Frog in blue jeans

A very cute, stylish, but poisonous, Blue Jeans Frog snapped having a rest on a tree trunk on our travels in Costa Rica a few years ago.

Bahia Palace, Marrakech

A couple of years ago we spent a wonderful long weekend discovering the delights of Marrakech.  Bahia Palace, with it’s exquisite architecture and decorations was an oasis of peace away from the madness of Jamaa El-Fnaa (which we loved, by the way). It is most definitely worth a visit. These are just a few examples of its gorgeousness!

Three Views of Phewa Lake, Pokhara, Nepal

You can take a peaceful boat ride from the town of Pokhara which is strung along the shore of lovely Phewa Lake. If you wish the boats will drop you at the little island where the Taal Barahi Temple stands.
