They say a picture is worth 1.000 words, so here is a 2.000.000-words-worth collection of pictures I took in the nicest holidays I had for a very long time.
Disclaimer. The quality Picasa displays online is absolutely horrible, for which I apologize. I usually scale down the pictures myself at reasonable quality, but this seems to no longer help — Picasa now scales them one more time and compresses them so much it destroys them. One thing that might work is downloading the albums you want to see as a whole using the Picasa client for Windows.
