In Memory Of 9/11

Through Open Lens

F/16.0, 30.0, ISO 160.

We Will Never Forget 9/11.

Interesting Fact: On clear nights, the lights can be seen from over 60 miles (97 km) away, visible in all of New York City and most of suburban Northern New Jersey and Long Island. The lights can also be seen in Fairfield County, Connecticut, as well as Westchester, Orange, and Rockland counties in New York. The beams have been clearly visible as far north as the terrace at Century Country Club in Purchase, New York, from at least as far west as western Morris County, in Flanders, New Jersey, at least as far east as the barrier beach of Fire Island in Suffolk County, New York on Long Island, and as far south near Trenton, New Jersey in nearby Hamilton.

Venice

Alex's Planet in Pictures

If you’ve been keeping up with my previous posts you’ll have seen that I recently travelled to Venice for a week. Heres a break down of what I got up to every day with links to some earlier blog posts that include a little bit more information about each activity.

Day One: Parco San Giuliano, boat ride

After spending the evening before travelling and getting settled in my hotel, I decided to take the first day easy and headed on over to San Giuliano Park where I had lunch and sat by the waters edge looking over at Venice. I then took a short boat ride with my friend and one of the locals and explored the bay area a little while.

Day Two: St Marks Square + Parco delle Rimembranze

Since it was my first time in Venice, I thought it’d be good to see the most popular spot…

Two years ago I went to Birka, close to Stockholm, It was the first time I was going to a Viking Island and I was very excited, I took a boat it took one hour aproxemetely.

Onwards & Upwards – Doha, Qatar

Exactly a year ago, I arrived in Doha. I was excited & nervous which I think is pretty normal for someone who has just moved to a new city or country. The last year has had its fair share of ups & downs, but overall it has been the best year of my life. I feel like I am in such a good space – I love my job, I love living here, I love my new lifestyle. I also love how even after a year, everything still feels new & like an adventure. I have compiled a list of things that I’ve noticed or encountered over the last year which make me giggle.20190328_161344Most people assume I am Australian.

Really? Could you not have chosen any other nation?

People are surprised that I’m from Africa & I’m white.

“Why are you white?” – Well gee, I honestly don’t know.

UK Road Trip, Part 3: Wales

The Travel Architect

Dydd da!

So if you’ve been following along for a little while, you know that the Wales portion of our trip started out with some death threats and divorce declarations adventure.  But climbing Crib Goch up Mount Snowden wasn’t the only thing we got up to in Wales.  It wasn’t even the main thing… just the deadliest.

Rather, Wales was all about castles.  Castles, castles, castles!  But before I get to that, I’ll catch you up on my experiences with the Welsh language.  As you may recall, I made some effort to learn a little Welsh before our departure.  I won’t say I regret it, because I never regret learning the language of a country I’m visiting.  Rather, I’ll say I didn’t much need it.  I was diolch-ing and bore da-ing my way all over north Wales, but that’s about the extent of it.  The husband and…

UK Road Trip, Part 2: The Peak District

The Travel Architect

If I were forced to use just one word to describe our entire UK road trip, it would be this:

Sheep.

That’s right.  Sheep.  Not castlesor curriesor funny place names or even cycling, though those things did factor heavily into our travels.  But starting in the Peak District, it seemed to be all sheep, all the time.

But I’m getting ahead of myself.  Let me start by saying that this portion of the trip was largely dedicated to cycling and hiking, so that’s what we did.

Newark (56)

After saying goodbye to the husband’s family and departing Newark, we drove to the Peak District, the UK’s first national park.  We made a quick stop in the town of Bakewell to gorge on Bakewell pudding and Bakewell tart, checking off two more items on our What to Eat Where list.  I wasn’t surprised to find that the husband and…
