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
I woke up early this morning, the local wildlife were up with the sun. I’m unaware of what they were discussing….probably breakfast, or maybe football ⚽️ . If anybody knows what rooks , blackbirds, song thrushes, and pigeons talk about over breakfast…please let me know
I spotted two aircraft travelling over the skies of Salford this morning. Don’t know where they were going, but I’m sure it was some place nice and hot. Sun is slowly making its way above the horizon in the east, soon it will be bright and sunny
The soft rolling traffic from the early morning Trafford road makes a somewhat pleasant accompaniment to the sound of the ticking clock. But in what’s now known as a twenty four hour society/world , there’s always deliveries to be made, early morning jobs to get to and work to be done
There’s a break in the quiet rumble of the traffic, as a Motorcycle rider mistakes one of the carriageways for a stretch of the Isle of Man TT race course. It’s awoken the pigeons kipping in the eaves of the nearby apartment block.
Another trail of white crosses the Salford skies as the rumble of early morning traffic continues. The broadcasters will be preparing the news items for delivery about now, whilst out on the waterfront, as the deliveries come in and out of the factories of Trafford park, and noise from The Trafford road begins to grow, feathered residents of the nearby basins are flexing their webbed feet , attending to cygnets and goslings all and pondering the really important issues of the day,
