One of my favourite pics from one of my favourite places.
I'm curled up on the sofa with two of my favourite humans, cups of tea and heaps of cusions watching The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.
Reminiscing of travels past and future, from tall frozen mountains, blue lakes and pretty cold feet to the baking hot African sun.

Did you know that the Sydney Harbour Bridge was opened in 1932? Before the opening ceremonies (there was a ceremony at each end) the bridge was load tested with as many as 96 stream locomotives positioned end to end on the four sets of railway tracks. The bridge was designed in the early 1920’s to have a footpath and two sets of railway tracks on each side with six lanes of traffic in the middle. Over the years that configuration has changed to allow for the increase in traffic as the the city expanded, and today trains pass over on the west side of the bridge, pedestrians on the east, and a whole lot of traffic passes in between the two.
The south east pylon is accessible from the pedestrian footpath and houses a museum and a viewing platform at the top.
As you walk across the bridge you can take some beautiful photos of the iconic harbour and surrounds, like this photo which was taken from the northern end of the pedestrian footpath.
Please read my blog post about a walk over the Sydney Harbour Bridge for more information! The link to my blog is in my bio. 🇦🇺
As we were meandering through the enchanting back streets of the seaside town of Nafplion, we turned a corner and discovered this quirky cafe. It had the half-car table setting, as well as old fashioned colourfully patterned travel suitcases incorporated into their tables and chairs. I was so taken with the decor that I had to stop and snap a few photos. 📷
There was an elderly couple sitting very close to the half-car table, so I framed the shot not to impose on their privacy. 📷
However, the next photo I took was of the suitcases and I was focusing on them, without realising that there was a group of Greek men sitting at the bar directly behind the suitcases - and therefore in the middle of my photo! So of course, to them, it looked like I was standing there taking a photo of them. They started teasing me, saying things like “come back and pose for a photo with me!” as well as other similarly awkward things. 📷
Cheeks scarlet with embarrassment, I politely declined their invitation and scurried away quickly to catch up with my family. 🤭
Wow I know where I get my dramatics from. My 90 something year old grandad was in hospital the other week (nothing serious), he was having weird hallucinations. After a few days he was brought home, when his clothes were out in the wash a hostage note was found. My grandad had written an entire hostage note ‘Send help’ it starts with 🤣 Have you ever know someone to hate hospital so much they write an entire hostage note? No me neither.
I take after my grandad in a lot of ways, we have the same nose, we both like a biscuit, and I have definitely inherited his anxiety! Well he’s all back to normal now and no more hostage notes 👍🏼
Off into London today, hoping for blue sky like this but after yesterday’s rain I won’t hold my breath ☔️
