First up a lovely view from…

…our Bed and Breakfast at Matta Matta,

New Zealand.

Just a few minutes drive from

The Hobbiton Movie Set.

Bucklands B and B from memory.

The rest is situated a world away…

in Vienna’s Schonbrunn Palace Gardens.

We could have spent all day

wandering through these gardens.

However, we had to be thankful for a few hours.

A view of features of some of

the National Parks visited

during the past few years.

Denali National Park, Alaska.

After spending eight hours in a cramped bus

we finally managed some clear captures

on our way to Fairbanks the next day

of a clear, though distant, Mt Denali.

Our first sighting of a lion pride in

Kruger National Park,

South Africa

Our first and only leopard sighting in

Kruger National Park,

South Africa

Our first evening and sunset in

Chobe National Park, Botswana.

This sun was setting on Namibia,

just across the Chobe River.

We never can see another country

while standing in Australia.

Even the northern tip of Cape York is 150km

from New Guinea’s southern coast and there is

no place on Cape York high enough

to see New Guinea.

Much closer to home is the

Port Campbell National Park.

The home of the Twelve Apostles

and many other places well worth visiting.

highfalutin

(especially of speech, writing, or ideas)
pompous or pretentious.

The general consensus was that..

…there would have been a fair degree of

pomposity and pretentiousness

within and around

Schonbrunn and Versailles Palaces.
