Winter sunset

Even standing more or less still for a couple of hours or more in sub-zero temperatures, somehow you just don’t feel the cold.

The touch of warm colour in the sky as sunset approached probably helped.

A night in Pisa

After the day’s walkabout, a stroll around the tower area in the evening was the most likely choice, even if it meant coping with crowds. But as it turned out, not noticing them was easier than I’d hoped.

21 billion midges

According to this article, 21 billion edges were predicted for Scotland’s 2017 midge season. I reckon that a fair number of them, like me, opted for a trip to Ireland that summer, boosting the already thriving local population.

Those pesky creatures turned these peaceful spots into pure torture, at dawn and dusk respectively.

On my Not To Do list: do not venture here again without a midge net and repellent.
