There is just a few days left to enter this year’s Capture the Colour photography competition run by Travel Supermarket. Thank you to Suzanne from The Travel Bunny, Katherine from Travel the World, and Janice and George from Sand in my Suitcase for nominating me. Do check out their blogs for some great entries. I really enjoyed joining in last year so once again here is my collection of photographs representing red, blue, green, yellow and white.

 Capture the colour

Capture the Colour,

This shot was taken on the same evening as my ‘White’ entry last year. Living in the south of England it was rare to see snow, that is up until a few years ago. It seems to be coming a regular thing now, throwing us into chaos each year!

 

Balloons released into the blue sky in the south of England

 

Capture the Colour, Blue sky balloons

This was a charity fund-raiser where people sponsored a balloon to see how far it would travel. The one that went the furthest and was sent back in the post won a prize. I had great fun waiting for the postman to deliver the tags that were sent back. Out of the 300 released only 7 came back but you could plot them in a straight line across Europe, the furthest almost reaching the German/Austrian border. Due to environmental concerns we never did do this again but what a sight it was to see!

Capture the Colour 2013, green algae covered crocodile

This was taken at the Katchikally crocodile pool. The waters are said to be beneficial for women wishing to conceive and the crocs are so tame that people actually stroke them. If you don’t believe me, read my post Go Wild in West Africa.

 

A yellow sunset walk also in The Gambia

Taken on Kotu Beach where beautiful sunsets are regularly seen.

 

The white sands of Calvi in Corsica

 

Capture the colour 2013, White sands of Calvi

Corsica is a real favourite of mine, the beaches are lovely and the water so clear and blue. I had to get up pretty early for this shot; the water is so still at this time in the morning and I had the beach to myself (apart from one backpacker who was still asleep in the sand just behind me!).

I’d like to nominate Angela from Chasing the Unexpected, Giulia from Travel Reportage, James from Escaping Abroad, Jennifer from My Sardinian Life and Dani and Jess from Globetrotter Girls. Here’s a link to the T&C’s for anyone who would like to enter but hurry, the deadline is 9th October. Sorry for the short notice! Good luck everyone!

Travel Planning Resources


Travel clothes for women

Check out my guide to all my favourite travel clothes for women.

Book your hotel

Agoda is my preferred hotel search engine. I also use Airbnb ($31 discount) for booking rooms/apartments.

Rent a car

Discover Car Hire is a great site for comparing car prices to find the best deal. They search both local and international rental companies.

Book an experience

When I’m travelling solo, especially to a new city, I use Viator and Get Your Guide to book tours and excursions, in particular, food walking tours or to visit somewhere tricky to get to by public transport.

Protect yourself and your trip

Don’t forget travel insurance! Protect yourself from possible injury, theft, and many other unexpected mishaps while abroad. World Nomads provides travel insurance to travellers from over 140 countries. For UK residence, Alianz Assistance offers insurance for backpackers, as well as annual multi-trip cover and single-trip cover starting from £3.36.
