One of the places we like to visit, to get into the Christmas feel, is Burnham Market in Norfolk. Unfortunately in 2016 it was raining, but it was still so magical, with all the trees lit up.
I took this photo last year 2016, in the centre of Maidstone in Kent. I love the way the Pumpkin Heads are trying to muscle in on Christmas, but I reckon that full on jumper could see them off any day, with a little help from the Santa Hats 🙂
Florence 2016 – When we left the Pitti Palace, we wanted to see Florence’s Cathedral, the Duomo, before we had to catch our train back to Venice. Many of the photos have been posted before as single posts, but I wanted to add them all together, the photos of The Piazza della Signoria with a copy of Michelangelo’s David are new photos. We didn’t have time to see the real David, but maybe next time. Next and last stop is the Duomo.
Florence 2016, after our lunch, we made our way to a garden that was on my husbands wish list, Boboli Gardens, husband has a thing about gardens, so on our way there, and its quite a walk, I took some photos. I have played around a little with the photos as they were very dark, due to the poor light. Next stop, the gardens.
Last year, 2016, we travelled to Venice, Italy by train, in fact about a dozen trains there and back. The first part of the trip was by Euro Star from London to Brussels, there wasn’t that much to see through the window, and anyway we were moving way too fast. Brussels to Frankfurt was more interesting, and the train had slowed down, just a little, so I could take a few photos through the window. It is quite amazing what you can see, a little different than a car window, so here are just a few shots of what I found interesting. After Frankfurt we changed trains again to take us for an overnight stop in Munich, and a very early morning walkabout of the city……to follow.
While we were waiting for our train at Zurich Train Station, last year 2016, I got a bit bored and when I get bored, out comes the camera. I think it was mainly to try and capture as many dog photos that I could, and then other things got captured between dog photos. Well it kept me amused and out of harms way 🙂
Last year 2016, on our way back from Venice, we stopped over night in Zurich. I was really looking forward to taking some photos of the old part of Zurich. We got up early and went straight out……..into really thick mist……I was so disappointed. It had been years since I last visited Zurich, so I was not going to be thwarted by a bit or rather a lot of mist. We made do with a walk around the hotel, along the river into a riverside park, found a castle like building and a wonderful penknife shop……so not too bad for a misty morning.
