  • Hi Allane, it was a lovely surprise to find that you and Ting had featured my post as one of your favourites for the week – thanks so much it means a lot and also thanks for coming up with the concept of #MondayEscapes and doing all the work each week! Thanks to Cathy as well for helping out with the hosting for the week whilst Ting is having a well deserved break! I’ve already read quite a few of the posts – they are so varied and interesting but I will read some more later tonight after dinner (which I’m supposed to be organising now!). I am enjoying getting to know more fellow bloggers – it’s a great way to catch up 🙂 Thanks so much again for your support and hope you have a great week too 🙂

    Your Monday escapes are simply beautiful, just not able to participate as your guidelines, will catch up soon, and make some good contributions to your lovely conceptualization…These three chosen photos are indeed brilliantly captured, each has a lovely story to tell, especially the second pictute, the Morocco one, it is mystical, it is captivating, it is romantic, it is a poetic representation of our beautiful imagination in reality…
    Hope you are having a great week.
    Take Care!!!

    • Don’t worry Nihar, feel free to participate whenever you can 😀
