Jumping On This Exciting “Travel Challenge!” A Social Media Celebration Of Our World!

Who’s Up For a Travel Challenge?

Yes, that’s paradise, also known as Thailand…to me, it was a great way to jump into a social media challenge I was nominated to participate in – and which I am doing gladly!

Here is my shot to get that participation underway:

Details On This “Travel Challenge!”

The above photo shows just how inspiring our world can be – and how exhilarating it can be to explore it.

Now, about the “travel challenge”: it’s all about visual images – so the challenge is to post a favorite travel picture for 10 days without explanation and nominate someone else to participate.

I love traveling, and I love taking pictures, so this was an easy one for me…

The View From The Segrada…

I have shared many of my travel adventures, including this view.

My wife and I climbed up the interior of Barcelona’s iconic Sagrada Famiglia church, still under construction after 100+ years…

Barcelona is a magical city, and we explored its history, culture and of course food as well…but it is the wonder of nature that really excites me – something as simple as the sun breaking through the clouds while traveling on a ferry across Seattle’s Puget Sound…

If I nominate you and you don’t want to participate, don’t worry, but if you do, please link back to me as I would love to see what you choose to post.

I’m nominating:


Savannah has her own content writing business based in Colorado, and she always shares great pictures of her, her husband and her dog hiking through nature there…always an entertaining and informative read.

I was nominated by Carol, whose website link is below. Carol shares terrific stories about exotic food and unique recipes, as well as important stories about our environment!


Now, back to Barcelona:

Yes, those are whole Iberico Hams, hanging in Barcelona’s famous Boqueria, a food wonderland that my wife and I explored…if you want to see more of our Barcelona adventure, you can click on my story here:

Also, why not sign up to receive emails whenever I post? It’s easy to do, I do NOT collect any information about you at all, there are absolutely NO ads of any kind, just stories about movies, music, books, food, travel and pop culture…
