My contribution for this week’s

Dark and Light

 

Many times I have heard and often joined in singing

the song relating to bluebirds and the white cliffs of Dover…

for as long as I can remember.

However, never once did I think they would be

actually that white…

 or in this case light in colour.

Some light piercing the dark from…

the London Eye.

to visit in September, 2016.

Although we only made it to the second level

of the Eiffel Tower it was an experience

not to be forgotten.

We were told that we could climb up, inside,

the Arc De Triomphe,

however, my knees, ankles and feet

suggested otherwise.

It was wonderful to get back on British soil again.

I don’t know how many times I said ‘grazie

only to realise that we had crossed a border

and now should have said ‘merci‘, or ‘danke‘.
