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.

  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!
