When I found out that this weeks #FriFotos theme was Lakes I was a bit disappointed because last week I’d already shared my favourite place in the world, my grandparents lakeside cottage in Quebec. What other lake could I share, I thought, and then I had a lightbulb moment. Dove Lake in Tasmania!
The weather of Summer 2012 has been absolutely revolting here in the UK. It has been 15 degrees and overcast and/or raining for what seems like months now and it can really get a person down!
On a dark and foggy evening you can see why people believe that York is the most haunted city in the world. The damp fog hangs heavy over the narrow, winding streets and makes the city’s maze of alleyways seem even more dark and mysterious.
There are two things that Belgium is known for the world over, waffles and chocolate. I really don’t know how Belgium isn’t the fattest nation on the planet with all the deliciously decadent food – I suspect it has something to do with all of those bicycles.
I’ve been out of the #FriFotos loop for the last few weeks with being on the road, but we’re back today and it’s really the most perfect theme. I’m currently studying for the Masters in Museum Studies so the topic of museums couldn’t really be much better for me.
Well, 15 days later we are back on British soil. We have travelled to 4 countries, and visited at least 7 cities. We have travelled by plane, train, tram, bus, car, bicycle, and ferry.
If the theme is waterfalls the only option for me really is Niagara Falls – Canadian side, of course! The giant Horseshoe Falls located on the Niagara River in Southern Ontario are a sight to behold, and to hear. They are beautiful and awe-inspiring to look at
The theme today on #FriFotos is Holy Places and I have no shortage of photos. Although I’m not a religious person I love visiting religious sites when we travel
Never one to disappoint, I present the second installment of our Paris exploits. Today I bring you the beauty of Notre Dame de Paris, the majesty of the Arc de Triomphe, and the romance of la Tour Eiffel.
Paradise for me will always involve sun and water. The few hours we spent on Praia de Marinha in the Algarve, Portugal a few months ago were the most relaxing I’ve had for a long time. Soft sand, bright sun, refreshing water, and good company – that is paradise for me.
