Vacation and Our Beautiful World

Life is Singapore is pretty good, through out the whole trip, I didn't have jet-lag until Singapore, and now I know why, when I started my tour in Italy, Germany, The Netherlands and England, I was a tourist, I wanted to see things, do things, so we got up early, do what tourist do and then back to the hotel by 8-9 PM, here in Singapore, I don't really need to do the tourist thing, I just wake up as and when I like, eat, and then sleep again, arrange meeting with family and friends. In Singapore, meeting means eating. So my life here is pretty simple, just eat and sleep and then wake up and eat and go to sleep again, I don't even know what day is it, that's what you called a real vacation.

I do remember the word this week at....

 

is

TEXTURE


this photo was taken in Rome....


Clare and I was in Rome, day one of our Europe tour, walked a 12 hour day that day, through many of these narrow streets.....


end of the day, we walked by River Tiber to get back to the apartment we stayed in Rome, I just had to sit down to rest my feet.... if you watched James Bond movie "Spectrum", this might be familiar. The banks of River Tiber is where the car race was filmed in the movie.


 so this is what I saw by the steps of River Tiber..... I couldn't help but snap a few pictures after stretching out my hands to feel its texture....


Stop by Our Beautiful World for more TEXTURE from the team.

Sorry for your jet lag. Still, like you said, it is a good vacation when you don't know what day it is. Your pictures of Rome are full of rough and smooth texture. Great word prompt and better pictures.
