Four Kinds of Amusing Cats I found in South Africa

I remembered the time we went to South Africa.  As I browsed again the thousands of animal pictures we gathered, it makes me remember the experiences we had.  Including these amusing different cats we captured on their action.

Yes, convince me with that kingly gesture.  You cannot hide your real blood from me kitty.

As if he is the king of the world, but not matter what he still looks like a cat with this cute gesture of his.

Well yeah, you look handsome in here I admit.  But you shouldn’t do like that always, be a real cat sometimes.

What’s the matter boy, why that grimace??? Perhaps you feel tired having those kingly gestures you always featured??? Hmmm… I’m not that convinced!

Way back in the Philippines in 2011, me and my husband was wandering around the island of Bohol.  One of the most visited islands in the country, because of its fascinating beaches and virgin rain forest.  While driving around to nowhere in the city of Tagbilaran, we were stopped by these two breathtaking churches, dating centuries ago.  These old churches has been installed since the occupation of the spanish invaders.  Since then, it has been appointed as one of the “National Historical Landmarks” within the country.

November 7, 2010 the church La Sagrada Familia has been declared as a basilica by Benedict XVI considered as the Holy Father.  It has been considered as well as a holy place, open to the public to worship.

Before it was being created, it was Francisco de Paula Villar who was the first architect of the latter in 1882.  Eventually, after one year and a half had passed, the former and famous architect Antoni Gaudi followed the project.  According to his plans, over forty three years, an amazing and breathtaking church will be standing which is until now still being constructed.

La Sagrada Familia church is consisting of 4500 square meters.  It can accommodate at least 8000 worshippers.  The church is half way finish and is ready to raise the four towers, which has been known being dedicated to the evangelists.

Thanks to the tourists, friends and the worshippers themselves, the construction of the church continue.

We were on our way to the place of our friends in Charmonix France to celebrate New Year.  While on the road I was magnetized by the incredible panorama I saw.  I felt somehow a little desperate because I only took my small camera and not my DSLR with me, yet when I tried to capture those moments I realized it wasn’t bad at all, aside from the fact that our car was running.

 Even-though I haven’t had the chance to capture the waterfalls on some of the walls of the mountains, I didn’t regret what I had though.

La Chaux de Fonds

 

Last week, it was a holiday in Geneva so we spent our five days vacation in La Chaux Fonds. For that days, it wasn’t enough to visit some of the magnificent places they have. But it was a great experience though. I had the chance to see some of their incredible spots and take some shots too! This tiny Swiss city is part of the Neuchâtel canton, located in the Jura mountains. The city has been appointed as the third largest city of Romandie after the city of Geneva and Lausanne; it is a french speaking city.

Take a look some of the photos we took in this tiny yet inviting city of La Chaux de Fonds as we trailed on the wilderness and met various interesting things, flowers, colorful painting like trees and more!

 

 

Jazz band for the celebration of the grape harvest

 

Last weekend we had the chance to witness the celebration of grapes harvest festival, somehow it’s the main event. In one of the great villages of Switzerland, we were lucky to have watched my husband’s uncle’s band. They played jazz music and it was really fun. I got the chanced as well to capture their smiles while playing their instruments.

It was really cold and chilly but I appreciate it. I can truly feel the significance of the event. And while we were on the street on our way where we parked the bike, we also crossed another band who plays a very dynamic kind of  music. The event was fabulous and inviting!
