Hello everyone! Wow, it’s been a busy week for me… So it was such a relief to find out that Plunkett had been messing around with photos on the computer again. Thanks Plunkett, you’ve saved Tuesday’s blog post!
He and Paddy thought it might be fun to place themselves somewhere far-flung and interesting, and see if anyone can figure out where they might be. So, come on down and join us for the very first episode of…
Where in the World are Paddy and Plunkett?
At the suggestion of Shirley from Handmade Habit, we’re heading to east Asia for this debut adventure. Thanks, Shirley! Now, no more clues… Are we ready?
Well, this is very nice.
I’d like to go here myself… Oh, wait a sec! I did!
Clearly Plunkett has got his paws into my old holiday snaps. Here are a few more visual clues to help you figure out where exactly the boys might be.
You’d hardly believe you’re in the heart of one of the biggest and busiest cities in the world here. This temple is set in a park of tall old trees and shady bamboo groves, and it’s possible to grab a quiet moment or two to yourself there, as you can see.
I also really loved the craftsmanship of the building’s details… Check out that beautiful door in the top right photo!
The temple is dedicated to a former ruler of the country where it’s situated, and celebrated its 100th birthday last year. It’s not just a tourist attraction either… The locals love it too! Many (and from what I can see, that numbers in the millions) choose to come here for the first prayers of the new year, making it the most popular shrine in the country.
And now all YOU have to do is to figure out the country, the city and the name of the temple! Have a guess in the comments… And let us know where you think the boys should visit next!
