Sabbatical Perugia

Second half of 2006, I had a sabbatical leave from Eindhoven university. Together with Lara, I went to the beautiful city of Perugia, capital of Umbria, in Italy. Here I worked at the Università degli Studi di Perugia for a couple of months. Some of our adventures are in the blog (in Dutch) we wrote in those months.


One of my hobbies is photography. I first got a digital compact camera, many photos listed below were made with this very good, early, digital camera (Canon PowerShot G1). A few years back I got my first SLR, a Nikon D70. May 2011, I replaced my D70 with a D5100, which in turn got upgraded to a D7000 (November 2012) and I currently use that. People say the best camera is the one you happen to have with you. For me, that is my iPhone.
