lines are more egregious, and the image stabilization isn’t quite as good, either. That said, it did ok considering, and I enjoyed making this video to give you a taste of what the trip was like, in addition to the endless blogging and pictures (which I still haven’t finished putting up on Flickr.com yet). It’s 46 minutes long, with moderate swearing, but no nudity this time. Heh.

  1. I am planning to take a trip to London and Paris in September this year. From your video, it seems Spain is more interesting than Paris. Well, my partner is Canadian-French, so he insists to stop at Paris for few days. As he speaks French, so I will be fine in Paris. Do you like Paris? Is it easy to travel in Spain as an English-speaking traveler?

  2. I enjoyed Paris, but we were only there three days, so I couldn’t make a really conclusive impression of it. It’s definitely worth seeing, and the weather should be much nicer for you at that time. I speak a little Spanish, and one of my traveling partners speaks some as well.

  3. Thanks. So far, stopping at Paris is for sure. Will get more information about Spain and then make a decision. By the way, do you know the music in the cab when you guys took to the airport. It is between 43:31 and 44:00. I have heard this beautiful song many times, but nobody can tell me what this song is. PLEASE…

  4. I’m not sure, but it sounds like a movie soundtrack.
