Photo Scavenger Hunt :: May #1 ... Space

Hi there everyone 😀

It's May and it's Friday so it's time for the first of Astrid's photo scavenger hunt challenges for this month.

The theme this week is ... space. 

After a fair while pondering, a Google search for synonyms and knowing full well that I had no photos of outer space I decided to opt for a trawl through the archive to find one of my favourite spaces.

Back in 2009 Martin and I honeymooned on the beautiful Greek island of Rhodes. It's the only 'sun' holiday that we've ever had together and we had an amazing time. There really is something very relaxing about being in wall to wall sunshine, in a nice hotel, all inclusive and by the sea.

This was the view we woke up to from our balcony each morning ...

... but up there ...

... was our favourite space around the hotel. Once up there we always had our fingers crossed that this one particular space would be free ...

And when it was we were definitely settling in ...

... and yes ... I do know there is a palm tree growing out of my head 😂😂😂

If this spot wasn't free, there were others ...
But none really compared to our favourite spot ... you may recognise my blog profile picture ...
Yep ... that was taken in the very same spot.

How wonderful it would to be back there now ... maybe one day 😀

PS ... I’ve just published this post and had to pop back in to add that today is actually our Wedding Anniversary, so this post is actually more appropriate that I thought when originally writing it. Thank you Astrid for such a perfect opportunity for a trip down memory Lane ... even though I didn’t realise it at the time 😃



  1. It certainly looks like a lovely spot. Love the palm tree growing out of your head; it almost looks staged! I'm not a traveller but would go in a 'machine' that could get me to places 'instantly'. Then if I don't like it I can come home at once!!! Perhaps not in my life time. But sunshine at home is my current wish!

    1. Haha ... at least the palm tree matches my outfit. We have sunshine today and will be making the most of it ... back to rain all day for tomorrow. Wouldn’t it be lovely to have a few consecutive days of good weather 🙏🙏🙏

  2. What a lovely spot & good thinking outside the box. You could get wall to wall sunshine here in Oz in summer too. Take care, stay safe and hugs.

    1. Thank you Susan ... we haven’t flown anywhere in ages ... just seems like a huge effort. We tend to just find a cottage, load the car up to the rooftop and stay local ... that sunshine though 😃

  3. What a gorgeous place for a honeymoon, every view fabulous, sea everywhere and sunshine!! Fancy being photobombed by a palm tree!! A really cool look. xx

    1. It was perfect ... soooooo relaxing 😃

  4. That looks like a beautiful place to stay. How nice that you could remember it on your actually anniversary, Happy Belated!
    The palm tree looks like you have a spiky ponytail, too cute!
    Thanks for joining in.

  5. Thank you. It was beautiful and lots of lovely places to visit too. It was only a last minute thought really but it was nice to be able to reminisce and it was pre-blogging days so all new to post 😃


Thanks for taking time to comment on my blog. I love to hear what people think about what Martin and I have been up to.
