I finally got a small taste of the African continent! 

Once again it has been a busy year of travels. I’ve been back to some old favourites and added some new European countries to my map. And, I’ve finally dipped my toes in the African continent with an intensive two-week trip across Namibia.

What an amazing landscape!

This week I completed six years of regular Weekly blogs. 

I’ve tried to keep the posts mixed up: nature, landscape, architecture, sculpture and of course people  – portraits, music, costume, and dance – from seventeen countries on five continents.

One of the joys of travel is the people you meet.

In Hereford Cathedral I spent more time than usual in England - and more time than usual in churches and cathedrals. (06March2015)

In Hereford Cathedral
I spent more time than usual in England in the last year or so – and more time than usual in churches and cathedrals.

As always, I am grateful to my ever-patient husband, who ends up in some distant, wet places with me – and often carries half my gear.

It has been a pleasure sharing some of my adventures on my Ursula’s Weekly Wanders PhotoBlog, and I’m always thrilled to have your company.

Many thanks for your comments, notes, and emails.

Sometimes you get into more interesting places when you travel with a group; photographic groups have certainly got me into situations I wouldn’t have found by myself. I am thankful to the wonderful group-leaders I have travelled with – they add enormous value to the travel experience.
