Trains and boats and planes...remember these lines from the lyrics of a Burt Bacharach song of the same title?
Trains and bloats and planes are passing by
They mean a trip to Paris or Rome
For someone else but not for me
The trains and the boats and planes...
I've got loads of photographs capturing these forms of transportation and more...all requisites in the life of a traveller. I'm using these snapshots for my new series about all the different ports of call that I have had the pleasure of viewing from the vantage point of a sailor approaching land and shouting "Land Ahoy!" (Do they ever say this?) Anyway, in my series we'll be calling out "Ship ahoy!" as we spot all kinds of ships, tugboats and yachts. There will be sky and sea scapes, plus coastline landscapes for our viewing pleasure while we anticipate our dream cruise to take us to foreign shores.
This first post covers Singapore Harbour from which the cruise-ship departed when I went on my cruise to Langkawi and Phuket last week. Next in this series I will feature ports where we disembarked on the Western Mediterranean Cruise which I took last year in May.

|Is that a little tugboat pulling the huge schooner? The cable car line above connects Singapore to Sentosa Island.|
|We're sailing away..see you soon, Singapore!|
|Pretty heavy traffic here!|
