I love this photo I took of Florence largely because it's not instantly recognisable.
Hercules battling the Nemean lion down by the Arno, a bit too busy to enjoy the view.
Behind, the deceptively simple fa├žade of the Chiese di Ognisannti. This church is filled with Medieval and Renaissance treasures (including the robe wore by St. Francis when he received the stigmata).

Not-So Hidden Corners in Italy

Not-So Hidden Corners in Italy

Of course I start with Florence, the city I fell in love with when I was ten. Wandering towards the Arno, I was so busy looking at all the sights it was easy to miss this spectacular fountain on the corner of a house.

Five Suggestions for Hong Kong

Hong Kong may seem a small island, but there is much to do - far too much for one visit alone. When you need a break from exploring all the shopping and food options, here are five suggestions to add to your to do list.

Travelling to The Peak

5 Suggestions for hong Kong

Simply reaching The Peak on Hong Kong Island is half the fun. Until 1888, the only way there was a three hour ride in a rickshaw; the opening of the Peak Tram saw the travel time reduced to 8 minutes. There is nothing quite sitting in the tram being pulled back into the seat as the tram climbs the impossible inline, which had a gradient from 4 to 27 degrees. A word of advice - arrive early, as the queues can stretch forever. Catching a bus is another option (and a good way to return) which gives quite a sightseeing tour of the exclusive houses and apartments of the Upper and Mid-Levels.

My Morning Friend

There’s nothing quite like the sound of a currawong warbling of a morning. It such a melodious sound, a welcoming start to the day.
In spring many birds visit my balcony with their babies, knowing I will leave some food for their breakfast. The currawongs always give me a thank you song in reply.

Summer in London

Flowers in Kensington Gardens

Having only been to London when the days are short and the sun rarely seen, I was enthralled at the difference in the city under the summer sunshine.

Labelling Corfu

Corfu is a place of contrasts. A brilliant blue sea under blazing sunshine. A centre packed with tourists.
And forgotten mosaics, so delicate.
