Passport, ticket, money
Camera and meds
We’re going to the sea
Excitement to spread

Camera and meds
Looking forward to fun
On a different bed
Holiday and action

We’re going to the sea
Or could be the Alps
As long as we are free
Not scratch our scalp

Excitement to spread
Experience new culture
We’re going ahead
Sunshine and wide azure

Looking forward to fun
Family and friends
When we dance and spun
Wish it never ends

On a different bed
Exotic food and drinks
As long as we’re fed
Pyramid and Sphinx

Holiday and action
Swimming and climbing
Fun!

TELL ME A TALE IN 120 WORDS – Why you love, or dislike, the holiday season

HTTP3d3dy5pbWFnZXNidWRkeS5jb20vaW1hZ2VzLzEyLzIwMTMvMDMvaGFwcHktaG9saWRheXMtbGlnaHRpbmctdHJlZS5naWYlog

Holiday season I’ve been waiting for
Can’t wait to get out of the door
What the prophets promised
Got to be the finest
A sublime but heroic discipline
I’m sure my mind will broaden
Where I could fly in the sky
All my energy will multiply
Love star gazing with the angels
They’re as sweet as caramels
No limits set, tears in my eyes
Can’t wait, time for goodbyes
Stealing this wonder, just be patient
So positive, my mood is buoyant
Like jigsaw with bits and pieces
Bounces like a ball, with all the fuzz
Great holiday period for me
Got to be ready for my seasonal spree
And I can’t wait to experience it
Being as romantic as moonlit

Holiday in Hamburg, part 1

Hello everyone! Hope you’re all fine. We’ve just got back from our five-day trip in Hamburg. Hamburg, a major port city in northern Germany, is connected to the North Sea by the Elbe River. It’s crossed by hundreds of canals, and also contains large areas of parkland. Near its core, Inner Alster lake is dotted with boats and surrounded by cafes.

Here’s the view from our room.

We walked along the Alster lake.

Here are the main train station and the theatre.

Here’s me in front of the town hall. The city’s central Jungfernstieg boulevard connects the Neustadt (new town) with the Altstadt (old town), home to landmarks like 18th-century St. Michael’s Church.

We went to see the International Maritime Museum. There’s a huge collection of model ships, art, uniforms & photographs in Hamburg’s oldest preserved warehouse.

Sunset from our room.

Last but not the least, our hamburger in Hamburg.

Ten Things of Thankful

10 Days of Heat: Beach life (Day 5)

Day-5-2017

 

Beach life is such fun
With friends and family
Lying in the sun
Lovely day to be free

With friends and family
Children mess around
Want some shopping spree
Sand is their fairground

Lying in the sun
Don’t forget the sun cream
Dizzy as she spun
Splashing by the stream

Lovely day to be free
Lovers say sweet things
Wish they were in Bali
See what life springs*

* Created by C. G. V. Lewis, the Quadrilew is a form of quatrain poem with an abab rhyming scheme, repeating lines, and contains an alternating syllable structure.

In the first verse, the poet may either start with a five or six syllable line. If the choice is five then the ‘sounding’ syllable count is (and opposite if the count is six):

VERSE ONE,
Line 1, 5 syllables.
Line 2, 6 syllables.
Line 3, 5 syllables.
Line 4, 6 syllables.

VERSE TWO,
Line 1, (which is a REPEAT of line 2 of the FIRST verse) has 6 syllables.
Line 2 new line of 5 syllables
Line 3 new line of 6 syllables
Line 4 new line of 5 syllables.

VERSE THREE,
Line 1, (which is a REPEAT of line 3 of the first verse) has 5 syllables.
Line 2 new line of 6 syllables.
Line 3 new line of 5 syllables.
Line 4 new line of 6 syllables.

VERSE FOUR,
Line 1, (which is a REPEAT of line 4 of the first verse) has 6 syllables.
Line 2 new line of 5 syllables.
Line 3 new line of 6 syllables.
Line 4 new line of 5 syllables.

If the first line of verse one has 6 syllables then the pattern is
Verse 1, 6565,
Verse 2, 5656,
Verse 3, 6565,
Verse 4 5656: (the rhyme pattern still being abab.)

If wishing to create a longer poem then the next verse (5) must be a completely fresh set of four lines, these being used as before in the following three verses. Etcetera, etcetera.

Our Austrian Trip

Hello everyone! Just got back from our Austrian holiday and we had a smashing time. We drove to Mittersill, which is around 3 hours away from Munich, passing by St. Johann, Kitzbuhel and other lovely towns and villages.

Spa weekend in Bad Füssing

Hello everyone! Just got back from our wellness weekend in Bad Füssing, which is famous for its thermal waters. In an area of outstanding natural beauty, it offered us a wide choice of events, wellness facilities, exercise programmes and activities. There was also a summer festival in their park so we really had a great time.
