Sep 04, 2016 – [Sunday] WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Mirror

Isle of Seil, Scotland, taken on September 3, 2016

As I was waiting for the bus to come pick me up near Ellenabeich on the Isle of Seil after a great hike yesterday, I noticed that the bus shelter was actually a mirror that reflected the road, the hill, and the cottage up ahead. It was getting chilly so I was glad that the bus came soon after!

Jul 13, 2016 – [Wednesday] Travel Favs: On the road

Isle of Skye, Scotland, taken on July 1, 2016

The photos from Skye keep coming because it is just such a photogenic place! Isle of Skye means “the isle of mist”, and misty it was (occasionally) when our group took a tour around the island with Stuart from Misty Isle Tours. Driving over hills and valleys and passing by little villages on the road was certainly a good way to experience this wonderful Scottish isle!

Jan 16, 2016 – [Saturday] Letters of the Alphabet: Z(ig) z(ag) in Z(hangjiajie)

Zhangjiajie, China, taken on August 11, 2010

I’ve always been fascinated by the snaking, zig-zaggy roads that lead to the top of the mountains in Zhangjiajie. We took the cable car up when we visited and that was how I was able to take this photo. Maybe the engineers had aesthetics in mind as they designed these roads because they certainly were quite magnificent!

Feb 23, 2015 – [Monday] The Places I Called Home: Curve

Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, taken on November 1, 2011

Louvain-la-Neuve was the little place that I called home once in a while when I had to travel to my partner university during my PhD program, and a cosy little home it was. On this day, I went to Lake Louvain-la-Neuve again and this was the starting point of my walk. This curve caught my attention inexplicably as it was so…aesthetically pleasing. It was quite a grey day though, the skies overcast with impending rain.
