This is a really cool Millennium project that links the Forth & Clyde Canal with the Union Canal. They used to be linked up until 1933 and this was a landmark project that was supposed to impress.
It is certainly cool and well worth a look see!
One of the problems of travelling in mid-November is that it is the off-season for a reason. The weather can be a bit hit and miss. So it was in Bruges. Although still lovely and not over-run with tourists it was more than a little bit cold, wet and miserable.
However, I did get a stunning lunch and after dinner the weather had cleared sufficiently for me to go for an evening walk with my camera.
Another belated Easter travels post (I have been having 'computer issues' of late).
While down in Shanghai we decided we would have a couple of nights in Suzhou. This is one of the many canal towns around Shangers. It's also one of the many places to call itself the 'Venice of the..' (insert geographical location), although Marco Polo thought it was pretty good! It is famed as the centre of Chinese garden design.
It also appears to be THE place to go to have your wedding photies taken.
I have to say that it is a top little (well, its a huge city, but the old town is quite compact) place.
This will be a blog about my latest shots and what I liked or was trying to do with them
I am a teacher of Economics and have worked in various schools in Europe & Asia. One of the things I love doing is getting out and about with my camera.
