Travel theme: Paths

Walking is something most of us do, and we take it for granted. Our feet take us along paths of life, paths of careers, family and nature.

Come walking with me along my the paths of my travels in this fascinating planet:

 

Vejen, Denmark
Kicking the leaves in country Denmark

 

Paths can take you to new discoveries, and invite you to experience a sensory adventure. They instill a feeling of anticipation, or mystery, of what lies beyond.

A path might lead to a place where each of us will imagine something different, based on on own microcosmic experiences.

Sunshine Coast
Pandanas Palms shelter the stairs to the Beaches of the Sunshine Coast
Family 2013 080
A stairway to where?

As a child, I was completely fascinated with spiral staircases. Not often seen in Australia, they are subject to strict building regulations but regulations have no impact on a child’s imagination.

Iceland
Path to the Magical Blue Lagoon in Iceland

This was a path I will never forget – a special memory for me and my daughter. A wintry swim in the geothermal waters.

Europe 2011second batch 408
You never know how you might meet on the path in Austria
Site of the ancient fortress
A path to Else’s house and Viking history in Norway

Do you have a favourite walking path? Is it near of far from home?

Others share their path at Where’s My Backpack.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Forces of Nature

Coolangatta Australia
Snapper Rocks, Coolangatta, Australia

 

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Forces of Nature.”

In Australia, a country aged by the wind, sun and sea, we see many examples of nature’s work and Forces of Nature.

I am drawn to the sea, as most of us are, who cling to the more hospitable coastal regions of Australia for hearth and home.

The limestone structures that survive, here on Australia’s southern coastline, defy wind, rain, tempest and frothing sea and are an example of natural endurance against the continual pounding of the ocean and are geologically, if not also aesthetically, interesting.
