Tell a story without so many words for a change!
There is the newest challenge yet from my spouse. An exercise in brevity and a tall order to my devotion about writing my epic blog posts but variety is the spice of life and so I am up for the challenge. Thomas Jefferson once said: “The most valuable of all talents is that of never using two words when one will do.” Where words are scarce, I shall rely on the beauty of photography to tell my story.
Should we have a reason to travel? Why, do you have a reason to breathe, to live, to get up in the morning and face your days? You travel to be somewhere else and yet in that place, to find a sense of home and belonging, to explore the fabulous world we live in, to meet your other self, to step an inch closer to another culture and another people, to embrace Mother Nature in its stunning glory, to find out how you get on with your sweetheart, your life companion or most significant of all, just with yourself, to grow, to be fulfilled for months and sometimes years later from memories that you create, to share your stories with others, to open doors that no fantasy or reverie can lavish upon you because this earth is better than any dream and filled with more promises than any heart can behold. So get up, pack your bags, do away with your excuses, put an end to the waiting, pick a destination, and TRAVEL.
True to my words, the rest is in the photos. I created for you a visual journey through some highlights from some of my travels. May you be tempted to travel!
You never know when you may step in the city of your dreams!
You can never guess who may ask to practice English with you!
You cannot believe your eyes inside St. Peter’s Basilica!
You can never forget meeting some of the natives!
You can never understand why a statue may move you!
You can never behold all the colors of a mountain range!
You can never predict where you may taste your best food!
You will be surprised how many steps you will climb just for a view!
You can only marvel when you fall into a most peaceful state!
You can never grasp the beauty of Mother Nature in some places!
You cannot conceive how out of character you may act sometimes!
You can never prepare for how the Colosseum will make you feel!
You can never imagine the sunsets that may come your way!
