A wandering bird's-eye overview of most things even vaguely related to travel, and an opportunity for writers, artists and photographers to contribute the historical, the hysterical, the quirky and quixotic... anything with heart.

People carry cardboard boxes to and fro – more and more – the Barcelona alley now cluttered. Tourists and locals watch till open boxes line the shop and cafe fronts.
 
The boxes’ contents are delicately removed and placed on the pavement. A lighted match solves the mystery, a glowing wick ignites the shadows. Before long there's a rolling sea of tea-lights, way down the length of the alley.

Students dart this way and that, fine-tuning to some grand plan, deftly placing each flickering light. Others follow, lighting those having spluttered and died.

      i guess so, but how does it go...
      all who wander are not lost?
      significant shot for me though - classic light & shade - having had my passport stolen earlier in the day

    Those lights look beautiful. I bet the people there are pretty much the same way.
