Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge : Blue and Yellow

Cee’s challenge this week is the post some photos in a blue and yellow theme.

On a recent walking holiday in Italy, we took a well deserved break one day (from the early mornings and late nights!) and went to visit an old town called Bolzano.   We were taken on a ‘guided’ tour of the old buildings in the town by a guide who must have been on her first job, as she had very little information on the town, except for what was contained in a little one page leaflet!   A lot of us got bored after a short while, and veered off to window shop – a much more interesting pastime!

Look at the bling we found:

And the prices of each piece were thankfully way out of our price bracket!

And I love the different colours of the houses along the narrow streets.

Walking with Lion (cubs).

While travelling in Zimbabwe, we visited Antelope Park, which runs a programme called ALERT – African Lion and Environmental Research Trust, where orphaned lions are cared for, and may eventually be released back into the wild.    We had the most fantastic experience of going for a walk in the bush with these 8 month old cubs, and their handlers.  These cubs look upon the handlers as their ‘parents’ and respond to their commands, and before we went out on the walk, we were given a talk on the ‘do’s and dont’s’ of walking with wild animals.

It was a pretty daunting list..Do Not Panic…Stand your Ground (Really – with a lion chasing me?)   Do Not Run… but once out in the bush, it was all good, they are pussycats really – of the large variety!  We were even able to pose for photos with the cubs, with the handlers keeping a close eye at all times
