Today is the final day of my 10 Day Photo Challenge set by my friend Francisco Bravo Cabrera.
Yesterday’s photo showed some of the explorers on the Monument to the Discoveries at Belem, Lisbon.
The photo Challenge says that we have to choose one travel related picture a day without saying where it is, and although over the last 10 days I’ve chosen to include pictures from far and wide, I honestly believe that we don’t have to travel far to find something of beauty or interest, which is why today’s picture is much nearer to home.
Travel has always been in my blood, but I’ve only ever been able to travel when circumstances permit, and so I’ve always explored my own locality which is never as boring as we all think it is. During 2020 Covid-19 has forced people to get to know their own backyard a bit better, and that can only be a good thing. Somebody once said that “Life is what passes you by today while you’re planning for tomorrow” and it’s absolutely true, so until travelling to more exotic places becomes a reality again, it may be worth looking closer at what we all have around us. Thank you for following my 10 Day Challenge.
