The Journey So Far
Usually it takes me thirty minutes to drive to Oxford,
but on the wing it took thirty hours.
A grounding place this English town for me,
and a stepping stone to others.
St Giles Christmas Fair, Oxford
Within the spire of St Mary's of All Angels, Oxford
Boarding the Eurostar, St Pancras Station, London
The Eiffel Tower from the Tuileries Gardens, Paris
Florist, Rue St Roch, Paris
Parc de Monceau, Paris
Everywhere, from the Place de la Madeleine...
to the Champs Elysees, there is a sense of Christmas spirit.
View from the Jardins des Tuileries
along the Champs Elysees
And above the Seine
Deciding not to join the queue for the Louvre,
because Northern Ireland beckoned.
The river Dun at Cushendun, County Antrim
The Wishing Chair at...
The Giant's Causeway, County Antrim
And now I have wicked bronchitis and am done with sight-seeing in cold and dramatic places while I try to recover.
