Dirt tracks upon which a pride of lions rested.
Then a road which was not much more
than wheel tracks across Sua Pan,
one of the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans in Botswana.
The Sua Pan (or Sowa Pan) is a large natural topographic depression
within the Makgadikgadi region of Botswana.
The Makgadikgadi Pans were once a lake which
was larger in area than Switzerland.
It dried up several thousand years ago
Could we call this a water road, in Venice?
An extraordinary trip across to France and return via Eurostar.
Extraordinary because I was ‘talking’ to MGW’s cousin
via Facebook while under the Channel.
The Rocky Mountaineer.
Two days of travel through glorious scenery
with first class comfort and service
back to Vancouver.
the Peak2Peak gondola ride at Whistler a road.
However, it was the only way we could
Finally, there had to be a road of some sort
leading up onto the Athabasca Glacier
when we visited the Columbia Ice-field.
I doubt if we will ever get to ride in
one of these machines again.
During our visit to Europe in 2016
…such as this Gondola ride in Venice, and…
…a night at the Moulin Rouge in Paris.
After a twenty-four hour plane trip to London
we just could not pass up
on any of these ‘optionals’
Workers from all over…
My limited knowledge of lumberjacks’ work
tells me that they actually did climb trees
as part of every day work.
Memory could be way off though.
Happy to be corrected.
Amid that crowd is a Beefeater at work
guiding visitors around
the Tower of London.
While in Europe each guide carried a flag of some kind.
Trouble was there was so much to see
and dawdle over, the coloured flag
was often forgotten (by me).
All guides were very knowledgeable but
sometimes it was just nice to walk and look
without the constant commentary.
Our favourite African guide,
planning the next day.
Or was he offering up thanks for
a successful day just ended?
Black and White Challenge.
My focus is Glass Blowing this week.
We visited a glass blower in Venice, and…
watched as he created…
from this blob of coloured glass..
weeelll…he may have prepared on earlier…
but this was to the outcome.
I cannot remember if he completed the task
from ‘go’ to ‘whoa’ while we were there,
however, the result was not a blurry glass work.
Blame that on my hands and slow shutter speeds.
