Travel theme: Art

Yesterday I went to see an exhibition at The Turnpike Gallery in Wigan. It is called Beastly Machines, Kinetic Sculptures by Johnny White. It’s taking place on 30 June – 8 September 2012 and it’s a free entry.

My Weekly Travel Theme: ART

I didn’t see many people there. Perhaps it was because I went in the late afternoon. There are eight kinetic sculptures in that exhibition such as: Shopping Centaur, Thrush Hour, Canoodling Canoe Gnus, Life Cycle of A Mosquito, In The Dog House, Pigs Might Fly, The Owl and The Pussy Cat. I don’t know the name or title the other one since I didn’t see any board information about that kinetic sculpture.

I took some pictures for each of them. I submit these pictures as my first entry of Weekly Travel Themes in which this week theme is ART.

There’s no information about this kinetic sculpture unless I missed it.

This weekly challenge is run by Where’s my backpack? (Ailsa). Thanks to Ailsa for creating this weekly challenge! 🙂

I’ll post more and another pictures from this exhibition in another post later. Hope you enjoyed it! 🙂

Bala, Love at The First Sight

Image


My first time to visit Bala Lake was in summer 2009 with friends from the church for summer outing. My first impression was WOW and it still remains until now. My second time was summer last year and the third time was on Easter Sunday this year. I just can’t get enough. In Bala I fall in love at the first sight with Wales. Aha! I sounded so poetic, LOL.

Wales is largely mountainous and such a nice place to visit to. It offers you a beautiful, breathtaking, and spectacular scenery. That is the facts. What I love about Wales is its atmosphere and its nuance. It’s very relaxing. Some places still have old fashioned buildings and some houses still keep their old fashioned style as well. I’ve been to some places in Wales such as Llangolen, Holywell, Pantasaph, Rhyl and Prestatyn, Conwy, and of course, Bala.

Bala, Gwynedd in Welsh, is famous with its lake called Bala Lake or Llyn Tegid in Welsh. It’s a tourism place and located in Snowdonia National Park. In the summer there will be more and lots of people doing camping either any outdoor activities. In Bala they still have steam trains that operate alongside Bala Lake Railway.

Here some pictures of Bala that I took last year and last Easter Sunday.
