The Urge To Wander
Man is essentially a nomad. To wander, to test the geographical limits of ones existence, is a primeval human desire. When you get bitten by the travel bug you connect with that innate nomad in you. My connection is absolute and I feel blessed to be able to travel. When I am not travelling, I am poring over travel books or scouring online travel forums. For my first blog post I have uploaded random images from our travels across the globe. Images that I hope will convey why I love to travel……..why I get the urge to wander
So many amazing places and so little time…………
The smells and the sounds!
Strangely my memory of a place is linked more to its smells and sounds and colours rather than the attractions!
Much as I appreciate great architecture and ancient monuments, God’s artistry is hard to beat!
The sheer excitement of new adventures in strange lands!
Varied cultures and customs and the understanding of why we are different ……or not!
Simple meals in remote villages or snack food from street corners or gourmet meals in fancy restaurants…..food plays a huge part in my travel plans
And most of all the people, the people, the people!
It’s the people that make the place, and in all our travels it is the interaction with local people, that has contributed largely towards making a trip memorable
“It might be said that a great unstated reason for travel is to find places that exemplify where one has been happiest. Looking for idealized versions of home – indeed looking for that perfect memory” ~ Paul Theroux in Fresh Air Fiend
Thank you for visiting and wish you many beautiful journeys in the coming year!
