Weekly Photo Challenge: Journey

I love the word journey. It suggest so much more than a trip, tour, travel or visit. Each place I visit is a new journey, a new opportunity to explore and learn something about the people who live there, their language, culture and way of life, etc.

Because journey is such a strong word, I knew that it had to be part of my blog name, InsideJourneys. And when I saw that it was the theme for this week’s Photo Challenge at WordPress, I had no doubt that I’d have plenty of suitable photos to choose from.

    Love that train photo. Don’t know what it is with me and trains. I’ve never ridden one but always had a fascination with them. From childhood, I guess. And believe it or not, as much as I don’t like water, I like row boats and seeing them on the water. Not with me in one, of course.

    Very relaxing and taking it easy photos. You’ve got one heck of a camera to capture the tail end of that plane.

  14. I really enjoyed your pictures showing us your ‘journey’. Especially like the canoes and the tall ship in Montego Bay.

  15. Thanks, Debbie. Glad you like them.

  16. Hahaha, thanks Totsymae!
    Know how much you don’t like water, I’m surprised to hear that you like seeing boats. I never would have guessed.
    You mean you never took the train when you were in Europe? You must take a ride, it’s such a cool experience. I really like the old ones with the steam engine and I also like the new ones too.

  17. Oh my God how did you take this airplane shot? Simply marvelous! Every time I come to your blog I fall in love with your collection!

  19. I guess I have, Elizabeth. Most times, though, I tend to think of all the places I haven’t been — and that can be a little overwhelming. Thanks, glad you like.

  20. I love the window seat and usually try to get a few shots, especially of clouds.

  21. Oh that’s great! You know I m a little afraid of heights and have never air traveled!

  22. It may be difficult for you to fly then. I have a friend who doesn’t fly either, she’s afraid of air turbulence.

  23. Oh I am too! And after watching movies like ‘turbulence’ ans ‘snakes on the plane’ I don’t think I can ever fly 😀

  24. Oh, I don’t watch movies like those. Scary movies aren’t my favorite.
