WPC: A Face in the crowd

Given that we are getting closer to St. Patrick’s day, here is a face in the crowd from last year’s parade.

WPC: Sweet

When I saw these Christmas decorative items on the Christmas Markets in Padua my first thought was ‘Oh! they are so sweet’. If only I had enough space and money to get them home. I am sure you will also agree that they are all cute and sweet 😉

Let me be your guide…

What do you love about where you live? hmmm… Well, let me be your tour guide and show you around London (not that you haven’t seen enough of it already)

Well, for starters, you have a lot of ‘must see’ and ‘touristy’ places like this one (The London Eye)tour1.JPG

If you plan well in advance you could see some of these very fancy parades that they have like the London Mayor Show, St Patrick’s Parade etc.  It is free and fun to watch. Sometimes the weather can be a bit iffy and you might end up freezing your innards off, but it is still worth a visit. tour2.JPG

During the festival season (especially between Halloween & New Year) you will see a lot of fancy light decorations everywhere in the city. It is free and it will lead you to do a walking tour of some of the very popular areas of London.

If you don’t fancy any of those then you can just walk by the Thames River or do a Canal Walk and enjoy some solitude (in most of the places). Walking is as always good for your health too.

And of course, there are way too many museums for you to pick and choose and enjoy a day in exploring science, fashion, history, or art. Most of it is free too. tour5.JPG

These are just a few to start with. There are loads more but I guess I will leave that for some other opportunity. Until then, ciao and Happy Touring! 🙂

There are many such posts related to my travels on my travel blog if you want to have a look.

WPC: Bear-ing Theme

While we were in Padua, we saw a recurring theme which is very apt for this week’s Weekly Photography Challenge, Variations on a Theme.

We didn’t know what the relevance of this polar bears was to Christmas in Padua, but when we saw them near the City Center, we were like “What!!!???”

Then near the Eremitani church, we found them again, but this time there was an additional member.

Again in another place, there were there but in a slightly different stance 😉

Anyone has any idea why the polar bears are important during Christmas?
