New Delhi, India
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

Ailsa’s Travel theme this week was gold. What is gold to one is not necessarily gold to another. Here are a few of my interpretations about what is golden to me. I hope you enjoy.
Golden in New Delhi
Golden in Turkey
Golden in Korea
Golden in Nepal
Best Golden moments though were the ones I spent back home with my family and friends.

I was very recently nominated to compete in a 5 day B & W Challenge. The goal was to each day pick and post one favorite B & W photo I have taken. Anyone who knows me will absolutely not be surprised that I could not seem to focus on just one thing and therefore did not exactly follow the rules. After perusing over 300 photos I finally narrowed it down to “some” of my favorite photos. I like them so much I thought I would share (and in some cases re-share) the entire grouping here.
These photos represent only a few of my favorites from New York to India. I love them because they express everything from sadness to pure chaos. There is just something about a black and white that is timeless and beautiful. I hope you enjoy.

In my opinion, the easiest city in the world to get around in is Seoul, Korea. They put directional signs up at every corner. Their metro system is by far the coolest. I forgot how easy it was to go places in Seoul. Aside from the signs, the people there will stop what they are doing to give guidance… even if that guidance is sometimes going in a different direction. Ahh Korea, I miss you.
Maps, signs, arrows, video.. you name it it shows you!!
Art, stores, more signs
My all time favorite Autumn photos are of my grandkids and daughters back in Spokane, WA. I’m sure you will agree they are absolutely LOVELY!!!
During my recent visit to Seoul Korea I decided to meet up with friends, go hiking and just walk around some of my old stomping grounds. My walk to Seoul tower brought me through some beautiful hilly areas with the trees just turning amazing colors. I met a friend in Insadong and just happened to stumble on a dance and parade. I tried finding out what the event was.. but will have to just label it improv Korea. I really do love this place.
