#53 The Adventures of Mr Mustard : My Favourites

If you’re staying in the UAE for Eid, I did a collection of cool deals around town that you may go to, for Citispi – click here to have a browse through ๐Ÿ˜‰

If you’re planning to go away, like step into a plane and fly somewhere, here’s a summary of the places that we’ve been to for leisure or work to give you a bit of inspiration (hopefully) – put together by my favourite Mr Mustard instagram photos ๐Ÿ™‚ Also just to remind myself that I’ve been to a lot of places so I shouldn’t be so sad that everyone else is going away (and will try and not look at facebook for the next two weeks…:D )

A mini introduction – long before my main instagram account came about, I started Mr Mustard. It was a highlight of travelling ( I know, pretty sad ay ) – where shall I put him this time? Where will be a cool shot? ๐Ÿ™‚ I know it’s weird but I always get lazy to actually blog about our travels, as ย most of what’s important is covered in his posts anyways. Click here to browse through the miscellaneous travel write-ups that I have done.

Enjoy! And yeah, we’ll take him out soon……

  • Turkeyย – ย Istanbul –ย Grand Bazaar – I like this because it was the very very first photo of Mr Mustard ever

  • Bocas Del Toro – off Panama City, The Caribbean –ย Again no risk factor, we had most of the place to ourselves… just had to put it up cause it’s so beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚


  • Bocas Del Toro – Cayo Coral –ย This was actually taken quite far away.. I walked all the way to the pier, set him down, and then came back to take this one shot, he he. Again G in the background going.. hurry up!


  • Panama – Casco Vejo –ย Love love love this shot. Especially when the lady walked pass! Casco Vejo is such a colourful city in Panama. I took so many shots of Mr Mustard there.


  • ย Georgia – Kazbegi – Risk factor – SUPER HIGH. If he fell, that’s it… Mr Mustard somewhere in the valleys in the beautiful Kazbegi region of Georgia


  • Nepal – Kathmandu –ย We went to Kathmandu before the earthquakes so I’m not sure if the temple is still there ๐Ÿ™


  • Greece – Delphiย –ย You can see why I loved mucking around with this toy, hehe. I sat him there, went up and watched (for a long time). These other tourists came around.. hehe, and yes I waved back. Again, something I don’t think we can longer do..


  • Greece – Santorini – Beautiful Santorini. Take me back ๐Ÿ™‚


  • Greece –ย Athens –ย Love the colours, the graffiti.


  • China – Harbin – I love the look on the ladies’ face.


  • China – Harbin – Dog-sledding –ย Risk-factor – again super high, hahaha. I had him stuck between my knees as we sledded through the frozen lake and yes it was frickin’ cold.


  • Cyprus – Milomeris Falls – Again one of those crazy shots where I had to step over stones trying not to fall into the water (and no I didn’t fall ), tip toe and perch him on the rock, walk a bit further so I’m not in the photo as G took it, ha ha.


  • Italy – Florence – Again, one of the many crowd shots


  • Italy – Venice – He he risk factor – high ! You can hardly see him


There you go. Go check him out on instagram, I haven’t posted for months now. Not sure when our next holiday abroad will be!…. Till then ๐Ÿ™‚
