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.
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! )
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 😉
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!

PS: Photographs from our recent one day trip to Oxford. Sadly we couldn’t cover as much as we had originally planned due to rain, but there is always a next time 😉 This place is definitely worth a visit again and in leisure.
Do you know that there is a band called ‘Glass Animals’? I chanced upon a song of theirs sometime back and since then I make sure to check out their list once in a while. They have an interesting set of songs. This is the latest song of theirs that captured my attention.
And they are from Oxford, go figure. After watching Inspector Lewis for a while I should say that Oxford is a place that is on my to-visit list 😉 One day!
