~~~~~

I have added an escalator into

this week’s BW challenge

Escalator inside Dubai’s

Burj Al Arab.

Inside the Burj Al Arab elevator.

Included a colour version just to show the difference.

An undercover walk at Mount Sheba


Finally, our accommodation in Vienna

was at the Imperial Riding School…


…where there were some long straight walks to our rooms.

Walks.


Walkers alongside Ballarat’s Lake Wendouree.  

Lake Wendouree was the site of all rowing events

during the 1956 Melbourne Olympics.

The walk from Eastern Beach car park.

At the top of the hill, you are only a five minute walk

from Geelong’s Central Business District.

The reverse view down to the Promenade.

Nearing the top of Lucerne’s

Mt Rigi.

The walk in context.

 

 

Walking in Schoenbrunn Palace gardens

 

 

 

 

We didn’t have the time or energy

to walk all to the back of the garden.

~~~~~~

Like sheep to slaughter…

…we followed guides through

crowded Roman streets.

 

Turning a corner more tourists,

however, we were there/here.

People, people everywhere taking their

Trevi Fountain photos…

 

…then consulting their Rome ‘must do’ lists

before moving onto to the next crowded attraction.

When MGW’s cousin asked me to look up

her fallen relatives in their Western Front Cemeteries…

well I can’t print my initial reaction.

At the time I was crossing the English Channel

in the Eurostar Tunnel.

Not to be put off I asked for and received almost immediately

their names and the cemeteries in which

these men were interred.

This was forwarded to my guide while still underwater.

Thank goodness for Facebook Messenger!

Serre Road Cemetery No. 2 was our first stop

where 7,127 fallen soldiers are buried.

And I had to find one grave!!

As we walked through the gate’s arch

I noticed this in one wall.

Our guide pulled the knob

and the door opened.

Reaching in he withdrew a book in which was listed

every soldier buried in Serre Road Cemetery No. 2.

The row in which they were buried and their grave number.

That book, which was at each cemetery we visited,

made grave hunting on

The Western Front

so much easier.

FOWChallenge-Gourmand

~~~~~

~~~~~

gourmand

a person who enjoys eating and often eats too much.

I could often used the word ‘gourmand’

to describe my eating habits…

at the start

of a guided tour/holiday.

Usually by the first morning stop…

…the sight off food is making me ill and

normal eating habits

quickly return.
