India: Delhi: Lotus Temple

The perfect time to visit the Lotus Temple was at sunset, a sight beautiful to see.

It is open to all visitors, of all religions, which is the basis of Bahai faith, making it simply a house of worship; a place of prayer and meditation.

The temple is made of marble, cemet and sand and was finished in 1986, designed by Persian architect Fariborz Sahba, and took 800 engineers and artisans and 10 years to complete.

Shoes have to be taken off and photography is not allowed inside the temple, but there is enough beauty in it's incredible structure and surroundings to take in.

Greece: Santorini, Oia

Have a wonderful weekend!


Greece: Santorini, Oia's Sunset

The crowd has gathered. Everyone's settled in for the big moment.

The time has come.

Sunset over Oia.


Greece: Santorini, Dogs + Photogs

The sunset in Oia brought every tourist to it's tip, each person vying for a comfortable spot to enjoy sun down.

Then, there was this dog, like the Lassie of Oia, leading the way for tourists, and braving great heights for a photo op; finally settling down in a nook that stuck out way over the water.


Greece: Village of Oia

The other end of Santorini, is the famous Oia Village. Famous for what, you ask? Their sunsets. So after our beach day, we decided to stay on the bus until it reached Oia, to catch the sun setting.

But first, some sights along the way, and a curious dog who posed for pictures.
