Columbian Carriage Ride (Tourist Time)

When in Cartagena, Columbia we treated ourselves to a guided horse and carriage ride around the old city. The sound of the horse hooves on the stones whilst viewing the history from another era was so wonderful. If only it hadn’t been so darn hot!

Over this summer vacation I’ve been taking trips of another kind every Thursday, traveling down memory lane reminiscing about all the traveling we’ve done to various parts of the world as a family.

Thank you for your kindness and patience over the past two months
– regular programming will resume next week!😃

 

 

 

 

 

Quite the pipes! (Monochrome Monday)

When moving to East Iceland, knowing were going to be living in a small village, we decided to spend a few days in Reykjavik to see what shops there for future reference and to also play tourist. One thing you can’t miss no matter where you are is the city’s majestic church.

Once inside, as lovely as the interior of the church is, you can’t help but keep looking at the huge organ pipes at the front of the church. Whilst there we were fortunate enough to hear someone practicing at the organ. WOW!

 

 

 

 

Grinning through hurricane winds at Peggy Cove! (Tourist Time)

On our way to New York our ship needed to make an unscheduled stop in Halifax to wait for Hurricane Sandy to pass. The up-side was we were able to visit the graves of the Titanic passengers and to visit Peggy’s Cove. As cold and blustery as it was!

Sledding Lapland Style (Tourist Time)

Something we would have loved to have brought back with us from our Christmas in Lapland were the sleds they used. They were like a chair  on skis. You’d push the back of the chair until you had a speed you were  happy with then stand on the skis. Just brilliant!

Borgarfjörður Puffins! (Tourist Time)

Where we lived in East Iceland was just a couple of hours away from Borgarfjörður, a tiny village with a bird estuary that provided a fabulous nesting ground for puffins and other bird life. For us it was the puffin that held our full attention!

Focusing on Paris! (WPC – Focus)

Towards the end of our first visit to Paris, both children were bought a souvenir camera that contained images of sights we’d already visited or were about to visit. The children were more than delighted with the photos contained within.

How funny was it though whilst still traveling through Paris, Miss Almost-Three held up her toy to “film Paris“. She was so focused on her filming that at no point did she realize what was outside the window wasn’t what was within her camera!

Focus is the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge for this week.

What a fox! (OWPC: Fox)

Early last month, Miss Fourteen and I attended a pottery painting class. Whilst I chose an owl piggy-bank to add to hubby’s owl collection, darling daughter chose this fox. Isn’t it sweet?

The rainbow forming a heart around her face and chest darling daughter painted is so gorgeous! Fox is the One Word Photo Challenge this week from Jennifer Nichole Well’s.

And it just so happens it’s my darling girl’s birthday today – where did those fourteen years go?

💖 Happy Birthday beautiful girl! 💖

 

 

 

 

Dangerously Close (WPC: Danger)

Looking down from our cruise ship as we passed through each of the three locks along the Panama Canal, you couldn’t help but hold your breath on seeing what a narrow fit our ship was. It appeared dangerously close.

Danger! is The Daily Post Photo Challenge for this week.
