I spent a lovely day in London at the weekend catching up with a friend. We ate good food, drank gin and tonic and she introduced me to the works of the prolific artist, Dale Chihuly, an American glass sculptor. I must admit I had never heard of him, but as soon as I glimpsed… Continue reading New Discoveries!
I was feeling a little apprehensive about the second part of our trip. We were going to Laos, a country that had been on the wish list for a while. I had done my research, but as always when we go to a new country I felt nervous. I didn’t know what to expect, I… Continue reading Elephant Conservation Centre, Laos
Blue sky, colourful frangipanis, warm weather - that's enough to make me smile! This photo was taken in Australia recently and now I am back in sunny (cough!) England, when I look at it, it brings back happy memories! Posted as part of the weekly photo challenge
I have so many photos of sunsets (they are one of my favourite things!), and these are some of my most recent. Taken on a trip to the Elephant Conservation Centre in northern Laos, this setting was pretty spectacular and watching the sunset over the lake was very special. It was so peaceful and quiet… Continue reading Sunsets Galore in Laos
I sat at the end of the wooden pier, perched on the bottom step, looking out at the scene in front of me. The sun was just starting to peek above the hillside, the mist was curling its way across the surface of the lake. There were a few squeals of laughter and soft splashing… Continue reading An Emotional Sunrise in Laos

The early morning mist was rising off the lake and shrouding the surrounding hills, partially obscuring their shapes. There were a few other boats passing us, with occupants similarly wrapped up… Continue reading Exploring Inle Lake, Myanmar
We had a week's holiday on the island of Lanzarote a few years ago. It was all about relaxation, eating good food and soaking up some sun. Lanzarote is one of the Canary Islands and is a surprisingly striking island, due to its volcanic terrain and lava fields - it may seem bleak at first… Continue reading Beautiful Horizons
Hands up who knew there was a Newcastle in Australia? No? Of you who did, how many have been there? That's what I thought! When I tell people I'm going there I am usually met with a blank face and have to explain whereabouts it is. Which is exactly what happened to me the first… Continue reading Newcastle….Australia that is…
I was expecting to wake up to rain (and possibly snow!) this morning, instead I was greeted with this... a very lovely surprise!
Well it's a very cold Monday morning and I wasn't too pleased to have to drag myself out of my lovely warm bed earlier, when it was still dark outside - I was a tad grumpy. However by the time I reached work I was met with this gorgeous sunrise... it helped to ease the… Continue reading A little Monday motivation
