The next day we headed to explore the beautiful coast town of Lindos. When you think of a traditional Greek town, you picture Lindos. The white buildings, the clear water, the sandy beaches and the steep hills. It’s all there. We wandered through the streets when we first arrived, and I instantly fell in love with the cobblestone paths. No cars can drive through the roads, so everyone walks or rides donkeys. Yes, donkeys. We happened to see a man leading some donkeys through the paths. It surprised me how well the donkeys could balance on the steep paths, because I almost fell a few times.There is absolutely no way I would have trusted a donkey. We then headed down to the beach and wandered as far as we could into the water without getting our shorts wet. We then headed to visit Seven Springs, this beautiful little area of the island where the springs are clean enough to drink. I also found my new favorite mode of transportation. Readers, meet my horse Jewel. She’s so pretty, just look at her. Awe. The ride back to the resort took us through these really beautiful mountain roads, and we even passed this amazing mansion that was supposed to Mussolini’s home. It was awesome.
Fantastic shot! You look like you are just really, really enjoying yourself, must have been a trip of a lifetime!

This picture was taken at Jerome, Idaho (USA) looking at the snake river canyon at sunset.

Beautiful shots! Looks to be amazing country through there!

I always smile when I see new “toe” photos on your website.
Sights from all around the world….with that signature barefoot or toe.
Such an interesting and unique idea!
I was so excited when I arrived in Kauai.
A few days later, while I was walking on the beach, I laughed and took a photo of my sandy feet (thinking of you).
But then, uh-oh.
After a few days of snorkeling and swimming, I ended up in a local emergency room.
Something was seriously wrong with the big toe on my right foot.
Long story short, I came out of the emergency room with no toenail, some antibiotics, gauze, tape, and instructions that said I could not go back into the water for at least a week.
Yep. Like it or not, the rest of my vacation was going to revolve around my big toe.
So, as I was sitting watching the palm trees on a warm tropical night…..I took a dimly-lit photo of my nicely bandaged toe lounging by the pool (unable to get in).
I will always remember this trip as my “Big Toe Vacation.” L
Great story and it looks like you made the most of it, good going!

Here’s one with a nautical theme. It was taken on the Sliema to Valletta ferry. And I’m wearing my favourite pair of Birkenstock sandals. Happy days….
Good shot! Land ho! : )
David and I had a nice day together yesterday. We went to church, then to eat at a restaurant on the bay where we can sit, relax, and enjoy the view. Life is way to short, so any chance I can, I take time to enjoy with my husband. On our walk back to the car we noticed that someone had filled the fountain with soap and the kids were enjoying playing with the bubbles. David snapped this picture of me and I thought I would share it with you all.
Might as well have fun with it

Croatia is beautiful with many historical sites, scenic coastline, and wonderful people. I highly recommend a vacation there…off-season to avoid the crowds and heat of summer.
Nice shot, good looking sandals!

I was leaving the office of a client here in Brno, Czech Republic and noticed these flowers behind one of their neighboring business’s buildings and thought I’d take a few pics with my mobile phone. As I got my feet into this one, I thought you might like to have it for your blog.

I have been out again, gallivanting around Hong Kong but still on the water.
It is true but embarrassing to say that after 27yrs here I have never been to the famous Floating Jumbo restaurant.
We had reservations for the Top Deck, which is located on the top floor of the Jumbo which great views and alfresco dining.
Wonderful shot! Yes, it is surprising how many of us do not visit the interesting things in our own cities!

I’m somewhat of a vintage junkie. I adore all things vintage and antique. It’s not just the style and the look, it’s the history behind it. To me things that are vintage have a story to tell and that makes them that much more appealing. As a writer, naturally I love stories.
Anyway, in the hours I’ve spent perusing Pinterest, I’ve come across some awesome vintage ads and photo shoots that not only emphasize a style I dig, but also represent a time in history I enjoy.
What a great find! That certainly was an era where even the ordinary was elegant!

I had clicked this Pic while I was traveling back to Mumbai from Delhi … boarded a train with waiting list with no seats to sit, so it was a standing journey or sitting somewhere adjusted with passengers .
Train halt at a bridge near Surat(Gujarat) . I have got my Canon 550D so thought to get some self pics of my Foot …
Looks like you got a pretty good standing spot!

I joined a photography group on Facebook this week. This week’s theme is…..Feet!
My original models were not game for having their twinkle toes taken by me so they hot-footed away from the breakfast table before I could grab my camera. My Dearest (older) Son, sweetie-pie that he is, offered his feet for my viewing pleasure He doesn’t normally offer to model for me.
The Lost in the Details theme from the Weekly Photo Challenge was still fresh in my mind so I took it from this angle to see how it would look. I took a couple of shots, this was the one I was happiest with, which I’ll also be posting in the group in a little while:
Nice shot, I am sure the group was impressed!

I had a fever from the flu and went on a spontaneous 1.5 hr walk all over campus to cool down. In this picture I’m on my way to the mausoleum where the Stanford family is buried.
Nice shot, you must be pretty tough to go out and about with a fever!

Ailsa’s travel theme this week is bridges. Being from Cork, everyday I cross many bridges. Apparently there are 29 in the city and 42 in the surrounding area. A lot of my photos are taken from bridges rather than of them, but here are a few from my travels.
