Travel Pictures and Book Cover Creation

After posting a brief account of my recent cruise from Singapore to Thailand to Vietnam and back to Singapore, I got a lot of requests to see more pics of my trip. Okay, if you insist (I always love sharing my travel pics).

If, however, you are more interested in How to Create Book Covers that Sell Books, then pop on over to the Insecure Writer's Support Group website to check out my article there.

I don't have many great photos of Singapore, though it's a beautiful city. It was a humid, raining day. I did get to the Singapore Flyer, a massive Ferris wheel and below is probably my best shot with it in the background (if you look closely).
Leaving Singapore:
Travel advice: Don't go on a cruise if you want to stay on your diet:
Dining in opulence on the Mariner of the Seas, Royal Caribbean:
Just outside Bangkok, Thailand:
Reckon I could sneak one of these onto the balcony of my new place? Every good balcony needs a dragon fountain...
I love all ancient ruins and/or intricate workmanship. It's great when I get both in the one place.
The Sanctuary of Truth, Pattaya, Thailand:
Floating market, Pattaya, Thailand:
Vietnam wasn't as pretty, but I still enjoyed it.
Okay, I have a gazillion more pics, but that's enough for now.

Where have you travelled to recently? What's your favourite travel destination?

  1. I see the Ferris Wheel.
    I think that dragon fountain would look great at your place.
    Cool you got to see Thailand. My parents saw it but I was too young to go at the time.
    Feel free to share as many photos as you like!

    1. If you thought that dessert looked impressive... wait, you were talking about the dessert, right? ;)

  3. Beautiful photos. No, don't go on a cruise if you're on a diet. Just get good and skinny beforehand and then go enjoy all of the 24-hour dining.

  6. Love that dragon fountain!

    Hmm, I put pics up on my blog today, but they are nowhere near as exotic as yours. :)

  7. You sure got to see some great places. That is one big cruise ship indeed, which I suppose is obvious, but never been on the inside of one at our sea.

  9. Thanks for sharing these Linda! I am adding this to my list of travels to do. Been thinking about going on another cruise and with Royal Carribean! I am sure it was a fun but much needed restful vacation for you. I am leaving Maui today, heading back to cooler Canada today after two weeks in heat! And have a ton of pictures to process.

  16. Hi Lynda, your cruise sounds lovely, the pictures are wonderful. I just took a short vacation to Hyderabad with friends, for 4 days last year in July. After that haven't traveled anywhere.

  25. How fun to see your photos! My husband traveled to Singapore last year, and he really enjoyed it. I hope to someday do a trip like yours! I went to Monterey last weekend! Not as dramatic a change, especially since I'm from California, but I loved it! :)
