Days of Gratitude – Monday 13th August 2012

Grateful for one last look at the Olympic Stadium (this time set up for the closing ceremony).  Ok, not technically on the 13th but we flew on a plane most of the day (13 hours) and ‘lost’ 7 hours which out of 24 hours doesn’t leave a lot of time … and it was the 13th in Singapore and Australia …

Grateful that the amazing Luxembourg Casemates were not destroyed as had been agreed in the 19th Century.  Remarkable to explore – even if a bit claustrophobic – and even to view from a distance.  The bridge in this picture you can walk underground underneath it to allow access even if the bridge was destroyed.

Days of Gratitude – Friday 27th July 2012

Grateful we both survived horse riding.  Was a scary section where all the horses got spooked and galloped away … mine ran off the path, into pine trees and up a steep hill; Simon’s zig zagged around other horses at great speed. It really was amazing that everyone in the group managed to stay on their horses.
