10 Days of Heat: Diving into the deep end (Day 4)

Day-4-2017animaatjes-peace-13841

Who will you make peace with?
Is it wrong to search my soul?
So I know what indeed is my role
When I wonder deep down its meaning
And forgiveness I am begging
When I pushed the cobwebs of lies
And each one has his lows and highs
Is it wrong to find atonement?
When there was a creepy silent?
For all who I’ve offended
Out with the truth blurted
For all who are suffering
And the tension it brings
For all who are in pain
Like being in chains
What’s clear is I want peace
All misgivings to decrease

float

snorkelling under the sea
deep silence of nature
admiring life down under
fishes and corals
sharing experience
happy with
you!

Our Malta experience 2

According to Wikipedia: Malta is an archipelago in the central Mediterranean between Sicily and the North African coast. It’s a nation known for historic sites related to a succession of rulers including the Romans, Moors, Knights of Saint John, French and British. It has numerous fortresses, megalithic temples and the Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum, a subterranean complex of halls and burial chambers dating to circa 4000 B.C.

Sharing with you some of the street scenes in Malta.

as well as water scenes.

We had some of the wonderful sunset experience.

We’ve joined a cruise to Gozo, Camino and Blue Lagoon. But as you could see, it was a windy day and we had quite a rough voyage.

Then, we had a three-hour bus tour around Gozo.

Sharing with you some of the food we’ve had on this holiday. I’ve had fish and seafood and Him Indoors has had burgers, steak and chips.

and of course, our drinks.

All in all, we really had a smashing time! Cheers!

Driving to Britain

Once a year we drive to Britain. We usually stay the night in Maastricht and then carry on driving to Calais, take the ferry to Dover and drive to the Midlands. We visit Him Indoors’ parents for the week, as well as my brother and family. HRH the son and K usually come. On the way to Britain, our car is full of some beers from Bavaria and boxes of wines. On the way back, we have to fill the car with Him Indoors’ British supplies – HP sauce, Worchester sauce, cheddar cheese, salt and vinegar crisps, malt vinegar, Branston pickles and black tea.

The time we went to Bali and saw this
Sun shining, big pond of water lilies
Mountains around us, this is such a bliss
Butterflies and bees hovering with ease
Not too hot, enjoying afternoon’s breeze
Walking along the pond, holding my hands
Looking at each other’s eyes with a tease
And we said this is such a fairyland
Like a prince charming, you gave me a kiss
Bali with water lilies, you are missed*
