While we were talking, I was recently asked by a co-worker and friend after she had read my last post, Faces, “Do you believe in God?”
My answer came as quickly as she asked it… “Absolutely… Don’t you?” I asked, but already knew what her answer would be just by the way she asked it.
“I’m an atheist, but truly believe in a ‘higher’ power”.
I’m not a very “quick thinking” guy when it comes to words while being put on the spot, my words come more naturally to me when I get the chance to sit down and write them out.
It wasn’t until after our conversation that I thought of what I wished I would have said.
“How can you not?” is simple as it sounds.
This post isn’t going to follow in the order of the others, as I thought I would give my thought a try. The photos below are of people who we have crossed paths with in one way or another. Some are friends, while others are strangers from worlds away.
When you travel, no matter where you go, people’s faces tend to tell a story greater than those of your surroundings. Part of the experience of exploring is watching those around you. People’s faces are a story of who they are, what they have seen, what they have been through. Wherever you go, pay close attention on those faces… you never know what stories are within.
It didn’t take long for London to become one of our favorite cities, in fact I think it landed the top spot almost immediately. I’m not sure what it was exactly, I think just all of everything put together. Now I have mentioned favorite cities before during our past travels, but as in all around favorite, London takes the cake. I hope those who are following along, if you’ve never been, to put it on your “to-do” list right away… you won’t be disappointed.
I’m going to begin this post with a little story…
I have long been fascinated with everything England, largely due to Queen Elizabeth I, Princess Diana and the Royal Family. And now that it’s 2012, my current love affair with this iconic nation only grew, along with countless others because of the beautiful Duchess of Cambridge, Catherine Middleton. With the Royal Wedding a year earlier, the excitement of it all was sure to still be in the air, and it was!
After a great first day exploring this fantastic city, I had another good night’s sleep under my belt and was ready to head out again on what was a clear and glorious day.
I had heard from a friend on Facebook that a trip to Bainbridge was very much worth it, so with no more convincing needed, I headed down to the waterfront and bought my ticket!
Anytime I get to be on the water is what I call a perfect day.
After my visit back in Wisconsin, I decided to treat myself to a little “added” adventure, so I narrowed it down to Seattle, Washington.
Paul was still in Europe and I had a couple extra days left before heading back to work so I headed west on my first real solo trip. I was super excited. I had never really gone anywhere new by myself before, so this was going to be a first on many levels!
