“The Niagara Falls is simply a vast amount of water going the wrong way over some unnecessary rocks,”
wrote Oscar Wilde in 1882.
Sitting in a forest, next to a lake, reading a book…ah, what I would give to be doing that right now. And I can see myself being a happy hermit. Best of luck to you, and happy travels!
Thank you! I can see that you omitted the cigar. :-) Very healthy.
And your blog also looks very interesting. Beautiful photos and very practical tips. I like it that you mention the question of costs as well, because that is what most of our readers are wondering about: How do you finance your travels?
Ah, yes, no cigar. Some food would be nice, though, and they don’t even have to be healthy. In fact, the more butter, the better. :-D I wrote about travel costs because I find that that’s what keeps a lot of people from traveling. They don’t even consider the idea of traveling because they think they can’t afford it. But there’s a way to do it if you really want to. It’s a matter of wanting to enough to make sacrifices in other areas. I went to Paris with a Nokia 1100, so: priorities. :)
“Priorities” is absolutely right!
I have a Nokia 2330, so I fully understand what you mean.
Another Nokia! I think we’re on to something here. The secret to affording travel is sticking with Nokia.
And in my case: no new clothes until I absolutely need them and no car.
But cigars are non-negotiable I bet. :)
It’s the last luxury which I indulge in. But I am lucky because here in Italy, they are very cheap actually. 50 cent for a cigar, and it’s not healthy to smoke more than one per day anyway, so that doesn’t cost too much.
There are things, I suppose, that we enjoy so much that they practically become a part of us. And if they don’t cost that much, so much the better.
…but the water at the front of the photo looks just sooooooooo amazing. Powerful. Beautiful colours. Great shot :)
It’s not my photo, I should add. I have not been to Niagara Falls yet.
All cool – I’ve been there back in 70’s and yet lots and lots of water I did not like the coloured lights that shone on the waterfall at night – simple white light would have sufficed for my taste :D
I saw some photos of these disco lights. They seem kitschy indeed.
Kitsch is THE word for it alright :)
