A beautiful vintage wooden mandapa displayed outside India Hut restaurant in Galle Fort. These mandapas are used as a shrine for a Hindu God or Goddess. The design is typically of Tamil Nadu, even having the Nataraja Shiva on top (flanked by his mount, the bull Nandi on either side), an icon of Chidambaram. Tamil Nadu produces some of the best wood carving crafts in India.
Throwback Thursday!! My favourite type of travel is and always will be, with my children... but I have also found that Solo Travel is awesome!! My first Solo trip was a short trip to Norah Head along the Central Coast of Australia, a short drive from home. Amazing beaches and gorgeous weather was a drawcard that I couldn't turn down. My days consisted of walks on the beach, laying in the sun and reading my book ...in uninterrupted peace..but the best part of my first Solo trip was the Sunrise over the ocean as a glorious backdrop to the famous Norah Head lighthouse. No complaints that I had "dragged" them out of bed from the children just the beautiful sounds of the birds as they started their day. Solo travel for mums.... a well deserved break! #MyIntrepidMoment

Italy series - Verona.
Colle San Pietro (Saint Peter’s Hill) rising above Adige.
The name was given to the hill during the Medieval Period when a church dedicated to Saint Peter was erected here on the remains of the ancient Roman temple.
Being a strategic place, hill was fortified in medieval period and used by Veronese rulers to help to control the town. When Napoleonic army arrived in 1801 most of the ancient buildings were destroyed and later function of the site definitively changed with arrival of Austrians. The ancient Saint Peter’s church was destroyed and an army base and barracks were built here. The fortress style, dramatically changed the original look of the site, but historical name “Castel San Pietro” remains to identify this architectural complex rich in history.
Head there for the sunset - the steep hike to the hilltop is well worth the effort. You'll be rewarded with complete panorama over the rooftops of Verona with its many towers and the thread of the River Adige as it flows through the city’s heart.
