For today’s Sky Watch Friday I decided to post seven pictures from the seven overseas trips I did this year.
This was March in Levi, so beautiful, so surreal and for me, so cold. After looking at the snow and the temperatures,I totally understand the sauna craze in Finland. You need good central heating and sauna if March looks like this!
Fihalhohi Island, Maldives
What do I say about Maldives, I truly loved it, the blue skies, the white sands and the many shades of blue in the water. It was sheer bliss.
Amman Citadel, Jordan
The giant hand in this picture is said to be a fragment of the statue of Hercules that used to stand at the citadel in Amman! Going by the size of the hand, it must have been a gigantic structure! When I visited Jordan in May, it had lovely blue skies and a mild weather!
Sala Khao Yai, Thailand
I have made two beautiful trips to Thailand this year, so far! This is a resort named Sala Kaho Yai in the Khao Yai region, which is 2.5 hours from Bangkok. We stopped there for lunch. To me it looked like a beautiful place for couples and honeymooners!
Halo Round the Sun, Grand Palace, Bangkok
I witnessed the halo round the sun at the Grand Palace in Bangkok, on my second visit this year. The more I see of Thailand, the more I like it.
Tiger’s Nest, Bhutan
Then I visited Bhutan and in this picture you see the amazing Tiger’s Nest perched impossibly on a cliff’s edge in Paro. The hike to the monastery was also quite memorable. The clouds you see, actually poured on us for a while!
Hong Kong at Night
Hong Kong was the cutest trip of this year as I took my niece and my daughter on their first trip abroad! Photography mainly took a back seat but there were rare opportunities like this to get a few pictures as well.
So, these are my 7 pictures from the 7 overseas trips in 2014 for today’s Sky Watch. Hope you enjoyed watching them!
I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
