The TravelThirst into some contest action! Sensing and showing the world this time through colors.
Thanks to Linda Wainwright (Island Momma) and Aaron Cruz (elatlboy) for nominating our site in order to participate in this great competition called “Capture the Colour“, held by TravelSupermarket. Giving away some great prizes for the sake of travel…let’s keep our fingers crossed and our senses on alert! In any case, this visual journey refreshing my memories is totally worth the try.
So, now time to leave words aside and focus only in sight. Scroll down and let your senses go live now, with a few photography from our travels. Enjoy!
Great beach times while cruising around southern Caribbean islands, back in 2009. One of the best experiences in travel I’ve had so far, with amazingly diverse landscapes. This was taken in Bonaire, typical contrast between white and blue -respectively from salt production and clear ocean waters. Many of these small beach houses can be seen along the island, used back then for slavery (holding aprox. 20 slaves each in less than 8 squared meters), while they worked on the island’s development.
Fresh and delightful artichokes at a local market, in the picturesque neighborhood of Testaccio, Rome. Have you been? Something not be missed! By yourself or with guidance, you can get to experience a whole new world in such a small place.
Tour Tip 100% recommended: Eating Italy- Food Rome Tours
Christmas night in Prague, wandering around the Vltava river into unknown corners away from the city rush. Just takes a few steps crossing the river and into Mala Strana neighborhood, where the path encounters the Kampa Museum on the riverside. You can watch the boats moving along so quiet and nice, almost like dancing…Prague lets this kind of magic happen. Right there you can visualize a small separate “water road” where boats head the other way, perfectly signposted with this large-scale lamp penguins. Definitely best appreciated at night!
A unique view of the Pyrenees while flying from Vienna to Barcelona. Autumn 2010. No more words needed.
A unique summer sunset recently in Venice, pretty honeymoon-like. It was my very first italian experience, special for plenty of reasons…but all together with this view: don’t tell me isn’t this quite perfect?
Let the competition continue!
And my nominees are: (Hope you haven’t been nominated yet. In such case, excuse the repetition. Thank you!)
