Weekly Travel Theme: Glow

Where’s My Backpack’s weekly travel theme challenge this week is “Glow”.

Lots of things glow – candles/fire, neon, sunrise and sunsets, etc. Here’s a few photos from my travel archives.

Plunge pool at the Roman Baths, Bath. It glows due to the phosphorescence of the minerals in the water

The moon glows in the night sky over Brussels

Checking the ale, Alexander Keith’s Brewery, Halifax

Sunshine on the harbour waters, Halifax

Late afternoon winter sun makes the ruins of Rievaulx Abbey glow


I love to travel, take photos, read. I love Coronation Street, Doctor Who, Dexter, True Blood. I enjoy museums, galleries, shopping, sightseeing and food when I travel. I have a husband and a great family. I live by the Atlantic ocean in a small city which I love.

  1. Lovely examples of “glow.” I love that green pool in Bath. We have some mineral baths (naturally warm water) in our area but they are not as pretty and need major repairs…

Travel and Me

I am unapologetically a tourist. I love to take photos and I enjoy writing about my travels. I love to sightsee, and to wander in museums and galleries. I love cathedrals and churches - the architecture and usually, the art, can astonish me. History fascinates me and architecture draws my camera out time and again.

I'm not an intrepid or adventurous traveler like some, nor does a sunny, sandy resort or luxurious cruise ship attract me.

I envision this blog as a place for my travel memories, my travels as they occur (Yay for laptops and free wifi!), or for chat about travel related things like books, movies, tv shows, websites, magazines, and anything else I think of that might suit! I hope you enjoy it!
