Travel Theme: Connections

I’ve got into the habit of trying to tie the photo theme challenges from Where’s My Backpack? and The Daily Post into a single post, but this week I’m drawing a blank. I just couldn’t find a strong enough travel-related link between the two. So I’m afraid I’m going to pass on The Daily Post’s Habit theme, and instead concentrate on Ailsa’s Connections.

So here are a few Connections I came up with…

Past to Present

The Pantheon in Rome was built  almost 1900 years ago and is still in use for its original purpose (more or less)

Continent to Continent

Iceland sits astride the boundary between the European and North American tectonic plates, so you can literally stand with a foot on each continent.

Generation to Generation

Sue and her goddaughter, Abi. What’s this got to do with travel? Well, they live on opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean.

Island to Island

I’ve twice sailed on the Celebrity Summit, the last time between islands in the Caribbean

Earth to Space

But perhaps the most amazing thing I’ve ever witnessed was the penultimate launch of the Space Shuttle Atlantis in 2010.

    Very interesting take on the theme, Jaspa. Loved the last pic of Atlantis vapor trail and of course the sunsets are just wow!
