Holiday photos part 3

47 comments


After another long week of working the nightshift i have not had time to do anything in the garden so i thought i would post a few more scenic pictures of my recent holiday. Hope you enjoy the views.

I’m not sure where this is but its either Switzerland or Italy.

Could be lake Garda, but again not sure..

This is definitely the unforgettable Stelvio Pass, i still can not believe i went this high up a mountain in a car!

Lake Garda

Stopped off for a quick shot of Monaco before we tried to drive round the Grand Prix track.

St Tropez

A thirsty DSBSS ASBO SOFA or Goose in Barcelona

Barcelona Courtyard.

Bruge

What a lovely view on the ferry on the last leg of our journey. No not me ! The sunset!

I've been looking forward to another blog of your photos of places you can't remember where they are... Lol.

excellent.. I am not disappointed ... wonderful pics :o)

Lovely photos, including the last one !!

29 Oct, 2011

 

Thanks everyone... I do have a lot of photographs of this holiday, but i've tried to keep them scenic rather than the ones with tins of spam and a shower cap on my head on a mountain side. Terra yes i'm at it again with my 'i haven't a clue where this is' pictures. I do like the sunset on the last one too Cinderella, i've surprised myself that I've put one of myself on there as i hate having my photograph taken.

Aah! Bill, I LOVE Bruges - one of my favourite cities in the world - did you get a chance to explore? I can't understand why you look so happy to be going home when you've just had such an incredible holiday!

29 Oct, 2011

 

Goodnight Joanella you made me smile too lol..

29 Oct, 2011

 

We wanted to stay there overnight Gattina so we tried to drive from Barcelona straight to Bruges but we didn't quite make it and stayed somwhere (yes i dont know where lol) so we only had a few hours before the ferry. We got there around 430pm when all the shops and places were shutting,so we walked around the town for a couple of hours. My friend wants to go back there for a couple of days. I wasn't happy to go home but we'd just been doing a silly video for something to look back at, but instead of having it on video he'd taken pictures instead lol

29 Oct, 2011

 

Great pics of your holiday. I enjoyed looking through them.

30 Oct, 2011

 

What a fantastic holiday that must have been! Love the first pic!

30 Oct, 2011

 

If you can include a Sunday when you go back to Bruges, Bill, there's an amazing market that covers almost an acre, full of antique and second-hand stalls. (Don't know whether that sort of thing floats your boat!) Fabulous place.

30 Oct, 2011

 

You saw some wonderful sights. Thanks for sharing them :o)

30 Oct, 2011
