Happy Earth Day!

It’s going to take me at least 7 ½ lifetimes to see and do everything I want to on this enormous, beautiful planet. My Bucket List includes every last bit of its incredible diversity.

Happy Earth Day!

PS. I wonder if Ailsa (of Where’s My Backpack?) and Sue (of A Word In Your Ear) both picked Round as their photo theme this week because of Earth Day, of if it’s a happy coincidence?

Unknown Caribbean island on the way to Jamaica... perhaps someone could identify it for me!

  4. Ingrid says:

    That’s quite the collection of photos and locations. I’m sure it would be difficult to pick a favorite 🙂

  5. So very true!!! Got to look after this planet – it’s the only one we have 🙂
    Your photo collection for this post is incredible!! Love the prairie dog one and Taku Glacier! How we hope to one day visit Alaska!!

      It was one of those trips that always seemed much to big to consider, until we started looking into it properly. Then we realised it wasn’t as much of a pipe dream as we’d feared. It ‘s still one of the best trips we ever made. Do it!

  6. Inspirational photos (and a few great memories). I’ve given up seeing everything I want to see. Actually, I say that but I constantly fight against the instinct to squeeze just one more thing into the itinerary.

I'd love to hear what you've got to say!
