    ... for the express purpose of Photography?

    "Travel abroad" and "City Break" are rather different things. I quite seldom go to cities any more: I generally prefer towns and villages; though paradoxically I seldom find much inspiration in the countryside in between. I love old buildings. That's one reason we left California.

    It does rather take the shine off travelling doesn't it?

    I rarely go anywhere without a camera so any trip which involves an overnight stay will be partly for photographic reasons.

    No, not really - just business travelling. ;)

    Does Photokina count?

    As always it is a very badly worded poll - "for the express purpose" implies that that would be the only purpose but re-interpreting it as "for a major purpose" the answer is yes I frequently travel....

    My thoughts exactly! Another poll without an appropriate answer for me.

    We’ve taken several city breaks in Europe, and photography has been an important part for me (and a drag on the sightseeing for my wife!), but even alone I wouldn’t take a city break if I wasn’t keen to see the city, or had some other reason than photography to go.

    When I lived in Kent popping over to France for a long weekend was always an easy option. However I never went to cities as such.

    Having watched "The Silk Road" on BBC last night I am planning a trip to Samarkand - does that count?

    Just come back from four days in Krakow Poland. A very photogenic city.

    I agree. Did you manage to visit the Museum of Photography while you were there?
