Absolutely one of my favourite things to do on holiday is to wander around a place. Not necessarily with anywhere in particular in mind or, if I do, no pre-set route. Just the idea that we will see something cool on the way.
Up until recently that had become a problem but now our children are a bit older, and if we can keep them interested, they will walk for a big chunk of a day. Obviously this has it's limits (usually about 2PM!) but it is also good to remember that we are supposed to be enjoying ourselves and some nice quiet relaxing time is no bad thing either.
Just wander and see what there is to see.
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.
First up, Seoul in December is absolutely completely bloody freezing! It also means the weather can be a bit iffy. However, when it is nice, it is really nice. Clear blue skies and that crisp freshness that I love.
First up was a wander on the North side of the city as it appeared to us. Hanok houses were the first item on the agenda. These, wooden houses used to cover Korea apparently, until the Government knocked most of them down to make room for the usual Asian tower blocks.
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.
