I haven’t been updating as often as I should have. Because, one … I got caught up in work. And two, I was just being lazy. Kota Kinabalu has been raining for the past three days and I am feeling a little under the weather lately. The worst thing to happen when travelling. But I am not travelling at the moment, so I should feel relief (despite the cold). Last month and after 26 years, I returned to England with my mother. It was an impromptu decision and I purchased our round-trip tickets four weeks prior to flying on Nov 13. Although I was born in the United Kingdom, my travel to this English country was my first. It was a lovely 10-degree celcius when we arrived. It was cold, it was raining, and it got dark as early as 4pm. But we were lucky not to catch a cold during our one week trip. Here are pictures taken on the first day we arrived (because I am too lazy to go through all the albums 🙂
This week photo challenge: Creepy, takes me back to Aarhus.
When I was travelling in Aarhus, I made it a point to visit the city’s art museum and Denmark’s oldest public art museum – ARos Aarhus Kunstmuseum.
This 10-storey building is about 15-minute (or more) walk from the train station/city centre. The art museum offers visitors a variety of exhibitions and each floor brings you to different sections of arts, some of which are very challenging and mindblowing. In other words, CREEPY and STRANGE.
Vivid; adjective strikingly bright or intense, as color, light, etc. full of life; lively It is fun to dress up when exploring new places. And the strong and rich Balinese culture makes me want to do just that. This island with over 4 million population (according to 2014 census on Wikipedia) is definitely a place where one should return after their first visit. P/S oh! and the little girl in my featured image, she’s my niece 🙂
I am currently updating from Manohara Hotel, Borobudur. Today is my second visit to Borobudur. My first was in 2010. Because it is the weekend, the temple gets very crowded. Also, there will be Buddhist procession. Minus the crowd, it is great to finally meet Candi Borobudur again. And my stay at Manohara is pleasant. But how did I get here is another story. I haven’t been having enough sleep so I am going to bed. This is just an update 🙂
Lately, I haven’t gone out to take decent photos. So for this week photo challenge, I decided to post pictures I took when I was travelling in Aarhus last December.
