Travelogue

  1. Arme…zing

    Date 10 Jun 2018
    Clouds ove Mt Ararat and Yerevan After only a week in Armenia it has so far left a far different impression than Georgia, which as previously stated hasn’t lived up to expectations (yet!). The people and landscape, while having many similarities, are very different in so many other ways. I…

  2. A Little Further Afield

    Date 03 Jun 2018
    Acropolis Sky Parthenon from the streets of Athens First up we’ve had a five day stop over in Athens where we enjoyed yummy Greek food and a little sightseeing, and we have now left our apartment in Arcos permanently as the logistics just weren’t working for us, so sadly we…

  3. A Brief Interlude

    Date 18 May 2018
    Aspects of Arcos #104 Having spent three weeks in the UK and being so late in posting the photos from that time, I thought a few more Aspects of Arcos, including around the time of the full moon, would make a brief but picturesque interlude before we journey on to the…

  4. Moor from the UK

    Date 11 May 2018
    Salisbury Sky To start with I have to apologise for the tardiness between posts (mainly) because of connectivity issues. To compensate I have included more photos than I normally would. Since the last update we have left the bucolic surroundings of East Anglia and made the trek down to the equally bucolic…

  5. A Change of Climate

    Date 21 Apr 2018
    Lancing Beach Huts and Sky There’s quite a difference between the weather in the UK compared to the south of Spain where so many Brits spend their holiday time or retirement, and having come directly from Arcos and Seville to the south of England we can fully attest to that…

  6. Spring is Sprung

    Date 08 Apr 2018
    Aspects of Arcos #53 This is very late but I’ve finally got around to posting these pics from the tail end of the Malta trip which are actually in Barcelona. And what could be more Barca than Gaudi? Also included though are a few from the Barcelona Cathedral (Cathedral

  7. Holy Gozo (Batman)

    Date 15 Mar 2018
    Gozo Sky Apparently the smaller of the two main Maltese islands, Gozo, has a saying that it’s “the land where time stood still”. Notwithstanding all the new(ish) cars, new apartments, electricity and all the other appurtenances of modern living, it would imply to me that churches are a thing of…

  8. Destinazzjoni: Malta

    Date 07 Mar 2018
    Gnejna Cloud The northern tip of Malta, the southern tip of Gozo and the smallest island of Comino from above As can be deduced from the title, we’re currently in Malta and enjoying the mild temperatures and change in culture. Malta (and its language too) are quite a mix of…

  9. Aspects of Arcos

    Date 21 Feb 2018
    Aspects of Arcos #26 Having made Arcos de la Frontera our home for the next year it is inevitably going to feature prominently in my photographs whilst we’re here, which will be for a lot of the time, so to kick off a new series that I‘m calling “Aspects of Arcos”…

  10. Home … for a while

    Date 07 Feb 2018
    Sunrise and Tree Arcos de la Frontera is the premier pueblo blanco (white village) in Andalucía, Spain … and it’s now our home for the next year! Having gained temporary residency we can come and go without the Schengen Zone time restrictions, and have settled into the apartment which is in a…
