“Back from Holidays….”

Hello everybody!

Here I am, back from holidays! There have been 4 terrific weeks, full of adventures. C. has been driving more than 6000 kms….And we made it!

Everything started here, in a ship from Travemunde to Trelleborg….One night, clear but cold, with the lights of the port dancing in front, like saying farewell, farewell….

“Wherever you go, go with all your heart” (Confucious)

Adventure??? Adventure!!!

-“C?”

-“Yessss??”

-“C, my dear, can you help me?”

-“Yessss???”

-It’s this weekly challenge….This time it is “Adventure!”

-“Oh! Adventure!!! So…You will not have any problems in solving this challenge…”

-“But…I do not have any adventures!!!”

-“Excuse me???”

These lines express, more or less, what happened this evening when I read about the challenge…And, if I think about it, I have to agree with C…Yes….It is true…I have had many many adventures in my life..But I did not had a camera with me!!! It was part of my everyday life….And, I must admit, I miss it so much so many times!!!!

But life is life!

Now, my adventures, since I met C, have been absolutely different…But not worse!!!! May be even funnier… Because I have somebody to share it with ….

So, this time, and only this time, I am going to share some personal pics…

🙂

This adventure started when I first got married to C…That was the beginning of a real adventure!!!

..He brought me to South Africa, Zambia and Botswana…I LOVED the waterfalls…

I LOVED Botswana….It was like being in the middle of a National Geographic chapter…Everywhere I was able to smell ADVENTURE with capital letters!!!

Well…May be it helped me my particular sense of orientation…. 🙂

Since then,  we went to many wonderful places…I can not forget the excitement I felt when we walked together through the Siq towards the Petra´s Treasure…I felt like in the middle of Indiana Jones´film…

Or when we shared our wanderlust in Egypt…Although some times it was not so funny… It is kind of scary being that high up with a camel who has a mind of its own!

But in general I loved it…And I felt  completely integrated!!!

DSCF8344But…

…I bet you realised that, at the beginning,  I said “When I first married” C.—

Yes..

..Everything happened in the middle of a wonderful trip to the States…

I do not know if it was because of the breathtaking beauty of the Big Canyon…

USA 2009 379

..Or because of the happiness of being in Prescott or Tombstone, with its saloon´s ´doors…

DSCF4294 C. always says I have read too many books and seen too many films…He is right, of course! I grew up with the Westerns!!!! So, imagine my excitement when in Arizona…!! Everything was so right….That I started my next ADVENTURE…YES!!! I got married again!!!

Well, in fact, WE GOT MARRIED again!!DSCF4099

Yes….It was in Las Vegas…

Yes…Tinkerbelle…C´est moi… And the Roman General..Yes..It is C…

And YES! Of course!!! It was ELVIS who married us!!!

Ah!!!

I think LIFE IS AN ADVENTURE….

One only needs an horizon, a sea to cross…And maybe a companion…

Travel Theme: On the Road…

This week Ailsa´s challenge is great….”On the road”…

I have to say C. and I  travel  a lot of kilometers together every year….It is a kind of ritual: There is a car, there is a challenge, there is a destination, there is a group of friends from every where…And there is The Road…

On-the-road

Europe is wonderful, so one can cross from one country to another country without even realizing…And the landscapes are great…


.

One important thing every copilot has to take into account if he/she wants to be a really good copilot is to have a very clear idea of what ” Great landscape” means to your pilot!

Rear-view...

Of course, there are traditions…We will  always find a tractor or something like that…You can bet it!

.

But it does not matter…I do not know why, but on the road everybody develops that kind of friendly style in moments of “male bonding”… You know… “All for one…”

All-for-one...

May be it has something to do with who you meet along the way….

Ejem….I was thinking more about this kind of “Who”…

Nuns-and-cars...

So….Trust me…

Even if you think it is too hot..

Too-hot...

…Even if you are afraid of getting lost…

Get-lost!

Just follow the road!…
