Solo To London

I didn’t plan to put up a Photo Friday post today – mainly because yesterday, I said “Goodbye” to CAM as he headed off to the UK, Portugal and Ireland for his first solo backpacking trip in Europe (at the grand old age of 16!!). For me, this was as big as his first day Read the Rest…

The Great Wall Of China

Once you heard we were going to visit China you knew there’d be a Great Wall photo (or twenty). Let’s just get this over and done with, shall we? We opted to take a tour all the way out to Simatai – a three hour drive from Beijing – to hike the Great Wall. It Read the Rest…

Exercising Baboons

  We first “discovered” outdoor exercise equipment such as that in the photo above in Santiago, Chile. My kids were immediately hooked on what they refer to as big kid playground stuff. We’ve seen it in parks, playgrounds and on streets in Chile, Peru, Argentina, Thailand and now, in China. We were walking back to Read the Rest…

First Chinese Toilet Signs

I have to admit that we had a bit of a drought in humorous toilet signage after leaving Bangkok. I was sad that this little photo-blog series would have to come to an end. But folks at Rock and Wood International hostel in Shanghai saved the day with the following on their main floor public Read the Rest…

Origami In Hue

Just inside the square of the main palace at the Citadel or Imperial City in Hue, Vietnam, there are a pair of massive bronze urns filled with rain water. Unsurprisingly, as with fountains and other such water features in any city, people throw loose change into the urns for good luck. When CAM peeked into Read the Rest…

Thai Motorway Toilet Sign

Spotted at a motorway gas station on the way into Bangkok. There were regular male/female toilet signs posted but some humorist had put this up on the wall just by the entrance to the men’s restroom. This collection of whacky toilet signs is building quite nicely. You can check out the set at WanderMom Toilet Read the Rest…

Bomb Shells

Munitions as decor outside Craters, a local restaurant, in Phonsavan, Laos. And outside the local tourist information office. A legacy of a secret war that’s still affecting the people of Laos.

A Smile Worthy Of A Princess

While in Phonsarvan in North-Eastern Laos, we took a day trip to visit the Plain of Jars, a megalithic archeological site. The tour also included a stop at a Hmong village where we met these kids. I brought a bunch of stickers with me on our trip so that I had something (not candy and Read the Rest…

Even More Toilet Signs

Words fail me. A standard “Peeping Tom” sign. At least with this one you had some indication of which gender was intended to use the W.C.! These, by the way, were found in a cheery little cafe in remote Chiang Khong, Thailand. Which just goes to show that such gems can be found literally anywhere Read the Rest…
