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

Amazing Destinations
So many amazing places and so little time…………

Abu Simbel – Egypt

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!

Bazaar – Old Cairo

Breathtaking Vistas
Much as I appreciate great architecture and ancient monuments, God’s artistry is hard to beat!

Lyndos Bay – Rhodes

New Experiences
The sheer excitement of new adventures in strange lands!

Balloon Ride – Cappadocia

Intriguing cultures
Varied cultures and customs and the understanding of why we are different ……or not!

Whirling Dervish – Konya, Turkey

Great Food
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

Stuffed Potatoes & Chica Morada – Pisac, Peru

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

Mahjong Players – Shanghai

“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!
