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…

Unexpected: My Golden Butterfly…

Today Ailsa´s challenge is: “Unexpected”.. ..

And I am glad…Because something unexpected happened to me yesterday, while playing with a picture I took last week…

This is the original pic…

Blue butterfly

And this is what I got….

"My Gold Butterfly..."

 Life is full of expected and unexpected moments…Some  are black…Some are grey….And some more are vivid, warm and full of light…

And all of them are ours…

All of them  are part of that Odyssey that is our passage through the world….

Let´s face them…

Let´s be brave…

Let´s smile to life!

🙂

When we were Young and Happy….

When we were young and happy

We did not have that much…

Just the sun, the sea, the sand and the moon

and our hearts full of dreams…

But we were feeling so rich!!

Now we still have the sun and the moon…

Even the sea sometimes…

But our hearts are empy…

They drained with each beat through the years…

“Too late, too late, too late…”

Should we trust them?

Is there a time for dreams?

Cee´s Fun Foto….Lines…

This week Cee´s challenge is about lines…
Today, sometimes, our life is full of lines, of directions we have to follow, of good ideas we do not need to contrast…

Let´s twist a little bit…

Let´s play just a little bit…

 But…Who said a line must be plain and simple?
