Faces On Friday - Hong Kong - Schoolgirls

In China again for Faces on Friday but in Hong Kong, where the children wear very formal uniforms. These young girls were very happy to model for me!

Faces On Friday - Xian - China - People Watching

People Watching in Xian
The weather was cold but sunny in Xian when I was there and there were plenty of opportunities for people watching. You will notice there is a contrast in the style of dress between the generations.

Taxi anyone?


These young ladies wanted me to take their photo and also wanted photos with me!

Playing Cards

Not sure how to tackle this!
Watching the fountain display
I cannot get the hang of  how this moves!
Crossing Patrol

These photos are all taken from my archives of which I have many and are from my trip to Xian in March 2010 with David, sadly for many reasons I have not got round to sharing via blogging before now but hopefully the date is irrelevant and you will still find them interesting.

Travel Tales has always been an online scrapbook of my life adventures for myself as well as for all the lovely people that follow me, so I hope you will not mind me going back in time for awhile while I catch up.

Mudeford Quay - Dorset - England

The Bank Holiday on Monday January 2nd 2017 was a glorious day, cold and clear. I was staying with my daughter and husband in Christchurch for New Year Celebrations so decided it was a perfect day to visit one of my favourite places in the area. I have many happy memories of Mudeford that have been made over many years, first with my parents when I was a child, then later with David, continuing when our own family were growing up. Now I am making new ones!

I was last there in the summer and was amazed last week to find it even busier than back then. Everyone was enjoying the fact that the weather was so good, perfect for blowing away those holiday festivity cobwebs.

 I hope you enjoyed the photos I shared today.
