‘Around the World in Colour’ for Ailsa’s Travel Theme

Ailsa has requested an injection of colour to brighten up the “low light” winter landscape of the northern hemisphere. Let’s go travelling around the world with a few of my brightest photos, to cheer your Monday.

We’ll start off with the gaudy colours of a country market in Peru, on our way back to Cusco after seeing the wonders of Machu Picchu.


Such colourful wagon wheel artwork found in in Sarchi, Costa Rica, is bound to lift anyone’s spirits.


This lovingly cared for garden at Lanhydrock House in Cornwall,Β  was a real work of art.


A boatload of flowers at Polperro, a Cornish fishing village, where the roads were so narrow that cars were banned from them, really brightened up our long walk from the car park to the harbour.


In Singapore’s Little India, the Veeramakaliamman Hindu temple was painted in a great variety of colours.


Our hotel in Hawaii, had an exquisite Koi pond, which really shimmered with beautiful colours.


Two identically coloured parrots in the Cairns Kuranda Bird Sanctuary, must surely have been twins.


Feathers don’t come much brighter than this cute little Rainbow Lorikeet.


At the end of a relaxing day at the beach in Punta Cana, a little colourful exercise is a very bright way to whittle the waistline. πŸ˜‰


I hope you’ve enjoyed my vibrantly coloured and cheerful images. Have a great week.

  1. Well chosen Sylvia you’ve got an eye for all the colours of the rainbow here … love the market in Peru and the mosaic pond with Koi .
    Have to admit never tried multi hoola hooping… so high five to you on keeping them on the go πŸ˜‰

  2. Beautiful injection of colour these Sylvia, perfect for this grey, November day (although the sun did shine earlier!). I knew that one with the boat filled with flowers had to be from here, straightaway πŸ™‚ xx

  3. I LOVED this tour Sylvia. We are headed to Peru in June so the first photo is extra special. Good job on the hula hooping. I think you can enter the World Championship hula hooping event. πŸ™‚

  4. These are gorgeous Sylvia! Yes, it is so gray and white here in MN. Color has escaped us so glad to see your beautiful shots! I am heading to Bolivia tomorrow. Can’t believe it after all this that I’m really going. My dad and I were supposed to go a year ago, had tickets booked and you know the rest. Now he is cancer free at 72 and we are going, even after the Bolvian consulate LOST MY PASSPORT last week and gave me a scare not finding it until Thursday after having it for two months. It has been a struggle to get to this trip! Stay tuned!

    • That’s so exciting for you and your dad. I’m so happy that he’s now able to travel with you again. Thank goodness your passport turned up again in time. What a fright you must have had! Safe travels, and have lots of fun. I look forward to seeing your photos. I know they’ll be spectacular. πŸ™‚
