My Monday morning office, watching others going to their offices so early in the morning:

Another set of office workers getting ready to start their day:

Climbing out over the mouth of the Brisbane River:

Sunrise in the comfortable offices at the front of my aluminum tube:

Nearing ADL, a river with low cloud/fog/mist sitting over it:

Getting ready to land, crossing a roadway just beyond the airport precinct. Pity I missed getting a photo of the beach

Sardinian town famous for it's murals. Orgosolo.
Thanks Cossie for the photos - didn't know about that town. interesting that the graffiti focuses so heavily on anti-fascism and worker rights. When in Italy recently, our guide vented her anger at the fascists (and saying her friends also felt so aggrieved at their actions although generations before).

Ah, I do enjoy this thread. The world is an amazing place - a puzzle on which I will only play a few pieces.

A sincere thank-you to all those who post their pictures here and write some amazing trip reports (AKA the recent stans report by @henleybeach) :)

Some great inspiration for more travels and ideas for the bucket list.:)

I feel a bit guilty not equally contributing as when I'm on the go I'm too distracted looking at the sites, soaking up the atmosphere or listening to the guide to remember to take pics. :(

I have more but the connection is too slow, so I'll post them later. There are quite a few towns doing the murals and you can follow a 'trail'.

Forgot to post the best picture from my office as we travelled BNE/ADL. We crossed over the coastline (iPhone says O’Sullivan’s Beach) and then took a tight right hand turn to line up for an ILS approach to ADL.

Walked around Schruns, Austria and surrounds this morning-just beat a thunderstorm home. Spotted amongst other things, some Nordic Ski Jumping (looked 8-10 yrs old on big jump), a charming 9 hole golf course and happened upon a mass service where the locals don period dress (apparently 3 times a year)
