Monday Morning Blues – Lake Ohrid Fisherman, North Macedonia

I visited Lake Ohrid in 2006. The place was legendary for its rare albino peacock, which was living in the grounds of a monastery by the lake. Such was the rarity of the bird that the town of Ohrid contained countless postcards, giftware, posters etc. of the red-eyed beast. We went in search of him, […]

Another extremely local photo again this week as we stay confined to barracks. This one from a walk in my nearby woods featuring bluebells. Join us over on Twitter @wilburstravels for more blue themed photos that aim to disperse the Monday morning blues.

Initially the […]

Monday Morning Blues – Cuban Tree

Monday Morning Blues – Bernina Express, Switzerland

Today’s Monday morning blues picture comes from a fabulous train tour of Italy & Switzerland that I stitched together in 2016. The Bernina Express travelled from Tirano on the Swiss/Italian border up to Chur. A fabulous memory and the perfect antidote for a miserable Monday morning.

Old Havana, Cuba

Monday Morning Blues – Old Havana, Cuba

This week’s ‘blue’ photo comes from my January 2017 visit to Cuba. It was a wonderful trip taking in many cities, but Havana was undoubtedly my favourite. Old Havana is a poor district full of colourful characters going about their daily business and was a fabulous maze of streets that were perfect for just meandering […]
