We arrived in the early morning. It was very hot. We set off into the interior walking along trails through the tropical forests. We came across secluded pebble beaches and then headed up to the heights.
Sunsets at sea can be very special! This one was off the coast of Australia.
Spending a day or two walking around Sydney is a great experience. We walked along the waterfront and off into the waterside park.
We always try to check out the art galleries. The Sydney Modern Art Gallery had some superb aboriginal art.
Cockatoo Island is a world heritage site situated in Sydney Harbour. You get to it by ferry. It was a major shipyard and also a penal colony. Once completely covered in trees, now a barren piece of post industrial real estate. Very interesting to investigate.
It was all very modern and manicured. We stopped off at a cultural village which was like a plastic replica of a past age coupled with a shopping outlet.
There is so much to see in Rome – starting with the art treasures in the Vatican. While representing some of the poorest people in the world the Catholic Church accumulated a huge wealth of treasures and art. One wonders why?
Apart from the Vatican it seems that every corner has an architectural joy, a historical gem or sculpture.
Rome is an incredibly photogenic city. At night the history comes to life. I enjoyed wandering around taking shots.
The incredible supertrees are to be found in the Marina Bay area. They are massive and fully environmentally sound. The supertrees have solar panels, vertical gardens with self-watering systems. They are magnificent – works of art. So impressive.
They knocked me out!
We took ourselves up to the top of one of the biggest skyscrapers to get a view over the city. I like to get a different perspective on things! The sun was setting and made a nice glow off the water.
