6098 miles from England is ......

Angkor Wat
And a surprise postcard came in the post today! :-)
The description on the card is ...
"Fire in the sky. A magic sunrise in Angkor Wat"
Angkor is one of the most important archaeological sites in South-East Asia.

 contains the magnificent remains of the
different capitals of the Khmer Empire, from the 9th to the 15th century.

 They include the famous Temple of Angkor Wat and  at
Angkor Thom, the Bayon Temple with its countless sculptural decorations.
My good blogger  friend Jackie and her husband
are currently on a trip which will eventually take them
to Australia and New Zealand. 
Jackie's blog "Junk Boat Travels"  is amazing .. believe me !!
Take a look for yourself. 
   They travel a lot, so lots to read and see.
BIG THANK YOU to Jackie ♥

Calendrier Fevrier 2015 ...Angouleme Street Art

Memoires du XXe Ciel by Yslaire
(Quote taken from the website)
"In 1986, after having met the scenarist Balac, he created Sambre, a 19th-century saga, about an impossible love story between Bernard Sambre, a rich young man, and Julie, a farmer girl, during the 1848 revolution in France. This series was original because the graphical style used in these albums is different from the one Hislaire used before, and because the number of colours used is very restricted and centered on red"
LOVE the Angel ...!!
The artist is Bernard Hislaire , he was
 born in 1957 in Brussels, Belgium.
His psudonyms are Sylaire and Yslarie .
His work of  Comics and Art seems based on the Theme -
 Angels and Eva Stern.
I would love to go  back and do the walk around the city and if I got the chance
I could coincide it with the Circuit des Remparts  (cars )
The first Circuit des Remparts race in  took place in 1939
