Mt Sheba Resort,

Royal Arcade

could be considered a corridor

It’s certainly an internal passage of sorts

with doors leading to rooms

which we called shops.

I have added an escalator into

this week’s BW challenge

Escalator inside Dubai’s

Included a colour version just to show the difference.

Finally, our accommodation in Vienna

was at the Imperial Riding School…

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

Unfortunately I am back to ‘I think’ again.

After all the rhododendrons we sited

in New Zealand last year….

I think this may be another.

The only thing I am sure of is that

it was photographed at the

Mt Sheba Resort in South Africa.





While searching for some other photos

I discovered this Callistemon…

commonly known as Bottle Brush,

which was/is growing at the

Mt Sheba Resort in South Africa.

This one could be the Captain Cook variety.







Two continents and one island this week.

A scene from Day  2 of our

Rocky Mountaineer Train trip

to Vancouver, June 2018.

Whistler ski slopes, Canada, June 2018



Across the Pacific Ocean

and much closer to home is

New Zealannd’s…

Mount Ruapehu,

which is an active volcano

in Tongariro National Park.

New Zealand’s North Island’s major ski resorts

and only glaciers are too be found on Mt Ruapehu.

Across the Indian Ocean is the Mt Sheba Resort.

And a not too long drive from Mt Sheba

is an area known as God’s Window. 

Stunning views



Sausage Tree Safari Camp…

…we were able to admire the Drakensberg Mountains

and enjoy a drink  or meal while doing so.
