Monday Morning Blues – Prickly Pears For Sale, Sarande in Albania

In 2017 I paid my second visit to Albania, arriving by ferry from Corfu to Sarande and then taking a bus up to Tirana.

Monday Morning Blues – Lyme Regis in Dorset, UK

This weekend we ventured westwards from London to Dorset. Luckily Storm Arwen bypassed us most of the time, even though one tree did come down and block one of the central thoroughfares. This is a picture of the very nice pub that we had our lunch in on Saturday.

Monday Morning Blues – On The Inca Trail in Peru

Flash back 19 years(!) and I was trekking to Machu Picchu. What a wonderful reward the tortuous climb up to Dead Woman’s Pass in the Andes provided.

Today’s picture comes from my first trip outside the U.K. since February 2020. Nancy is about 90-minutes by train from Paris and has some beautiful squares and stunning architecture.
