A Recap of My Summer Vacation: 2

Washington DC in a Nutshell:

Travelling it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller. – Ibn Battuta

 
Whenever I visit new cities, one thing I do is to try and find a few unique things to do in the evenings. I start by asking Mr Google for directions and for some iconic places of interest to visit. I always like to know the tourist attractions of any destination I travel to even before my arrival in such a place. Besides fun activities and an adventure on local foodies of the land, I like doing a bit of ‘nerding’ out in Museums to check out antiques and artefacts. These things fascinate me and I love to have good collages of photographs as souvenirs for the future. It’s hard to share the dozens of photos I’ve so far gathered on this platform. It will definitely take up the whole space in my blog as well.  Continue reading

The plan was to spend a week in London and then two weeks in Edinburgh. I anticipated it will be easier to get a  low fare train ticket from London to Edinburgh but I was wrong.  Continue reading

Weekly Photo Challenge – Bridge!

“For this challenge, interpret the theme “bridge.” You can go the same route as I did and capture any type or style of a bridge where you are, or go deeper and take a snapshot of something or someone that acts as a bridge in your life: a link, a connection, a mediator.” – Cheri Lucas Rowlands

When I saw this week’s challenge and the illustrative pictorial bridge, I was excited because I had the same photo of the Oxford bridge taken in 2008 when I visited Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire, UK, the Birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. It’s a major and busy tourist attraction! Perhaps I should post photos of this great place.  Continue reading

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Travel.

One of my hobbies is travelling. I enjoy travelling. I love to see new places. Vacation time is for relaxation. A time to explore. A time to wander about and have good fun. A time to discover hidden truths, a new culture and a new lifestyle. A time my uncanny curiosity is activated as I try to demystify any myth or stereotypical view I have of any race or people.
