Around the world in Photos


Recommended Posts

Hi Bee-ess, your pictures of the elephant sanctuary are wonderful so thanks for posting them.

We are now sailing north west along the coast of India and will arrive in Mormugao, Goa tomorrow.

I have a long love affair with India and have visited many times on cruises and land tours. I love the history, the culture, colour and the hustle and bustle.

Kochi sail-in and out passing the Chinese nets.....

You beat me to it again, Bee-ess and you have much better pictures of the town than I have but here are mine. We were in Kochi on Good Friday in 2017 and were amazed to see the Christian parades through the town...

Our favourite place to visit when we are in that area is the Kerala Backwaters and the trips on the converted rice barges....

Great photos. Thank you.

And how lovely to see the photo of Aurora with her yellow funnel Bee-ess.

Yes, that was 2006.

India again today as we arrive in Mormugao, the port for Goa.

 We sail north again and dock in Mumbai tomorrow.

We did a trip from the port to the capital of Goa, Panjim and then out into the countryside to a spice farm...

Mormugao was very industrialised and the town wasn't particularly attractive so I'm glad we got to see other parts of the region.

I was on Aurora 2013 World Cruise and remember Mumbai well. Have been there twice and it has an amazing effect on all the senses.

Hi Jane, thank you for your lovely comment. It made my day. I'm glad that you are enjoying the photos. I am having such a good time looking through my pictures....so many happy memories!

We have arrived in the UAE today and we continue our voyage with stops in Oman tomorrow,...Muscat and Salalah.

Our first visit to the UAE was in 2010 and the last one was in 2017 so our pictures reflect the spread of time although I have used the more modern ones where I can.

Dubai... in 2010 we were much more agile so did the more adventurous activities...
