Cafés, Bars and Restaurants From Our 2012 Trip.

This week I have put together a collection of photos from the most amazing trip Ray and I went on in 2012. Covering five countries; South Africa, Portugal (including the island of The Azores), England, France (just Paris) and The Netherlands; the following are images of various bars, cafés and eateries from those countries.

Due to our current circumstances, I may be unable to post a blog every week. I will however, try my hardest to update my adventures on a weekly basis. See you again soon!

Lake Parramatta Reserve

Busy busy busy week!  But we managed to fit in a quick photo shoot at one of our favourite local spots before meeting up with some friends for coffee. My apologies for being so terribly late this week. Enjoy these! 🙂

World Buildings

Yet again we failed to go on a photo shoot…this is getting old, I know; however I dug up some lovely photos of buildings from places I have had the fortune of visiting. I know the architectural style of some but not all. I do hope you like the following set. It bought back some wonderful memories for me 🙂

In the Kitchen

Last week proved to be another busy week where it was impossible to go out on a photoshoot. We were going to dig out some old unused photos when I got the idea to walk around our kitchen, again with my mobile phone just like last week at the café, and take some abstract-style photos. I think Ray took a walk around the house and in the garden too.
