Windows on the World - Y is for Yachts in Yvoire

This month I am participating in the A-Z Blogging Challenge where I will endeavour to post on this blog each day. I will be sharing photos of Windows that I have photographed on my travels and highlighting from A-Z the places where I found these Windows on the World.

Yvoire is a pretty town on the shores of Lac Leman. We saw many quaint windows there on our visit with friends in 2015.

Windows on the World - X is for eXiting Xian


This month I am participating in the A-Z Blogging Challenge where I will endeavour to post on this blog each day. I will be sharing photos of Windows that I have photographed on my travels and highlighting from A-Z the places where I found these Windows on the World.

Xian in China was an unremarkable city of 7 million people but we had visited there because it is the gateway city to the Terracotta Army. My mind wasn't on windows on Xian but on our visit to the warriors.

Blue skies for our flight out of Xian.

 One could be forgiven for thinking we were in Egypt

Windows on the Word - U is for Up over Uluru

This month I am participating in the A-Z Blogging Challenge where I will endeavour to post on this blog each day. I will be sharing photos of Windows that I have photographed on my travels and highlighting from A-Z the places where I found these Windows on the World.

Back in 2002 when we were visiting the Northern Territory I took my first trip in a helicopter. Although the windows weren't too clean I had a marvellous time enjoying the sights.  I didn't take any photos during the flight.


Dirty windows didn't mar the experience

Windows on the World - S is for Skiers in Snowbird

This month I am participating in the A-Z Blogging Challenge where I will endeavour to post on this blog each day. I will be sharing photos of Windows that I have photographed on my travels and highlighting from A-Z the places where I found these Windows on the World.


In February this year I visited the ski resort of Snowbird in Utah, USA. My three friends and I were the only non-skiers who were in our crowded cable car as it travelled up to 11,000 feet. The cable car was quite empty on the way down as the skiers travelled down under their own steam.

When we were in Reykjavik, Iceland last year we visited an open-air museum in Arbaer where we were able to visit Icelandic houses from various time periods throughout history. At this marvellous museum we were given insights into the history of Iceland. There was a variety of windows in the buildings at the museum.

Windows on the World - Q is for a Quest in Qaqortoq

This month I am participating in the A-Z Blogging Challenge where I will endeavour to post on this blog each day. I will be sharing photos of Windows that I have photographed on my travels and highlighting from A-Z the places where I found these Windows on the World.

The letter Q was quite a challenge for me. I have visited a few Q places including a couple of Queenstowns but I don't have many Q windows in my photo albums. So I am returning to Greenland and sharing some photos from Qaqortoq (a town with three Qs.)
