Travel theme: Benches

Thank goodness for travel themes and photo challenges, my travels and spare time have been quite limited of late so I’ve been taking inspiration from others to come up with content for my blog. Benches is the latest travel theme for photographs from Where’s my backpack? and I’ve managed to find a few suitable images to share.

Sensing a pattern? My dear Hubby loves travel but after being dragged from pillar to post wherever we went he needed some down time and who am I to complain, it allows me time to wander in peace and to also get some shots of him snoozing in some very amazing places 🙂

    Sam that first shot is drop dead gorgeous! I want to be there right now!
    My husband would certainly commiserate with yours 🙂

      Thanks Jo! The Cinque Terre was a picturesque place to explore especially with fine weather, wish I was there too. Our poor husbands, but I have warned that it may be a similar experience whenever we travel because I can’t sit still when there are wonderful things to see and experience unless the sitting involves good food and a nice glass of wine 😉

    That sounds like a perfect arrangement. What a hubby-trooper!

      I didn’t mind at all and yes, he is very patient when it comes to his happy-snapping wife and her camera 🙂

    How charming! Hubby is just too cute … napping all along the way! I liked this very much. It gave me a chuckle! 🙂

      Thanks George, he does like his naps and thankfully park benches are everywhere 🙂

    I think there is a world wide “hubby on a bench” society… it runs very close to the hubby couch in dress shops!! 🙂

      I think you could be right, I know my Dad has it down pat because whenever Mum and I go shopping he finds a coffee shop and sits and reads the paper 🙂

    The benches and scenery are beautiful and it looks like you and your husband really use them too!

      Thanks Meg and yes, those benches came in very handy 🙂
