Travel inspiration – blue

Shades of blue have always been a lure for me – from the skies to the seas, like flying over the Caribbean Sea and the northern part of The Bahamas, the perfect harmony of blue from above and below:

And Mother Nature has shown me the blue footed booby, a bird indigenous to the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador, with its distinctive blue feet and also drew me below the surface to see a sea lion playing:

Or even the back of a building, showcasing a small part of a mural from Montreal’s Mural Festival:

And the shades of the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, Turkey – a favourite spot for contemplation in this busy, big city:

Yet my dream of the upcoming Spring season in Canada reminds me of this image, taken at my friend’s house in Vancouver, BC where the flowers decided to find a tiny spot to escape under the fence:

I admit blue is an easy lure for me when I travel – and I’ll always remember the memorable visit to Iceland’s Blue Lagoon – an icy shade of blue, but a hot soak that is a must-do when visiting this northern country:
