Weekly Photo Challenge: Resolved

5 01 2013

In 20o7 we saw an exhibition at the Perth Museum which featured a selection of Egyptian Antiquities from the Louvre.  It was spectacular and we loved the intricate craftsmanship, beautiful detail and amazing symbolism of the pieces.  In 2011 we heard that the Tutankhamun exhibition would be in Australia for the first time, but was only going to Melbourne.  Despite a fear of flying, I resolved to work through it and fly from Perth to Melbourne to see the exhibition.  We had a wonderful time in the city and made our way around on trams and on foot.  We found fantastic Greek restaurants, lovely gardens and markets.  We had tickets to the exhibition for our third day and made our way to the Museum which was situated behind the Royal Exhibition Building  (below).  It was a great trip and felt good to be out and about, exploring somewhere new, yet seeing something ancient as well.  I’m glad we did it.

Well done that lady for resolving to overcome your fear! Having seen the Egyptology in the Louvre I know it was worth it 🙂

Yes, it was. The Louvre and the British Museum are definitely on the “bucket list”!!! Not sure if I’ll get to Egypt though, but I’d love to see it.

Congrats on conquering your fear. I saw the exhibit some years ago and it is worth the trials you went thru to get yourself there!
