Travel theme: Connections

Was inspired by one of the blogs I follow – “Where’s my backpack? by Alisha – and her post “Travel Theme: Connections”. So here is my take on Connections from our travels.

The connection of team mates while on a sports tour to Indonesia.

  1. Great pictures! I’ve seen so many pictures of Tower Bridge via the “Connections” thread, clearly people are way more inspired by London than I am. I guess one takes the familiar for granted. Hopefully I can travel more and take everyone else’s “familiar” for granted!
