Since my husband has been a travel professional all his working life, we've been lucky enough to visit many countries around the world, even more from cruise ships. I love taking photographs and have amassed a huge number now that digital makes it so easy to keep snapping. So, I'm going to start a new occasional blog series, using photos to inspire creativity. Some will be scenic shots, some might be more quirky, but I hope they might spark an idea for a story, or poem, or just some dreams of far of lands, or even remind us of the beauty in our own country.
I'm beginning with the Caribbean island of Aruba, in the Lesser Antilles, partly because this notice I snapped at the entrance of a little garden came to my attention this morning and I love the sentiments. Hope you can read it as it was rather old and faded.
If anyone is ever looking for professional, personal travel advice or arrangements, by the way, you can find details of my husband's independent business and the company he works with on his website here. Many of my photos are on his site!
