Trip down the travel lane

For this week’s photography challenge (or was it last week’s) I am going to go through my travels in 2017.

We did some small inside the city stuff, but I am not considering those for now. Let’s begin with Windsor. I have been here earlier, but it was Mr M’s first visit to this city. WP00000003

Since we were there, we also walked around to Eton which was just around the corner and enjoyed some Eton Mess (a very lovely pudding)

We did like Eton more than Windsor, just to record the facts 😉

We then made our way to Oxford for a day trip, which was lovely (except for the weather of course…was pouring down on us for most of the trip, but that didn’t dampen our moods hehe! )WP00000001

I have never been to Skandavel, a small multi-religious ashram in Carmarthen in Wales, so Mr M thought that I should try it out. It was a beautiful place and those few days we stayed there, we were totally cut off from the world (to the most extent) and we did our level best to cleanse ourselves spiritually.

We decided that we should complete this year by visiting Padua (and Venice for a day) in Italy. A very historic town but hardly explored. It is known for its famous Basilica of St. Anthony. We just loved the calm and quiet of this lovely city. More on that later when I actually find some time from my busy holidays 😉 WP00000005

Hope all of you are enjoying your holidays and relaxing after those heavy Christmas meals. I have some more fun stuff to show you, but it might take a day or two. Until then, ciao!

corner

Love is just around the corner, any cozy little corner.
Love is just around the corner when i’m around you.
I’m a sentimental mourner, and i couldn’t be a loner,
When you keep me in a corner just waiting for you.

-Frank Sinatra

WPC: Unusual

I love it when I find some unusual text or quote like this one from Eton. I definitely wouldn’t mind having this on my front door 😉 What do you think?

For this week’s photography challenge, I go with this shot I took in Eton which was cheeky. It talks about a very specific time or not 😉
