What a Thrill it is to Travel

Newer Older

What a thrill it is to travel
Perhaps in a different country
The cultures incredibly diverse
So many wonderful things to see

The clothes can be so different
Unique in their treasured styles
An entirely distinctive kind of people
With their friendly happy smiles

And the food can be quite challenging
Different tastes and how they eat
But, hey, I’m ready to try it
Doesn’t have to be potatoes and meat

Different ways and thoughts of worship
It is such an international treat
To see the different cultures
And all the interesting folks you meet

So if you get a chance, folks
Get on a plane or cruising ship
Take yourself to another country
Have a great and wonderful trip!

~Marilyn Lott

💛 Well this isn’t another country... it is my country, England. Taken last September, on the coastal railway line path, Dawlish Warren, Devon UK.

And yes, I sure love to travel..... even if invariably, I reach my destination, and cry “ok, that’s it, I’ve had enough... I want to go home now 😅 ...I’ve been known to start packing, that very same night 😂😂😂

I’m not very adventurous when it comes to trying out different foods, especially in a foreign country. However, I like looking around, in a restaurant.. and seeing what others have ordered.
Not just food either... I love clothes/fashion, so I check out what they’re wearing. Listening in to conversations... oh, yes sir... there are some eye openers 😅 love to do that.

More than anything though, it’s the exhilarating feeling of being alive you get when being away... like a toddler let off the reigns :-) or a bird, taking off on his first flight :-). Stepping out of my comfort zone...... finding out more things, and being reminded of what I already know. Being curious... being silly... being wild and carefree.

Sigh...... is it Summer yet 😊😀😅😎☀️💛

🌻 dedicated to dear friend Crush.

P.s. i’ll leave off posting now, in order to make sure I’ve caught up with all your pictures :-) especially those of you who have faved, commented and left notes -on this and my other recent photos. Thank you all, so much xxx

    Beautiful photo, I have always loved seeing the line at Dawlish running parallel with the beach.

    The railroad tracks leads the viewer to explore the beautiful houses. Excellent composition.

    Lovely captured, the lines and the contrast of the rails to the houses, while the share the same curve. England, well Britain to be more correct, is my wife and mine prefered holiday destination too. It is not our country as it is yours, but maybe our second home?

    If you love Britain as you say, then you are qualified to call it “your country” 😊 it is our honour !!

    Anne J ~ poetic photography ¨Thank you, both my wife and I do. I didn't go outside of Norway before I was 31, but we have been to Britain at least once every second year since then. I am afraid I haven't been much down south, one night in Beer, a couple of nights in Cotswold and the ever as sad last night outside Gatwick is it. We like to walk, so it has been much in North Wales, Lake District, the Dales and Scotland.

    I think I have been to Britain 11 times, any other country amounts to 4, once to Poland, once in Czech and Austria, and three times to Sweeden. Well, that makes it 5 times to other countries, but still :-)
