Salford (Via Crete, Zakynthos, and Kos), July 21st 2018
Have Albus backpack will travel….
When i’m travelling, what things do i take for a piece of home
(1) My camera kit
It’s my hobby, and there’s no better time to capture some cracking scenery with my Nikon DSLR.
(2) Diary, Notepad and Writing stuff
When im out taking snaps, it pays to record where i’ve been. I normally keep a travel log of the events whilst im away, and this usually finds its way on to here,
(3) Boiled Sweets / Jelly Babies
I Buy these at the Airport, and they usually last all week.
(4) Paperback / Kindle / Phrasebook
Reading Material for when the beach is out of bounds, the phrasebook helps me with the street signs and if i need any local questions. The kindle also acts as my music box and has a couple of video games on it
Well this is my back yard, My Back Gate…. (Dire Straits – My Parties, 1991)
Five things that make my house , my home.
(1) The Soapstone Elephants and a patch of Green
Purchased on various holidays in the med
Located in the living room that over looks the garden – our little patch of green.
Home Turf Well first off, when you’ve driven round to the front of the house – there’s the welcoming committee – “Sons of Fred” – namely three spruce trees that line the garden fence and the path leading up to the door of the house – and the various flower pots around it.
(2) The Big Red Sofa
Located in the living room, a lovely place to relax, and has a lovely view of the front garden
(3) The Front door Sign
Particularly proud of this one – Why? Because I made it.
Created from some wood and some door numbers and a spare lion shaped door knocker, the other two are actually on the doors 🙂
(4) The Menagerie of objects
Mum has her owls, Dad has his Alabaster Cats – and me ? I’ve got my turtles from my journeys abroad (one Greek, the other Turkish). and these animals ? they’re all around the house (Dad’s puddy tats are in their own special spot – to keep them safe from wondering hands 🙂 ) The two turtles have been joined by two others recently – they’ve come from the Sea – Life Centre across the bridge in Old Trafford and were purchased when we took the nephews visiting there.
(5) My little hideaway
The place where I create this Blog 🙂 – and also the place where I do my listening, painting reading and writing – I also process the pictures I take with my digital camera
