On the Way To . . .

Sometimes we find interesting places on the way to other places, Michelle at the Daily Post asks us to share them for this weeks photo challenge. Here are the ones I’ve chosen for you.
Taormina in Sicily is real jewel of a town and one of the ways of getting there is by train. We travelled from Fiumefredo and were delighted to find this stunning ceiling in the ticket office when we arrived at Taormina station.

This road is on the way to the entrance of Sepilok, the orang-utan rehabilitation centre in Sabah, Borneo. It was aย hot, and humid walk from our rain forest lodge, but well worth it for the amazing experience of seeing these wonderful creatures up close.


The long road from the north of Ghana was dotted with villages, where people would rush out to greet us, and we could by eggs and fruit for lunch.


This is the view from the air on the way to Sandakan, from Kota Kinabalu, Borneo.ย The coast is surrounded by coral reefs, the only time I’ve attempted to snorkel. I love the sea, but I’mย not a strong swimmer, so I had to be brave to try it. It turned out to be one of the most incredible things I’ve ever done.

There are lots of on the way posts to visit here, and you can join in too!

  1. So very beautiful! Glad you tried to snorkel, Lucid. I’m not a swimmer and haven’t tried snorkel. Thank you for sharing these beautiful captures. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. It’s amazing what unexpected treasures you come across on your travels, Gilly ~ thank you for sharing some of your favourites with us. The ceiling of the ticket office is amazing and I’m glad you literally jumped out of your comfort zone to snorkel through those amazing reefs. It’s great when you interact with local people and their culture too! Thanks for the mini~tour! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Liked them all! I have experienced two of them – the Sabah ones, so they are special. I have an adopted orang-utan in Sepilok and love getting updates.

      1. Eep! Been to those caves but didn’t have the snake experience. I did get a leech on my ankle though…..
        Climbed Kinabalu – sad to think of what’s just happened there.

I would love to hear from you . . .
