Bursts of colour from around the world

  • SumoMe

It’s a gorgeous day, the sun is shining bright and the flowers in my garden are blooming beautifully. It may be the most logical thing but it always surprises me how colours just spring to life on a sunny day, and they never fail to cheer me up! And that’s one reason why I love to travel: the colours! Whether they’re the natural colours of nature or man-made, they always make for enjoyable, often awe-inspiring, moments. So, if you’re looking for bursts of colour from around the world, scroll down. 🙂
