Lebanon Travels- Week 1

It feels good to be back!After a crazy month, I’m finally back to blogging, but this time in another country!
I’m currently in Lebanon, on vacation soaking up the beautiful sun and enjoying the summer that Melbourne never got.

I figured instead of leaving my blog for another month, I would take you all along with me instead, and for one month (give or take), my blog will turn into a travel blog. For the rest of the time I’m here, every week (hopefully)I’ll upload my favourite photos of the week which I have taken, give you a bit of a background story, and basically show you Lebanon from my eyes, a different perspective than the one you all see in the media.

So for Week 1….

This photo was taken on the balcony of my cousins house, in a suburb called “El-Mina”

El Mina is somewhat similar to the walk along the Yarra River in Melbourne, or Docklands. A little suburb full of restaurants, street music, beautiful mosques like the one appearing in the photo, and a place where you can take a nice walk along the water.

A day before Ramadan began, it was a must that we had to all soak up the beach while we could. So with a Go-Pro, sunscreen and tanning lotion my cousins and I took a drive down to a beach called “Sandy Beach”. A beach we go to all the time in the Summer when we’re here, nothing but clear water and nice views. Unnfortunately I didn’t capture any shots of the actual view, other than through a video, so you’ll get those down the track.

We spent the whole day figuring out how to use the Go-PRo in the first place, and trying to take “cool” photos, which ended up turning into a camera roll of selfies.

Finally, there’s my favourite photo of all, the view from my Grandma’s house. This same view, is different every hour. The morning, afternoon, sunset and night is always breathtaking. For some reason it makes me feel calm and relaxed, but maybe that’s just because my Grandma’s house has always felt like home.

I’ll make sure to upload more photos of this same shot at different parts of the day.

That is it for this week, next week I’ll be in Beirut, which means my next blog will be Beirut based!

Once again, thank you for stopping by, if you have any feedback please leave them anywhere in the comment section below!

Keep Smiling 🙂

From Lebanon with love 😉
