Amsterdam huh...

My BFF uses Kodac to share her photos, but I think she may pay a fee. I think you might be able to use photobucket.

Try Shutterfly. I've never used it personally. But my spread-all-over-the-US family members share by it a lot.

Photobucket works pretty good, but some others that you might consider are Flicker and Fotki.

While in Brussels, do yourself a favor and go have dinner at La Maison du Cygne.

It is a bit pricey, but most definitely worth it.

No matter what country you're in, try the local beer/wine. It's always good. (and usually cheaper than soda)

I spent a semester in Europe and the food/drink was as much of an adventure as the sites. Eat, drink, be merry... and make public transportation your friend!

Ron, when a restaurant leaves an impact on you like this one, it is not easy to forget.

Ron, another one to consider is Shutterbug.com. And pop into Barnes and Noble. Last week I saw what appeared to be a very easy reading guide to digital photography, and there is probably a quick guides.

Have a great time when it finally comes.

thanks jennifer!

actually, i have been fortunate enough to have gone to europe 4 previous times and it really is all it's cracked up to be. this is my gf's first time there. based on our plans, i'd have to say that this will without a doubt be the best of my 5 trips.

Ron, you aren't missing out with the Flying Pig. I spent a school year in Europe when I was 19 and stayed at a lot of hostels. The Flying Pig is definately near the bottom of the list. Other accommodations to aviod: The Generator in London, and the Yoho in Salzburg. By all means, go to the bar at the Yoho, but aviod the accommodations (shudders).

I use Picturetrail.com....some free space and then a 20 annual fee for tons additional space.

A coworker here said she uses Shutterbug too...and no fee and tons of free space.
