Athens,Beijing,China,England,Greece,Shanghai,Thailand | July 29, 2012 The Dont Forget Travel Group is taking part in the Weekly Photo Challenge, but we’re adding an extra twist as we’re going to try and adapt the weekly theme into being “travel related” somehow! This week’s theme is: PURPLE. #postaday The Oriental Pearl Tower – Shanghai, China One of the buildings that give Shanghai’s Pudong region an edgy modern look. By day it resembles a hyperdermic needle but at night the light show is spectacular. Purple Orchid – Phuket, Thailand the purple orchid on the crisp white sheets was a daily treat at the Laguna Beach Resort Bird house or squirrel house? Kent, England The quaint scene in the beer garden out the back of a local pub near Hever Castle in the English countryside of Kent. So quinessential English, better have another Gin andTonic! Purple Candles – Byron Bay, Australia When a travel brochure mentions “colourful local markets” this is what they must be talking about – this Sunday market at Byron Bay China Bulbs – Beijing, China Sometimes Beijing can be a bit grey, but after leaving Tiananmen Square and skirt around the Forbidden City’s moat, this floral display is a welcome relief. Purple Skies – Athens, Greece Most pictures of Athens are of the Acropolis, this is of Lycabettus Hill – one of the highest points in Athens. Taken from my balcony at the Athens Hilton as the sun is setting which is why the sky has a purple hue. Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside Hammock Love!
