Not a great variety of bikes this week.

However, they come from many locations.

On display at a nearby market day a few years back.

 

Some of Melbourne’s ‘rent a bike’ collection.

 

Brugge bikes.

Amsterdam.

MGW was nearly run down by

a motor scooter similar to this one.

It ran a red light.

After this incident we were told

the lights were/are only a ‘suggestion’ 🙂

 

Tower of London ‘rent a bike’ collection.

The peloton nearing the end of the

Cadel Evans Classic last year.

Support vehicles and bikes.

 

Four laps of Geelong to go.

 Sorrento, Naples, motorbikes

My contribution for

this week’s challenge

Letter-V

(Needs to start with V…contain at least 6 letters)

Monaco during our 2016 holiday/Vacation

Part of the Moorabool Valley near Geelong.

 

 

Most buildings in Amsterdam are Vertical, however,

some do lean like the Tower of Pisa.

 

Even from an altitude of 40,000 feet it is difficult

to appreciate the Vastness of the Antarctic ice pack.

I always The Creation of Adam would dominate

the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican City.

  However it was swallowed up by surrounding panels.

According to Wikipedia it is substantial

9 ft 2 in × 18 ft 8 inches, it is so far above

one’s head it seems you could

hold it in your hands.

Cee-BW-Challenge-Houses

~~~~~

Compared to most houses in Australia…

most of us thought many European cities

contained small houses which went up instead

of sprawling along the ground.

On the other hand, this is the back yard of

Schonbrunn Palace.

It is also known as the

Hapsburg’s Summer Cottage.

There is only 1,441 rooms in Schonbrunn Palace

compared to 3,000 rooms in the

Hapsburg’s Winter Palace.

At the other end of the spectrum was

this refugee camp at Calais.

Back to Amsterdam and this tiny house

squeezed in between others not much larger.

Finally, one of the many houseboats

moored in Amsterdam’s canals.

My perception of ‘small’ is based on the frontage.

Only those living in my ‘small’ houses know

how roomy they are…particularly when a house

is several stories high.

My contribution for this week’s

Cups

 

A couple of weeks back…

I did post these in my BW Tuesday post.

The black and gold photos…

 are African souvenirs.

While this display was found in

an Ily Coffee Shop

in Amsterdam in 2016.

Black and White Tuesday

~~~~~

We purchased, or should I say MGW purchased,

these cups/mugs…
at Johannesburg airport three or four years ago.

 Not just cups but a matching vase…

which was nicely decorated with some form water plant.

In Amsterdam last year we came upon

this display of tea cups in a coffee shop.

Travel Theme-Cream

My

Cream

Travel Theme.

My creamy post for this week was nearly a non-event…

until I remembered our morning tea slice

of Black Forest Cake which probably contained

enough calories to last us several days.

That thought then lead on to our

strawberry and cream morning tea.

Sadly we did not sample these as we were

still feeling the effects of a

larger than normal breakfast.
