Bordeaux, France, taken on January 2, 2014
I only managed to go on a ride on the BatCub once before I left Bordeaux, and it was a quiet and leisurely ride on the Garonne. In the distance we see Pont Chaban-Delmas while a French flag waves proudly with the wind.
Lucerne, Switzerland, taken on January 11, 2014
There was one moment throughout my travels where I genuine felt that I was heading to nowhere. That morning, the fog in Lucerne was unusually thick, and on the boat towards Weggis, not a thing could be seen ahead of us and I felt as if the vessel was heading towards the entrance to another world. “No destination, but we are together” was how I felt, but I was alone, with no togetherness, drifting into a land of nowhere.
Toronto, Canada, taken on September 8, 2014
An impressive boat was docked by the Toronto harbour, and now that I’ve finished reading The Count of Monte Cristo, I feel like this is exactly the kind of ship that The Pharaon looked like. Ah, the glorious days when Edmond sailed on it…the masterpiece never dies! (See the original photo in colour.)
Bergerac, France, taken on October 2, 2011
The waters of the Dordogne river in southwestern France are quite clear, at least a lot clearer than those of the Garonne 😉 There was not a ripple in the water aside from those awaken by the passing boat, and not a cloud was to be seen in the crisp sky. Such a calm and clear day, perfect for a visit to quiet little Bergerac.
The 6-day trip to Italy with dad has begun, starting with…Venice! This photo was taken on Burano island, a side trip from the main island of Venice. Burano is known for its colourful houses and tranquil atmosphere, especially in the winter season when tourists are exponentially lower than in the summer. Such a lovely place to spend an hour or two, of course also perfect for enjoying a (very warm) mid-winter sunset before heading back to Venice 😉
