Two years ago I was in Khiva in Uzbekistan, a truly wonderful walled city on the Silk Route. The minarets and historic buildings are fantastic and the small city has a relaxed vibe. I would love to go again! My photo to beat the Monday Morning Blues comes from inside Khiva’s Kunya-Ark Citadel, and features […]
I took this blue photo in Trinidad de Cuba in January 2017. Cuba is a truly wonderful country to visit – I would love to go again!
Remarkably it is nearly two-years since my epic trip to Turkmenistan & Uzbekistan. My photo today comes from what many consider to be Samarkand’s fourth biggest draw, the awesome Bibi-Khanym Mosque.

I took this photo in June 2019. Travel seems such a far away place at the moment and this memory already seems quite distant…..

Lindy Pyrah will be recounting her nighttime journey through the Western Sahara on […]
This week’s picture comes from a January 18 visit to the Big Apple. An unusual angle but I love the contrast between the green and the blue.
After the entertaining presentation & quiz we held in July, I am very happy to announce our second event on Monday 10th August at 8pm UK time. We are in for a real treat again this time as Lindy Pyrah will be reliving her amazing trip to Mauritania in Saharan West Africa. The adventure culminated […]
I visited the pretty pond that fills on old chalk quarry last week. Legend has it that a woodcutter’s daughter was surprised by a nobleman on a horse as she bathed in the pool. Having failed to lure her to the bank, he rode his horse into the water and caused the girl to move […]
